SRT8 Replica Wheels with Nexen Tires

Hey guys,

So I am thinking about getting the replica SRT8 20inch rims for my 11' Laredo. I contacted Factory Reproductions, and they have a price point of $1589.00 for the 4 wheels, tires, sensors, and thats without shipping.

Wheels: Jeep SRT8 - Gloss Black - Factory Reproductions

The tires that come with it are the 265/501R20 Nexen Roadian HP tires, TPM sensors, black lug nuts mounted as well. I was wondering if this is a) a good deal, and b) are these tires cheapo tires?

Thanks guys

Re: SRT8 Replica Wheels with Nexen Tires

Thanks for the info man. I contacted OE Wheels and their price is about $300 cheaper- great advice!

My other question is about the TPM Sensors. Does anybody know if they are required by law? If they aren't, do you think its worth getting them? OE Wheels quoted me at $136.00 for the Titan TPMs. I'm a little naive when it comes to this because I've never purchased after market rims before. Any advice would be great!

Thanks

Doubt it's required by law but it will throw off the Tire pressure light. If you can live with it go for it, i cant.
