Re: Wheel Pic Request (Non SRTs)

This is the best i can do. I personally dont like it BUT, i think the rock starts look 100X better w/o the center caps.


With out center caps.

Re: Wheel Pic Request (Non SRTs)

Hmmm doesnt quite look right on the vehicle. Plus throwing on spacers.....

I still keep coming right back to the replicas... not sure about vipers if they ever come out. too tonka'ish but I may change my mind when I see what they really look like.

Re: Wheel Pic Request (Non SRTs)

The dalars are sweet. Ive been looking into them. The only problem is they d not make our pattern. You actualy have to get giovanna to send them un drilled, then get a wheel shop to drill them appropriately. From my understanding the back also needs to be machined to get the right offset



NHWK if you get a moment can you make the srt wheels look like they have color matched wheel vinly in the valleys of the spokes? I have seen people use black in there but think it would be cool to color match it.

Re: Wheel Pic Request (Non SRTs)

The dalars are made for our WK's. They didn't used to make them but when I called a few months ago on 4/1/09 they told me they were currently making them...they are just very hard to find and most shops have no clue except what their book says.

Call WTW Corp they make the Giovanna Dalars and talk to Greg Grigoryan.

FYI, Check out this thread, Steel Blue WK with black spokes on SRT wheels. I will use these pics to edit them if you want but its not going to look much different in a picture black vs blue.

Now my reasoning could be wrong but this could potentially be at about the stock specs on a 20x8 wheel with a 1/2" spacer....

I still would need to have an idea of what it would look like tho....
Actually,you're going the wrong direction with the offset and spacers. The positive offset moves the rims "inwards" . If there's not enough then they will start to stick out beyond the fenders,then if you add a spacer it gets even worse. Also keep in mind that backspacing and offset are related to the wheel and it's size,not to one another. You can have an 8" wide wheel with say a 6 inch backspacing and a +50mm offset,if the wheel was 9" wide you could still have a +50mm offset but the backspacing goes up to 7".
