Default Got my 20" SRT's on today....

Well my wheels came in today so I mounted them up at work. Everything went real smooth and I am very impressed with the quality of the finish and the over all buying experience from "eastcossttires" on Ebay. They were $785 shipped to my door in California from South Carolina within a week. I like it when orders have no issues! I just have to get rid of the dumb wheel lock...... that thing is HUGE and not recessed into the wheel as much as the stock ones so it looks terrible!

Well I like the look. Made the truck look a little meaner and definitely set it apart from a stock one. I'll be itching to black out the headlights now as I think that will really set it off. Overall very pleased to have been able to retain my factory sized tires and ride quality and still get a custom look with a stylish wheel for very reasonable money IMO.

Now I've got to sell my stocks to offset the cost, shouldn't be to hard.

Here's a few pics. I hope to get her cleaned up and take some nice photos soon.







What do you guys think???

20x9, so one inch wider than the stock wheel. They "look" bigger though in black since they just flow into the black tire. The overall diameter using the stock sized tire is actually a bit bigger than what most guys run on the 22" wheel from what I could gather. So without really lowering the truck (I do have a 2" level in the rear) , and wanting to retain good soft ride quality provided by having a lot of sidewall to the tire this is a good option I think.

I know it would look great lowered, but I gotta keep it practical for towing my Jeep on occasion down some pretty beat up roads. I do have the McG rear drop springs in it, so I'm gonna just have to live with the current stance. It's not horrible, just a compromise.

Looks real good, man! I bought the same exact style (but the 22" version) from east coast tire. I'm glad to hear your order went smooth, as mine did not. It took about 2 weeks to get mine, and I'm in Florida! How's the ride, did they balance well? If your not going to lower, then how about a slightly taller tire to fill the wheel well when the originals go? My truck is gray also, and the black on gray looks sick, IMO! I agree about the headlights, I'll be doing the same! Sorry to ramble, anyways good choice!

Thanks! I'm surprised East Coast botched your order, they seemed to be very organized. I guess it's hit and miss with all these e-tailers though.

The wheels balanced out fine. I work in the tire sales industry so I mounted and balanced them myself. The wheels were very true with less run out than I normally see on low end aftermarket wheels (cast). I'm not going to mess with tire size, the 33" overall diameter of the stock 275/60r20 is already quite big! Post up some pics of yours, I would love to see one the same color on the 22's!
