    Ya they will work..they even sale reproductions of other LX model SRT wheels for our cars...Check out Factory Reproductions, or some of our other venders for their line up... Some one will chime in eventually but remember its your baby in the end...

    As long as you're not tryin to pass it off as a SRT, I'd say go for it. I'd like to get a set for my V6, they're great lookin wheels. Last week, I saw a black RT Charger with SRT Chally wheels. The RT badge was still on the trunk lid so it didn't bother me. Not like the red V6 Charger I saw with SRT badges, Super Bee vinyl, single exhaust and 17" hubcaps. What a clown.
    Just lower it.

    I have Challenger SRT wheels on two of my 05 Magnum R/Ts, but you must use a 3mm spacer on just the front two wheels. Hey... I love the look!

    You need the 3mm spacers (from BT - a vendor at LXforums) on the front only, if you go with stock SRT rims, the repro's don't need the 3mm spacers.

    I went with the Magnum SRT rims on my RT with Nitto 420 tires, in 255x45x20 size.

    Dont be scared off by the 3 mill spacers. Once you have the factory wheels off then just slide the spacer onto the front hub before installing the SRT8 wheels. Thats all you do. Just slide it on.

    To me it would depend on how much tread life is left on the tire. I personally wont use SRT rims. thats just my personal preference. The box of crayons came with different colors for this reason. Its not that I dont like them. I just wouldnt use them unless I was in a heavy snow area and needed a winter set of rims. As for which wheel looks better, again comes to personal preference. I never mod to other peoples taste. I will as opinions when I am done, But it is my creation, not the forums. Thats what makes everyones car unique. But, to throw in my 2 cents, I prefer the 300SRT8 wheels vs the rest.

    thats a good price, you might point out the curbage on the lips and maybe repair it, but I'd run them ...gloss black face and flat pockets, or color matched....what color car you got?
    I love all the SRT wheels and more in black, ...and now after this thread, mag SRTs are my favorite again
