We should have our first set built in a little over a month. 20x9.5 in front, 20x10.5 in rear. We plan to offer them with a tire we find has excellent traction for both handling and acceleration: Michelin Pilot Sport 2. We will run with 255's in front and 285's in rear.

SRT used the PS2's on their One Lap car this year.

Anyway, we would welcome your comments and questions on our wheel upgrade package for the SRT8. Thanks.

PS - the pic attached is for the same design of wheel that we just installed on our Ram SRT10 Twin Turbo.

Stang - we are a new supporting vendor to the forum. We will announce some sort of group buy program at some point soon. But since we are at least 6 weeks out before we will have any inventory to sell, all we are willing to do at this point is to take orders with no deposits and have a waiting list.

If anyone is interested in placing an order then please stay tuned for the group buy post with pricing, etc. Again, we want to be very up front on delivery times, especially with any custom centers, etc. Pricing and details to come soon.

Thanks for your interest.

Great looking wheel. How much weight savings as compared to the stock rim? Will "shiny" be the only available finish?

Make em' stylin'

John,

I would welcome a wider wheel size but, the one you have looks kind of bland...please introduce a cutting edge style the will make this car just stand out....The one you have here is too old school. It doesn't make the car stand out enough. That's not to say it has to be too over the top, but it must be light weight and really enhance and already aggressiv looking car.......I really like some of the Giovanni, GfG or HRE Wheel designs.

Good Luck!

Well designed cars will speak for themselves, with the wheel flowing naturally with the lines of the car, putting wheels that stand out would detract from the overall vehicle.

I'm with Rt4

The stock SRT-8 wheels actually work and look great. I understand getting rid of the stock 'C's but I'm keppin' these as is. I'm only adding things under the hood (cool air intake) and inside the car (DVD Headrests.)

maybe a cat back when Magnaflow gets their act together with production.

Question: The rubber on the OneLap car had an overall outside diameter 2 inches smaller than stock. Erich told me they didn't make the PS2's in the same outside diameter. The effect was that the car sat one inch lower, but that the tire didn't fill the wheel well as nicely.

Is the PS2 going to be available in the larger outside diameter to match our stock configuration, or are you planning on using the exact same size Erich used on the OneLap car?

I agree with both you and rt4. I can’t imagine getting rid of these awesome wheels. There isn’t much SRT badging on these vehicles as it is. Those wheels just say it all and look great- but to each his/her own. :D

Wheels look good, but

I am sure there are plenty of srt8 owners out there that would change out the rims. If I were to even consider it, it would have to be for the same wheel that is on the vehicle without the SRT badge-I am one of those guys that really doesn't want peple to know what is really under the hood.

Besides loving the current wheel/tire package, my wife would kill me if I went out and dropped a few grand to change the wheels.

Good luck, let us know if you come up with the stock wheels without the SRT badging, maybe I could convince the wife. Then again, I'll bet you'll make more money on other wheels.

I think Erich had 295 PS2's on the car. They were shorter than stock that is for sure.

Our tire package is very close to the stock tire height. So there should not be any issue of a gap between the top of the tire and the fender. Thanks for asking.
