    I'm thoroughly impressed with everything abot the Hellcat Challenger, except the weight, and the butt ugly wheels. I ordered pich black and the standard oogly black wheels. I don't care for the brass monkey wheels either, so it didn't make sense to pay extra for them. If I could get a credit for 1/4 the replacement cost of the stock wheels, I would carry it home from the factory and find some great chrome wheels. Does anyone have some nice chrome wheels they can post some pictures of on the forum? Thanks.

    I think the HC wheels ( both Black and BM) are FANTASTIC!!! To each their own ... :)

    As far as styling goes, my favorite wheels for 2015 are on the Shaker cars.

    I was not a fan of my black wheels but its growing on me. I get lots of complements as it kinda contrasty with the white car so I am warming up to them a bit.
    I had the Ram fake chrome stock wheels on my 2012 Ram 1500 and did not like the chrome look. I would prefer a stock OEM pewter ( flat matt silver, grey if it was available) But I prefer OEM wheels and never been a fan of going aftermarket but that just me. I do like the idea of the fake eBay OEM looking wheels in a wider version than stock.
    Glad we all like different things as it keeps things interesting.

    Let me know where to send the $1000 and I will take those wheels so you don't have to look at them. This is one of the forum members cars with chrome 5 spokes. image.jpg

    This route will cost you. Triumph Performance Wheels has this model of wheels. They can paint them or I suppose they can send them to your favorite chrome dipper in CA. Very high quality, as light and a bit lighter in weight than the OEM. A few of us have them in various finishes. This is their version of black chrome paint. They would look great in pure chrome, I may even change my color or send my OEM's out now that I have seen more dark Hellcats in chrome.

    I couldnt agree more.
    I ordered my Triumph wheels in December 2014 the day my HC arrived.
    I hated the black wheels with the little tires on the rear.
    I didnt drive it until the new shoes arrived.

    shaker wheels are nice too, but remind me of the Z28 or is it Zl1 rims

    i like the style, just not the finish...seen them in black chrome ($1000 to do to your rims) and they looked amazing.....its what i plan to do when mine get too many chips

    black is what is on every top end performance car now...by putting chrome on your dating yourself by 10 years and not up with the times!!

    those truck rims would look great on a HC....

    gun metal is a better color than black....wish the normal SRT rims came as an option for the HC
