Yo long time no see dude! I just thought of you the other day on the way to a Sounds game. Drove by that mechanic's shop where you dropped the CL off that time. You still working on Saturdays? If not maybe I'll see you at Cars and Coffee some Sat morning.

Could never quite get used to the blacked out wheel look so I picked these up. Hope to get them on this weekend.

You're definitely right, they do, and I sort of like that. My previous wheels were from a Challenger Super Track Pack and they had a similar design, and they're similar to the modern Z-28 wheels, and there's a few other wheels on modern muscle cars and sedans that they look like, so the euro/import look has been making its way into the modern muscle car scene for a while. The real Demon wheels look amazing on a Demon, the replicas just never did it for me on my Charger. Plus a 10.5" wheel with a 305 on the rear was overkill for my horsepower level. Just really ended up killing performance. The Nitto NT555 G2s didn't grip that great anyway, so it just added a ton of unnecessary rotational weight to the back.

American Racing AR924 20x9 all around, only 24lbs a piece. They're cast but use flow forming, sort of like forging for the inner barrel. I'm keeping my 245/45-20 Nitto Motivos on the front and will be running a 275/40-20s in the rear with a 5mm spacer. I'm trying out Atturo AZ850s. They're super cheap but there's a ton of Challenger and Charger guys that run them and say they grip better than most of the big name tires. I figured it'd be worth trying them out for only a couple hundred bucks for the pair.

I like the new wheels! They are WAY better than the NASCAR knock-offs that you had on there...don't listen to Majofo, he knows nothing...even John Snow knows more than him.

Not apples to apples, but I really didn't care for the Nitto Motivo that were on our Flex when we bought it.
Michelin Pilot Sport AS3+ was a huge upgrade. Was going to put the same on the C300, but got Potenza RE980AS for almost $400 cheaper (installed), and have been happy with them so far, for an all-season tire.

NASCAR knock-offs ha ha. Thanks T! I'm done with wheels. Done. Seriously. Most likely. Maybe.

Interesting. I've had nothing but love for my Motivos. The tread life has been amazing and they perform great on my Charger. I swear the same tire on one car can be great and on another suck. Everyone raves about the Continental DWSs and I had them on my MS6 and they sucked. It just really depends on the application. Now the Nitto NT555 G2s I had in the back were so-so. For a 305 you'd think they'd grip like crazy but not the case. The Atturo AZ850s I put on the back so far have lived up to the hype. It's been super cold here and rainy so I can't test them for traction too much yet, but when I did get on them on some semi-dry pavement they definitely showed signs of very good grip. Time will tell though.

Thanks man. Yeah there's not any examples other than a newer body style red Charger I've seen these particular wheels on. I'm diggin them so far.

Thanks man! Yep I know the wheels. I've always really liked those. These have a bit less of a taper to the rim, so a little less of a "star" shape, but they're very similar. They also remind me of OEM G35 wheels.

I liked both sets of wheels, but I think the new set makes the car look a bit more updated.

Can't go wrong with either designs ...

Nice work!
