Whats up with replicas???

I have never owned a vehicle where there was so much talk or mention of replica wheels. I don't see it as a bad thing but I have to ask...

Why does the Jeep have such a high number of replicas of OEM wheels?
Is there something Im missing in all this?

Re: Whats up with replicas???

because the oem wheels are so expensive. For example....The Jeep SRT8 wheels are forged and retail for $1000-1300 each....when replicas are $700-1000 for a complete set of 4.

Re: Whats up with replicas???

Like Scott said, you are missing the price difference. If the reps werent so cheap I doubt i'd spring for stock srt8 rims. I've already ruined three rep rims so far, two due to grinding against curbs and they other from nailing a pothole and didnt cry since I can just replace them cheap. Plus they come in shiny chrome and black which I dont think they do in the srt8 rims.
