    saw this on Ebay. Don't know anything about RW, but doesn't seem to bad of a deal. Anyone think of any reason I shouldn't pull the trigger and get these? IMG_0053.PNG

    My opinion:

    Go directly through Factory Reproductions. You'll get the better 20x9.5 wheel that you can run square, or you can do a staggered setup with 20x9.5 and 20x10.5.

    If you look at the replicas you have above, you'll notice the spokes kind of taper out once they get near the edges. The OEM wheels do not do that, nor do the ones from FR who I mentioned above.

    Email Bruce, Bruce@factoryreproductions.com. Tell him I sent you.

    I'd pass on those and do what is suggested above. Go to a reputable source when it comes to dropping a lot of coin.

    I went on their website, but didn't see anything like what I posted, but I did shoot Bruce and email to see what he has similar to this.

    Those you posted are Matte Black Hellcat Reps. Factory Reproductions has them in the same color, or Bronze ( which I have, which would look awesome on that Midnight Blue), and then I think Black Chrome and Chrome.

    see... I knew I was blind. Thanks for the link. Can I assume that my stock tires fit on this or am I having to move up to 275s?

    Also - I don't know anything about the offset required.

    You could run 245/45 on them, but I would suggest going to 275/40. So many benefits going up to that size. If you don't need a true all season tire, you can go with Atturo AZ850 for pretty cheap, like $500 for a set of 4.

    Good info. I noticed when I fill out the order, the only option for offset is Plus 15. I'm assuming that's correct for my car. I'm thinking of keeping my 245s until I burn them off :p. then I'll move up in size.

    Yup, 20x9.5 +15 is correct.

    Sell your stock tires for $200, and get the Atturos for $500. You'll be happy you did, and you won't have to pay mount an balance 2 times.

    If you are going to order a set, call them directly or email Bruce. There is a forum discount for the Scat Pack Forums.

    For what it's worth...

    OEM SRT wheels = 18.5mm offset

    Scat Pack wheels Std OEM = 25.5mm
    Optional WRT = 18 or 18.5 (?)

    Factory Reproduction: For 9.5" wheel = 15mm

    RW Replicas(ebay special??) = 20mm (9" wheel)

    They all work. The Factory Repros would stick out a little bit further.

    What would be the max tire size, without compromising road contact, for the replica 20x10.5 rims?

    It might be neat to have a spare set for the rear. I currently have the dynamics package rims that are at 20x9.5.

    Pretty sure 315 is max, without rubbing.

    315 is within the recommended tire width range for a 10.5" wheel.

    As far as rubbing, apparently some say they had to alter the plastic wheel lining a bit and some say no problem at all. I believe that's why many have chosen to go to 305's. It all depends on the specific car and of course the wheel offset. Those Factory Reproduction 10.5" wheels have a 25mm offset.

    I had a loaned set of 305's on 10.5" wheels with 25mm offset with no rubbing on my car. I think if they were 315's they may have just barely touched(or not) that plastic wheel well liner, by the looks of it. But it wouldn't take much to prevent it from rubbing if it did.

    Thanks. Wheels should arrive in a couple days... the tires awhile longer. (Can't wait). I'll post some pics soon.
