Post pics up of the wheels when you get them installed please.
Are yours chromed factory wheels? If so, did you have them done or did you buy them like I'm doing? They look great!Post pics up of the wheels when you get them installed please.
Oh I saw those somewhere online. I was really pissed they didn't have them to fit the 20" wheels. Indeed they look just like chrome wheels, at a fraction of the price i'm sure. Great look on that car. Hope our car looks that good with the new wheels.No they are wheel skins. They fit the factory wheels like a glove. I've had them almost a year now and they have held up great, still like new.

These are blank chrome caps with vinyl bowties, but are the bowties you are talking about nicer? They really do look better in person, you can't really tell they are decals unless you're down there cleaning them. I'll post some pix on the car.You can buy "blank" chrome center caps (they aren't cheap - about $50 for a set of 4) and then buy and apply vinyl bowtie emblems to the blank chrome center caps. I did exactly that with the charger wheels on my 8th gen (instead of having "Dodge" chome center caps!). There is a company (can't remember the name off-hand) that makes blank chrome center caps for a bunch of different wheels.
If interested, let me know and I'll look up the details and take pictures of mine so you can see what the end result looks like. I went with black 'outline' bowtiw emblems, but you can also get solid black bowtie emblems.

I have the same car except its a 2015, I get vibration on the highway. I figured I had a bent wheel but after reading this thread I'm wondering if it's because of the bigger wheels?Hello all and happy Sunday!
Thought I would pop back in to see if there has been any activity about the noisy rough tires. Factory 20" wheel package with the stock Bridgestones. I am at a dilemma trying to decide whether I want to risk spending a lot of money for the same size tire I in a different brand, or putting smaller rims and new tires. Seems like this car comes with 17s, 18s and the 20s. My BIL has a Charger with 245/45/20 tires(mine are 245/40/20). Parked side by side it's obvious he has more rubber between the rim and tread. I physically measured his tires against my wheel wells and I'm afraid it might be a problem with clearance. Was wondering if anyone has tried this size or any other? I know a fella here changed his to Pirelli and liked them better. Been thinking also of ditching these wheels and tires and buying a refurbished set of LTZ wheels in a smaller size. I love the midnight edition wheels but they are over double the price. I'm just tired of the rough ride and noise. Less concerned about the handling. Figure I should be able to Craigslist these 20s just turned 28k mostly Highway miles. Any suggestions or stories most appreciated.
PS, anyone know how much of a big deal it is to have the car re-progammed to a different tire size?
