that's funny as the wheels are my biggest gripe about it. I'm still not WoW'd by one when I see them, but they are nice.

Second time I put an eyeball on one was on the road while driving. It literally did not occur to me that it was an SRT8 until I rolled up next to it and slightly in front of it ie: the red brembos, vented hood, and front damn gave it away. This is not a new thought, but it was shocking how undifferentiated it was from the WK2 from the backside.

If you would have noticed the wide tires, that probably should have been the first hint. The tires are so wide they almost remind me of the steamroller tires that you see on the back of the BMW X5 Sport Pkg.
