Dodge changed the stock wheels on 23 :(

3512 102
Well, tonight I am extremely disappointed after I got a rendering finally showing up beside my order.

This is the car I thought I had ordered:
Wheel Tire Window Vehicle Hood

This is the render:
Wheel Vehicle Tire Window Hood

I apologize to anyone who likes these wheels, everyone has their own tastes, but I am extremely saddened. It dramatically changes the look of the car, and I am just upset with dodge for not having an updated build experience for us to use to order these cars. This is not what I was expecting at all. (The dealer does know to leave the license plate off my car though, so at least there is that! lol).

I'm calling my dealer tomorrow to ask him if it's possible to order a set of '22 stock OEM wheels. It's just honestly killing a lot of the joy of ordering this car for me to have such a prominent feature swapped out from what I was expecting. This was my first ordered car and I can't understate how in love with it I was.

Emphasis on was.

Don't suppose anyone here is near Boston/new england and has very lightly used '22 stock wheels you want to trade? Or does anyone have input on how to get the wheels I wanted?

They have definitely changed the stock standard body wheel for 2023 and the black Drag Wheels code WPJ are the ones you will be getting.

The previously standard black 5Deep wheels code WEB I don't even see as available as an option. The WSE Matt Vapor wheels are available but not the black WEB.

A little confused here, which wheel comes on the 2023? The 5 spoke or the 10 spoke?
The standard wheel on the standard body Helllcat for 2023 is the black Drag Wheel code WPJ, also known as the Split 5-Spoke. This same wheel used on 1320 and on Scat Pack with Dynamics Package.

I am actually looking for another dealer selling at MSRP to place a new order with the right wheels it bothers me so much.
The wheels you want are not available any more. You can get the 5-Deep in the Matte Vapor finish (WSE) but not in the traditional Black (WEB).

On about Jan 15th I noticed Dodge had the audacity to add the 2023 Hornet to the build configurator but still haven't put up the 23' Chargers and Challengers. I wrote them an email asking why they're lagging and the response was "we want the configurater to reflect the majority of what dealers have in stock! WATAF?? Makes no sense considering you can't order a 22 your way anymore anyway. They're basically just pissing on our backs and telling us it's a nice warm rain. Get your shit together Dodge and update your info. This is 2023 for Christ's sake, hire another dewd or a chick to work along side the kid who added the Hornet. Quit your STALLing STALLantis.
They have done this forever and probably won't change. They want you to get your information from the dealers so they intentionally hold the Build and Price back until sufficient cars (Hornet) have landed on dealer lots and you can then use the B&P to compare 2022 vs 2023. Yes it seems silly to intentionally withhold this information in this day and age but this is what they do. So get your info from a good dealer (rare) or here! [emoji3]

i seen the Hornet too, did you noticed the order from Your home option….home delivery too. Another way to reduce costs & jab the dealers they depend upon for service. [emoji51]
Pretty sure it still goes to a local dealer for PDI before delivery to you. Even Corvette does it this way for factory delivery.
