    Total honor to be part of Hellcat owners club. With that, I have something I HAVE to change about my HC. I cannot stand the matte black wheels against the red paint. I have never been a fan of that look - it looks like "my hubcaps fell off", and I think it looks shabby. Its so hard to find good looking rims for a red car, not to mention a powerhouse like this ride. I'd like to go with a mixture of black and "milled" aluminium (not shiney chrome) so that I can match the stock hellcat badge. Here is the question...

    I see so many rim companies out there, I have no idea who to choose, or what to watch out for.

    If I wanted a wider rim for wider tires, how wide can I go?

    I have to pick out tires too...as we all know, the stock tires dont grab. Mickies?

    And I would like to give the car a "raked" look. Higher in the back, so it has a slight drag racer look to it. But I dont want to mess with the suspension. Would I get a taller rim, or would I get a taller tire to accomplish that?

    Any help that you have will be greatly appreciated.

    I just finished a year of looking, and a few speed bumps in getting aftermarket wheels... what is your budget? That is the first question. If you are looking to spend a large amount, I would say US Mag... they have some beautiful wheels, but at a premium price... do you want an old school wheel or a modern looking wheel?

    Another place with a wide selection...

    Thanks man, budget isnt really an issue. I think modern is the way to go. I have spent hours and hours on carid, lol. I have some wheels narrowed down, but I really dont know what specs I should be looking for (in the event that I should upgrade). So I am afraid to pull the trigger.

    They make replicas of the factory rims in black with a machined face. I think that may be the look you are after. I personally have not seen any wheels I like better than the stock wheels as far as design.

    There was/is some black chrome ( not black at all ) ones on here for sale off a SRT that the bloke swapped out for black wheels I think .
    I really like them and one of the reasons I picked the SRT over a scat . I'm running 295 on the back so you can get a pretty decent tire on .
    Remember the factory wheels are an expensive piece of equipment and of a higher quality than most wheels out there .
    Here is a pic of my car with them on and with my winter ( black ) wheels on .

    if you like the look of your wheels and the only issue is the color why don't you get those powercoated to the color you want?
