Reproduction SRT Wheels

Hey guys,
I was just wondering if there is a difference in quality and fitment between the OEW and Factory Repo wheels? Are they hub-centric? Does anyone know how much they weigh?

Thanks,

Aaron

Re: Reproduction SRT Wheels

they are cast aluminum instead of forged so they are not as strong as oem wheels

Re: Reproduction SRT Wheels

Just bought a set through OE wheels this morning. Hopefully I'll see them by the end of the week.

As a separate question....isn't there someone on here selling the vinyl inserts for the SRT reps?

Re: Reproduction SRT Wheels

Thanks guys...I'm leaning towards the OEWs, for they come in polished. I didn't see FR offering polished, just chrome and painted. I have an Overland and don't have any chrome on my rig.

Does anyone know if a 285 40 R20 will fit within the wheel well? I want a slightly smaller diameter tire...
