So about these SRT replicas
 
is everyone getting them from that site? i forget the name, but you know what i mean.

they only come in chrome and gloss black?

what about the center cap? can that be replaced? maybe with something with the Jeep logo?

The oem Jeep chrome center caps work on the replicas

I think they also come in Competition Gray. If you get gray or black, you can either keep the blank center cap, or buy some chrome Jeep ones, and paint them to match...

"center cap".
When you buy the reps you get blank caps. The Limited oem caps fit the hole so the wheels look factory.
Justforjeeps.com has OEM caps for sale.

I heard the Jeep center caps fit a little loose in the srt reps, thats why I didnt get them yet. I tried my stock grey 17" rim center caps and yes they do fit a little loose.

They pop in tight, when seated they could rattle or turn a little. So I put a squirt of RVT silicone in back. I've had no problems.
BTW the wheels have remained true and vibration free.

Being 100% honest one of my chrome srt rims was "out of round" when I received them, the tire shop showed me on the balancing machine and it did look off. BUT, I had it mounted anyways and have been running it since Feb I wanna say with zero issues. AND, I did contact factoryreproductions about it right away and they told me to call them, which I never bothered doing, but I feel they would def send me a new rim at the time and they are a great company to deal with. So, for the price of them you really cant go wrong, I absolutely luv my rims and would def do it over again. Im going to run them straight thru winter too, im not about to put my stock rims back on and buy snow tires, which i prob should but oh well.

So yea, its a no brainer, go with the factoryreproductions and you will be more than happy for the cheap price and it lets you do other mods with the money saved like i did. No one even knows they are not stock srt rims except srt8 owners near me, but screw it, my rims look awesome!!!!! I get many compliments on them all the time.
