Whats up with replicas???
 
I have never owned a vehicle where there was so much talk or mention of replica wheels. I don't see it as a bad thing but I have to ask...

Why does the Jeep have such a high number of replicas of OEM wheels?
Is there something Im missing in all this?

because the oem wheels are so expensive. For example....The Jeep SRT8 wheels are forged and retail for $1000-1300 each....when replicas are $700-1000 for a complete set of 4.

Like Scott said, you are missing the price difference. If the reps werent so cheap I doubt i'd spring for stock srt8 rims. I've already ruined three rep rims so far, two due to grinding against curbs and they other from nailing a pothole and didnt cry since I can just replace them cheap. Plus they come in shiny chrome and black which I dont think they do in the srt8 rims.
