Re: Viper replica pics!!!

Thanks guys!

Tires are Goodyear Eagle GTII's, sized 275/45/20. They seem to be just a hair larger in diameter than the stock ones.

The rims do have a bit of a curve inwards towards the center. I'd estimate it's about 1/2 to 3/4 inch total. Just enough to notice.

AND I will have better pics as soon as I get a chance and the weather co-operates. They actually look nicer when veiwed back from a distance and more directly from the side,rather than the 3/4 shots.

Re: Viper replica pics!!!

Need pricing on those. And the weight, because I'm sure they weigh more then the stock SRTs. Cast wheels always weigh more then forged, but by how much?

Do they clear the stock Brembos?

dont work over the brembos Mike. The SRT reps only weighed about 4 pounds more than the oem SRT's....but no idea on these.

Re: Viper replica pics!!!

Factory Reproductions came through on the only two wheels that count. Those look sick I'm jealous I saw a SRT-10 with the viper wheels and they do recess in a little.. adds character.

Re: Viper replica pics!!!

Okay, I'm not understanding why they made these so they don't fit with the stock brakes? Especially since the Viper also uses fixed Brembos, so obviously the style isn't the problem. They obviously made them with the wrong offset or backspacing. That's a serious ****up on the manufacturers part. But then again, they also didn't make a wider set for the back, so their heads are up their asses anyway.

Re: Viper replica pics!!!

I don't know the weight of the rims alone,but acording to ups they are 72 pounds each with the tires. After slinging them and the stock wheel and tire combo around,i'd estimate they are about 10 pounds heavier each. Not the best but if i was really concerned about performance,i wouldn't have bought the v-6.

Pricing should be 899 for the 4, 20x9 rims alone and 1425 with the same tires as mine.

And mike,I'm sure there's several reasons why they couldn't make the wheels to fit over the stock Bembo's. They were starting with an exiting "pattern" from the LX platform cars,but they wanted to keep the same basic style and curvature to the face, but adjust the offset and bolt pattern. The Brembo's are much thicker around the rotor and would have required the rim to stick out more than it does (less positive offset) and if you look at my one pic,you'll see how they fit flush already,move it out any more and it will stick out beyond the fender,looking just plain stupid, as well as technically being illegal. The offset isn't wrong, it's what it needs to be to fit THAT style of rim on THAT vehicle. They will have to completely redsign the rim, remove any dish to the shape and possibly even make the spokes thinner. Not a simple retool of an existing mold.
These guys have been in business for quite a while and i'm pretty confident they know what they're doing. If it was that easy,they'd do it.

Re: Viper replica pics!!!

So they don't fit the LX SRT8s either that means, because their brakes are identical to ours other then the bolt pattern.

Not buying that reasoning. To change the bolt pattern and offset they had to make new molds anyway, so theres no excuse for them not fitting and not offering a staggered rear 20x10. Like it or not, they either ****ed up or were too lazy to do it right.

Amazing how we fit 20x9s and 20x10s with 275/315 tires and they don't stick out and clear all the stock components, but this company couldn't do that. Doesn't matter how long they've been in business, they still don't know what they're doing, and they're proving it with these.

Re: Viper replica pics!!!

hey mike maybe they dont want to deal with all the srt8 guys horseshit and complaints and thoughts. just look at your 'requirements'.

so they said F THE SRT8, we are after the larger WK market. Period. End of thought.

Remember, 10K vs 500K market. And maybe, just maybe, when they make the 22's, they WILL fit the SRT8 by accident.

sort of like their srt8 replicas. they made the 20's. they have sold countless of them to WK owners. I doubt they sell many to srt8 owners..........
