I need help choosing wheels and your explanation why.
I have the options of three:

SRT Forged Alcoa rims
-20s
-650$
-just all four rims 20x9 and 20x10

Repro Vipers
-20s
-1200$
-come with rubber, sensors, same sizes

Chrome Clads
-20s
-300$
-off a r2t2 charger!

all seem good choices... but help me out on decision!
which ones which ones!?

Best choice and a great price. High quality forged aluminum wheels. However, no factory SRT LX wheel came in 20x10 they are 20x9 on all four corners.

Repro Vipers
-20s
-1200$
-come with rubber, sensors, same sizes

Repros are cast aluminum wheels and not as strong as forged. Might be an ok deal but it depends on the quality of the tires. The value of the wheels is less than the OEM SRT wheels.

Chrome Clads
-20s
-300$
-off a r2t2 charger!

Raw cast aluminum wheel with a plastic chrome cover. Looks nice but is still an inexpensive cast aluminum wheel with a plastic cover glued to it.

I had the forged ALCOA's on my '07.....I loved them. They weren't any heavier than my stock 18's. The width (9 inches) was better than the skinny stockers. My '13 has the forged Heritage 20's, but they are not ALCOA's, and only 8". I vote ALCOA's, for what Ddaddy stated above.

if you're planning on using the rims year round in an area that gets snow and uses salt on the road, the chrome clads will look the best 5 years down the road, FWIW....

Forged always will weigh less than cast in the same size. Cast has to be thicker to maintain strength.

My vote is to get something unique that you like. Why just follow the crowd? Vipers were cool when only a few people had them, but now there are so many you wonder if they are coming from the factory with them.

Yes i will be going with Alcoas, hoping to PD them to match the cars scheme and using only for summer. Would like the Vipers but the budget would not allow that.
