    I had a set of early original SRT Challenger wheels I used for snow tires on my old 2012 300SRT. I had them black PVD chrome plated and added a fresh set of Kumho PS91's; 275/40/20 Z-rated. The fronts needed 5mm spacers to create some clearance from the Hellcat Brembo calipers. Rides great and smooth as silk up to 105mph (fastest so far). I like the look.....

    I love the color of the rims! My 2013 392 had that color ... I think it was called vapor black or hyper black? Ugh ... I do not remember, so blonde! :D

    Look nice, but makes it look like a ScatPak or SRT 392. I'm leaning the other way. I snapped a pic of a Hellcat rim in front of my 71 Barracuda with Rallye wheels. Pic didn't turn out well tho. Maybe I'll get a photoshop to check the look. But 4.5x5 pattern vs metric...

    Looks great Mo-par. Who did you use for the PVD coating?

    I've always liked those wheels with the natural aluminum finish and they look even better with the black PVD coating. Fantastic!!!

    That wheel fitment is terrible. I'm glad you like it OP.

    I guess the rest of us that like them should have checked with you before we decided what our personal taste should be. I'll keep that in mind. Thank you so much for pissing in my Wheaties!

    Yeah, I got a set of 5MM spacers for the rear ordered...should fix the fitment concern.

    I've recevied some nice feedback on these wheels but also some comments that the rear fitment was lame. The original fitment/look on Post #1 used only 5mm front spacers, which are needed to clear the Brembo calipers.

    I ordered a set of 20mm spacers for the rear and just installed them.

    Here are links should you ever want to put on a set of OEM wheels that require spacers.
    FRONT: 5MM| 5X115MM| 71.5| DODGE MAGNUM CHARGER CHRYSLER 300| FLAT BILLET WHEEL SPACERS
    REAR: Dodge Challenger (2) 20mm Thick Wheel Spacers by "Adaptec Speedware" Made In USA

    I had the rear spacer's edges powdercoated black: WP_20160804_002.jpg WP_20160804_003.jpg Hope this helps for those contemplating changing the look up and/or are using your factory Hellcat wheels for track events, which is now my plan.

    That definitely "fixed" it. Looks good.

    I used to use wheel spacers like your rear ones, back in the day on my '69 Dart. I would never consider using them on a car with this much HP. Good luck to you.
