Thanks 6speedhemi! I gotta think about that one. I may wait a bit and see what else becomes available that looks cool. They sure look nice though!

These are the 20" polished aluminum Heritage/Vintage wheels that Dodge offers that are suppose to come stock on the R/T Classics in the Spring. I ve heard several different names for them from several different dealerships. Some even call them the 'Retro' wheels. I don't care for the chrome clad 20s that came stock on the car. I'm sure those rims will eventually peel. I don t like the way they look and they are too similar to the wheels that come on the Chargers. The new ones were a bit expensive but the right wheel and tire setup makes the car.....

nah they don't "peel" I've had the original chrome clad's since the '03 model year... The only bad thing about them is after a few years the gunk build up from the brakes starts to get really hard to clean off the rim... But like I said it's after a few years... I've had mine for just over 5 years now... I wouldn't say I clean my truck all the time but I keep it looking good... And for what they are there well worth it... Plus i know a few times I may have hit a curb or something and the chrome clad wheels don't chip like true chrome rims or dent, if you do dent one thats a new rim and true chrome isn't near as strong... For what they cost there worth it... After my experience with them... Honestly I'd be scared to pay 2500 bucks on some chrome rims and dent them or chip them... Just a thought from someone with experience... Trust me i've done just about everything you can think of in that thing... It's been a heck of a vehicle top to bottom...

I don't know if you folks noticed this, but according to Mopar, those wheels are forged, not cast, which along with the polished-and-clear-coated finish (not chromed), accounts for the price. In fact, they're quite a deal at any of the discounted prices you're talking about. Other than being just a hair narrower than the SRT wheels, they ought to be just as good. They may even be a bit lighter...

Has anyone seen any 20" tires with raised white lettering? The BF Goodrich Radial T/A don't seem to come that large, am I mistaken? I have the heritage wheels and they sure would look more retro with the above tires
