School me on SRT8 Replicas
 
I have a 2006 WK 5.7L Limited. Factory suspension, along with factory 17" wheels.

I want to invest in a set of the 20" SRT reps. Now here's my questions (Forgive me i'm new with changing wheels)

1. What (If any) modifications do I have to do to make them fit without rubbing, etc.
2. Where do I purchase a set with tires?

Thanks in advance:thumbsup:

No mods necessary. Just bolt them on. Look at the vendor section and they"ll set you up with the correct tire/wheel size. You"ll want the 20" x 9" wheel package.

Factory Reproductions treated me right....I have 22" but they have 20" as well. They are a dealer here.

Ok cool, thanks guys!

I read somewhere that the small bolt in the wheel well off of the suspension will rub the tire? That's why I really needed clarification:thumbsup:

Ok cool thanks.

I have heard good and bad things about Factory Reporductions. But it seems like they're the only big game in town. Aside from a place on eBay called "Tobacco Road Auto" (Link below). The company makes them non-staggered as well which it seems i'd be going with.

Any opinions? I'm trying to find a good deal on wheel/tire packaged together.

I used OE Wheels and they are a vendor on this site. Great experience. Scott in Internet Sales will set you up with a tire and wheel package.

ALL of the replica srt wheels are made in the same factory in china, so go with the cheapest price you can find. i ordered from some vendor i found online who i determinded to be the cheapest when i was looking (cant remember the company name) the wheels ended up being shipped directly from doug at factory reproductions so it really doesnt matter where you buy from. i have had real srt wheels on my jeep in a staggered setup and now i have black reps, i have never had a problem with rubbing. what color are you looking to get and what color is your jeep?

Good point, that's exactly what I was thinking. Black WK with Black Plasti-dip badges. 20% tint so i'm kind of going for the blacked out effect.

I prefer a gloss black set, but haven't really strayed away from other finishes.

Wow, truck looks great man. Thats the look i'm shooting for at the end of the day. Yeah the gloss black are where i'm at. I just got a quote for about $1800 shipped to NJ from Factory Reproductions, and still waiting to hear from OE.

$1800 for 4 20x9 Gloss black, w/ TPMS Sensors and Nexen 275/45R20's mounted/balanced.
