Want Charger SRT8 Wheels for my WK Laredo...

Hey guys, I haven't been too active on the forum since joining but it is high time I get a bit more involved and start doing what I want with my GC. It's 2010 Laredo in Modern blue, and those 17" six spoke silver wheels. They've some Protera tires on them now, and they look pretty fat from behind which is pleasing, but that huge side wall is fugly. They were just fine at first, but after seeing this video I just wasn't happy with what I had anymore... funny how that happens:



It looks to me like this fella has LX Dodge Charger series SRT8 wheels on his 5x5 pattern hubs. What gives? I've been trying to find repro's in a 20" with the correct pattern with no joy. Can anyone point out where I might find them? If not I'll have to 'settle' for the WK SRT8 styled wheels, and save the LX 20"s for my '08 KK sport.

Also, does it look like this guy in the video is running 18"s on his jeep? The tires seem thick compared with other 20"s I've seen.

Jeff

Found: Adapters... thanks anyways.

Well, I ended up finding my answer by accident while browsing ebay, a 5x5 to 5x4.5 adapter with 1.25" spacing looks like it will work for my wanted reproduction appearance.

I'd like to see what the charger wheels look like on your truck. I don't know a whole lot of technical stuff but I had wondered the same thing when I was looking for different wheel options.

Re: Want Charger SRT8 Wheels for my WK Laredo...

If you take a look at that video, I think those are Charger wheels. I'm not overly familiar with the technical aspects either, I have to figure out the backspacing compared with my stock wheels and see if that adapter I mentioned pushes them way out.

I like the Altitudes you have on your WK Phantom, current to previous models wheel swaps tend to look good.
