Any 2014 SRT's built with 5 Spoke Goliath wheels yet?
 
I'm seeing Deep Cherry SRT's being built that were ordered after mine. I'm starting to think maybe there is still a hold up on the Goliath (standard) wheels. The availability for them was delayed from March 1 to March 25 but that shouldn't be an issue now. Have any SRT's been built or being built with these wheels? :confused:

Vapor wheels seem to be the trend. For good reason I might say!

I like the Vapor wheels and the darker colors appear to be the trend in exterior color too but they are both more difficult to keep clean. I live on a gravel road so ease of cleaning has to take priority with me.:)

Don't see why there would be any real hold-ups......











.....these wheels have been out for years on Dodge trucks :)

Please share your 0-60 times with us on the said road! lol I'd be happy with 15" steelies and hubcaps if I were lucky enough to own a SRT Jeep.

Just goes to show that the five spoke is a timeless design. Even the Cragar five spokes from the 60's not only still look good but people still buy them. I never did get used to the six spoke on our SS.

I thought long and hard about those wheels, but came to the same conclusions some others did. Got to love the black on white combo...timeless aggressive look!

Actually they kind of did. The six bolt pattern is based on the truck if I recall my Viper history correctly. The aluminum V10 engine was loosely based on the cast truck V10 also.
