Are you guys concerned the quality of the replicas? They are usually cheaper because they are manufactured by gravity casting which leaves open spaces and a less dense and weaker wheel. This method is very inferior to the stock OEM forged method. Just food for thought.

The replicas from factory reproductions are super high quality. Ive personally had 5 sets and not had one single problem. They have an excellent reputation.

Do you know how they are manufactured? Gravity cast, low pressure cast, forged? Just curious

You could call and talk.to.dave at factory repro and he would know. Believe it or not...they are lighter than the oem forged.

Re: Reproduction OEM SRT wheels

I purchased a set of replicas from http://www.oewheelsllc.com. I have the black chrome and they seem to be holding up pretty well so far.ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1422584193.550922.jpg

I sent them an email asking about their manufacturing process and the country the wheels are made but never received a response. There isn't any information I could find on their website either.

Re: Reproduction OEM SRT wheels

they are 20x9's and I went with a stock size 265/50r20 nitto g2's for now, may go bigger later but I drive a lot of highway right now so didn't want to sacrifice gas mileage.

Is there anyway you can post more pics of these rims . I'm really close to getting these myself but in polished color . I have a 2014 black summit jeep and I think the goliaths would look awesome ! I just need to see pictures of them up close to see if they really look like the originals . I'd really appreciate it.
