Difference between OEM SRT wheels and reproductions
 
I am looking at putting on some SRT wheels on my summit. What is the difference between the OEM SRT five spoke wheel and the reproduction SRT wheel? Is there any reason to spend the extra $'s for the OEM or are they the same? I have the 5.7 so I am not worried about the wheel weight.

the oem's are forged and the replicas are cast

What is the difference between forged and cast? Weight, strength, etc.? Is having a forged wheel worth the extra $$$?

As you mentioned, weight, strength and cost. Now whether its worth it, that's up to you.
