Really? Do they use a water jet CNC style type of machine for the wheels? I know exactly what you're talking about if so, and Id bet you are right. Im assuming all the reps are the same exact wheel just from different sellers. But again you never know who's out there and has a buck to make a buck. Still gonna give 'em a call.

What are peoples thoughts on going 275/55 on 9" wheels all around vs. going 255/45 all around on a 9" for winter use? I want the fenders filled, but I want to handle in some snow still, what's best?

That is the exact reason why if i wanted SRT wheels i would wait and save forever for Factory wheels.

I work at a tire and wheel shop (town fair tire of New England) and i see way to many made in china wheels come back cracked or in terrible condition after only a short time.

Re: Replica Wheels

well still waiting on driveline customs...its been a week and have been able to speak with them once after numerous messages and emails

choosing to buy through their website instead of ebay may have been a mistake. will not give me a tracking number or a delivery date.

anyways i have a very lonely set of yokohamas (arrived in 2 days from tirerack).

Re: Replica Wheels

[QUOTE=06HemiLtd;221157]if you're thinking about those wheels, i'd contact the company directly and purchase them straight through them. here is the link http://www.factoryreproductions.com/...o=jeep&wheel=1

i've read where other members have got the srt-8 replicas for $800 shipped. eBay has the listing fees and selling fees the company has to pay so they charge slightly more for the wheels.

this company was from another thread here on JG... http://www.drivelinecustoms.com/whee...t_pattern=&poc=[/QUOTE

Just checking this site and noticed their wheels are 20 X 9.5" and couldn't find any 10" I haven't found them @ 800 I got mine from quadratec for 190ea,+ship =5 20X9s for about $1050 Black. Polished or chrome is more

Re: Replica Wheels

I Like the 50s, I just like a bit more sidewall to fill out the fender well...might even reduce fuel cost a tiny wee bit maybe 1or2mph @ top end

Re: Replica Wheels

driveline customs was $630 for black reps shipped to TN, saved about $150 bucks but paying for it in delivery time/customer service.

I rent the local chrysler dealer their building and have developed a pretty good relationship with them...its worked well for them too because everyone in my family drives jeeps or chryslers. I'll get some pictures up of the 02 prowler and 05 viper seen in the photo...love both of them and they compliment each other so well depending on what kind of driving mood i am in that day.

Re: Replica Wheels

Just stumbled onto this thread. So did anyone end up buying from O.E. wheels? Thats a helluva good price but I cant help but be suspicious as to why or how their prices are so low .... lol
