I decided to join the USW Forged Wheel family. They are building me the first set of EX 3.0's for my Challenger. They are 22x9 front and 22x10.5 rear. This is the first one they have put together. these are a 3 piece forged with the fasteners hidden on the back side.

Sweet, what off set did you go with for the rears?

These will be black n sublime to match my challenger when they are finished.
Not sure on the specs. They have all the measurements to make sure tuck. That is one benefit when you get a set built for you. You can do any offset you want.

Very nice. I was looking at their superstars but just can't spend that on wheel just yet. Can't wait to see them done.

This is one of my favorite Challengers yet, I love it when people go outside the box and give their car a unique touch that makes it stand out. I know this is not a daily driver but do you drive it much or did you build for more of a show car?

Thanks. I drive it. I'm up to 6600 miles. It came in last year on memorial day weekend. I parked it for the winter as here in Eastern Washington we can get a ton of snow. I started tearing it apart and doing things to get ready for paint. I did the suspension at Christmas time then in Jan we started fabricating the hood. Once that was done we tore a part the car for paint. We finished the first weekend of April for a show. I have driven it to Seattle for the Mopar show the beg of June. That was a 1000 mile weekend. It was even raining when I left my house. I build them to drive. I try not to do the rain thing to much but won't let it stand in the way if I have a trip.
I will be making a few more trips this summer. Next spring I will be driving it to SF8 in Irvine. That is a 3500 to 4k mile round trip.

Looks good! I like how USW sends pics of the wheels being built. Are you to any other cruises/shows this summer? I'm in Seattle, we should meet up!

Yes, I will be over there again this summer. Also a big group from all around the NW go to the Mopar nationals in July at woodburn. Just south of Portland.
