Re: Velgen Wants to Hear from Us!

They look good but...I really do not mean to sound like a douche, but those wheels look pretty similar or any number of other wheel suppliers. Maybe I'm missing some nuances, sorry.

I don't know how you would sound like a douche, perfect question.
From my experience with Velgen, I think we have found a wheel manufacturer who has good customer service and fair prices for a quality low pressure cast wheel. So other manufacturers may have the same look but may lack these other nuances.

I think those wheels on tire rack won't fit because of the offset. These need to clear the break calipers on the srt. Just because there 20 x 10 doesn't mean they'll fit

Re: Velgen Wants to Hear from Us!

Ya 5x5(5x127) is an odd size for most aftermarket companies. I have found a few that are willing to make a custom one off set. Velgen, Avant Garde, CCW, etc. A lot of the wheels I like are not load rated for our Jeeps either. They will work on sedans but not a 5k lb SUV

Re: Velgen Wants to Hear from Us!

Guys, I just said the Velgen look pretty similar to other mfg offerings. After digging in a bit and snooping the Velgen, there are some characteristics like the gold color, 9-spokes and precise shape of the spoke which make it distinctive. 20' away, they look pretty similar but upon closer inspection they are distinctive.

Now that you've challenged me , here is a wheel I reeeely liked but it was out of my budget. One it looks cool with multiple spokes, like the Velgen VMB?, and they are very light. OZ Superturismo Dakar in blk, silver or graphite. They fit my Limited and the SRT.

O.Z. Superturismo Dakar Bright Silver Paint

Re: Velgen Wants to Hear from Us!

I am new to the Velgen Wheels. Like them a lot. My first GC SRT will be here soon and thought of the Classic5 for my ride. I don't see a lot of talk about them. Are they new or old to the lineup of Velgen wheels. With less spokes, are they weaker than the 6,7,or9 spoke? I've seen a few pics of GC's with them but more of the other wheels.

Re: Velgen Wants to Hear from Us!

Size wise I think 20x10.5 will be perfect. Especially if it sticks out a little more so you can get a 315 tire to fit....
