i personally wasn't planning on doing chrome wheels, but a deal i COULDN'T pass up fell into my lap and...well....here ya go!
Great choice on the wheels! I've looked at so many websites, forums, seen tons of pics of different wheels, and I feel like there are only a few wheels that look right on a Challenger. I really like the style of the heritage wheels for the classic r/t & yours look just like them. I like how you picked out 22" wheels too. If you look up the accessorized Mopar r/t you'll notice how similar your wheels are. Only problem is the heritage wheel is only 20", they come in polished aluminum, which isn't as cool as chrome, and they have that senseless ram head on the caps, which I don't think look right. You made all the right choices on your wheels, and probably didn't spend around $500 per wheel, which is nuts in my opinion.
Have you considered an Eibach suspension to lower the profile on your SE? I have talked to a couple mechanics on it, and have done some research on the web, and it's a pretty cost effective way to get better performance on the turns at high speeds with wheels like you got. The car would look a bit more sinister too. Just an option I would look into.
Great looking wheels dude. I might go with the exact same model you did. Not to mention you got 22x9's. Nice.
to Deuce: the Go-Wing was the first thing i added to my car....i've always loved them and i made the dealer throw it in with the sale. i purposely left it flat black like the gen-1 Challengers and i think it contrasts the titanium well. as for what's next, probably an Eibach drop, Razors Edge strut brace, some script badges on the fenders, SRT front fascia, a CAI, exhaust....i could go on forever.
to CharlesAndPatricia: thanks for the compliments and kind words. i firmly believe that wheels make the car. i've seen a lot of gorgeous cars turn to hideous eyesores by a poor wheel choice. the Cragar SS is a wheel that'll never go out of style, and 22" i think is about as big as you can go on the LX/LC cars without looking atrocious. as for what i paid, well....the previous owner of the wheels is a customer of mine and he's glad they have a good home. they weren't free, but a few people might puke if they found out what i paid for them.
