    If I understand this correctly, if I want an extra couple of rims that match the black factory ones I have only two choices:

    1. Purchase a set of Mopar rims which I assume are very expensive?

    2. Purchase a set of reproduction rims which look practically identical and are relatively inexpensive; BUT, are only 9" wide?

    Do I have this right?

    Thank you !

    They also make them in 20x10 but they are a heavier cast wheel not a forged wheel like factory. But if you want quality talk to Biz He is a vendor here Triumph Forged wheels.

    I just wish they would make the scat pack (easier to clean) wheels in 9.5 wide. Make mine a set of black chrome please!

    No your not limited to a 9" wheel... Triumph wheels they actually recommend 9.5 for the front and 10.5 for the rear. Go to the contributing vendor section and look them up.;)

    Nice wheels for sure but I am not going to be spending 5000 for wheels. That is crazy.

    My point being, for 5000....they don't make the car faster, handle better or anything. I will spend that money on another car....probably one of my old Mopars but maybe a down payment on another Hellcat....hmmmm?

    Some could argue that wheels can make a car go faster, handle better and more. Example would be a lighter rim is less weight. So, mo faster... A quality rim can run "truer". So, mo better handling. (And fuel savings and tire wear). As far as "nothing else".. A good wheel will withstand high speeds better than others. so, mo life! Some have said that some wheels when they are reheated/treated during powder coating ; that it makes them weaker.. Hellcat if I know, but reasonable points.
    I'm looking at a set of wheels 'cus I think they look cool! and lastly, although not me, some of "us" don't have payments.. So to put ones views on others can make one look uninformed.
