Re: Which Rims To Choose: SRT8 Reps & SRT10 Reps

If I had a choice, Black chrome is what I would go with.....gloss black is just to much I think, it looks wierd if your tires ever get dirty

Re: Which Rims To Choose: SRT8 Reps & SRT10 Reps

Black chrome is a chrome like surface where gloss black is still a painted surface, easiest way to put it

Re: Which Rims To Choose: SRT8 Reps & SRT10 Reps

I hope they offer it in a machined/polished version. I really don't want chrome but will go that route if I have to....

I am going to assume they are going to make them fit the wk2 also.
Any other new output?? Is this forsure happening? I sent FR an email and they havent emailed back

^They are already in process of making them. They won't be on our shore until March 2011 at the earliest. These are 100%.

Re: Which Rims To Choose: SRT8 Reps & SRT10 Reps

^I bet they will. Clean five spokes are always, imho, the best wheel. These are going to become the "viper wheels" for the jeep.

Re: Which Rims To Choose: SRT8 Reps & SRT10 Reps

Hey White Chocolate how is your jeep set-up? Do you have the SRT8 bumpers and rockers? If so, why go with the biggest possible mud tires? Kinda useless. If not, then what it seems to me is you're leaning more towards more tire than rim. So IMO I think you should go with whatever 20's you like and get as much tire as possible. However, I have 20's on mine and it may seem like there's a lot of room but really there isn't once you turn the wheel. There's about an inch, if that, between my tire and the wheel-well plastic piece unless of course you plan on shaving that off. With that said 22's and big mud tires are pretty much out of the question especially if you don't plan on doing any mods/lifts. Also, semi-gloss black would be nice if you don't want mirror black and I agree Chrome is sort of last year and most importantly it is hard to maintain... unless you don't mind it pitting or constantly having to buff it or what have you. But then again black is becoming pretty old too. Decisions decisions... Good luck bro!!!

Please refer to the pics below of what I am talking about... hope this helps!!!

I have just a limited, with stock bumpers, no mods. Ummm as for 22's im only going for the biggest tires because of where I live. If I can fit an aggressive tire on it, I will try to do it.
