Thanks.

As far as comfort/ride/handling, I would say that it pretty much mirrors the stock feel (20's). If anything it feels a little more surefooted? I suppose that's because the wheels or maybe it's the tires are a tad wider so it gives it a wider track. I for one welcome it. Other than that, it's just as comfy as stock. Steering and braking all feel about the same. I think if there are to be any differences, it may be in the brand of tires perhaps? I went with Nitto's on mine.

I wouldn't do wheels that large on ours, but those look fantastic. The fit the R/T style perfectly. Nice choice.

What does something like a full wrap cost?

I have a black R/T down here in VA and I'm from NY so I spend many weekends headed up the NJTP picking up all kinds of crud.

Planning on putting black rims on my ride, haven't decided between gloss or flat yet though. The 22s are looking mighty fine on yours...

Thanks. I think 22's fit the Durango's best, just my opinion.

The full wrap (and I do mean full) using Xpel Ultimate costs $4500.00

Interesting, I've noticed the Durango has a fair amount of orange peel. Often the plastic protective wraps do as well, nature of the material and manufacturing process, does it in your opinion make this issue worse, better, or the same?

For the '14 Durango, I can't say I've noticed any orange peel surface. Paint is pretty decent. Same goes for the wrap. The quality of the wraps these days have come a long way. I can't comment on all the brand out there, but I will say that using Xpel Ultimate has left me satisfied.

On that note, I had a lady open her door too wide and hit my car. If it wasn't for the wrap for sure there would have been a scratch even a possible dent. The wrap completely protected the car. Can't even tell something happened.

How's the ride?

I just ordered my RT today. I know I'm going to get wider wheeles on it. Not sure I will go 22.

I have other cars with ultra low profile tires, they weigh half as the Durango, and as soon as the temperature is below 40 the ride becomes hard and the tires start to deteriorate rapidly......

Now if someone came up with a reasonable supercharger for the 5.7 Hemi, that's a mod I would love :-)

I can get behind a supercharger priced a little better, but you get what you pay for too...
