Optioned SRT Rims

Hey all,

I have come across these pics, dont know if they have already been floating around. I was 100% going with the black vapour rims, and more likely still am, BUT, looking at this picture of the Goliath rims, they don't look that bad IMO. The question is, are they what is going to be available.....they look vastly different to those that debuted in Detroit..., perhaps the picture has been photoshopped a bit??????

Re: Optioned SRT Rims

That's a computer animation as I'm sure you know and the dimensions of the vehicle and those "goliath" rims don't look proportional to reality. Personally, I think the Black Vapor chrome are by far the nicest of the three choices.

Yeah your right, they look good animated though!, realistically they look crap, and yes the vapour chrome are the best of the bunch, will look awesome on my white srt.
Cheers

So true. I really, really despise all these disproportional drawings and computer generated crap that exaggerate the advertisement of new vehicles. Its friggin false advertising man and all these drawings are that way anymore..... Seems like all concept vehicles out there start out looking phenomenal and then the real deal shows up and you're like WTF happened to original

Agree, it's wrong, kinda reminds me of those mcdonalds adds where they show a perfect big mac only when you get it, it's half the size and look like it's fallen of the back of a truck, only thing is a big mac is $5.00 and a Srt is $90,000.00.....

The top picture (with the "Goliath" wheels) appears to have been "flattened" in order to occupy the full width of the page, so the truck appears lower and therefore more aggressive than it really is. The two bottom pictures retain correct proportions width x height.
And I agree with those who state that the wheels, tires and wheelwell gap probably don't have proportions that match the actual truck's.
Looking forward to the first tests by the press, with real-life pictures!

Re: Optioned SRT Rims

So are the current (12-13) stock wheels no longer available from 14 on?
