Anybody have polished SRT reps?

Hey guys, I know alot of you are running SRT reps. I want to get a set for my WK but want them in a polished finish. It seems that Factory Reproductions is the most popular manufacturer of the SRT reps but I dont think they offer polished.

I saw someone mention oewheelsllc and I checked out their website. They offer a polished finish (although its out of stock right now)

http://www.oewheelsllc.com/Wheels-fo...-p8538769.html

I am in no huge rush, so I could wait for these to come back in stock. My question is does anyone know how the quality of these compare to Factory Reproductions? The price is a bit cheaper, which is good - I just want to make sure its a quality wheel

Any input is appreciated fellas

Re: Anybody have polished SRT reps?

i know a few members have ordered from there. i think i read that they are the made at the same place (exact same wheels) but don't quote me on that. OEW has their chrome ones on sale right now reduced from $780 to $740. also, check out this thread...http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php...&highlight=OEW

Re: Anybody have polished SRT reps?

It depends whether you care if they're staggered or not. OEW wheels are not staggered, however FR come staggered. Also FR states that their wheels are made in house, so most likely they don't come from the same place.

I am just wondering whether to buy a spare set of 20" wheels for winter when the 22" replicas are coming out in the spring most likely and I know I will want a set of them. Decisions decisions, damn.

Re: Anybody have polished SRT reps?

Well if I go staggered, I am going stock tire sizes 255/285. My little V6 is gonna have a hard enough time pulling around these wheels as it is lol.

But if I go 20x9 all around, I guess I could run a 275, and be able to rotate tires.

Thanks for the input

oh man that sucks!! i hope his claim comes through and they replace the wheel!

so if he had staggered polished reps, do you know where he got them from? I am pretty sure oewheels only has 20X9 all around for polished

thanks!

Re: Anybody have polished SRT reps?

I asked him where he ordered them from........he said he cant remember

but he knew it wasnt FR and they came out of somewhere from Michigan!

(that more than explains why they were dysfunctional....LOL go bucks!!)
