Question What To Do??? Heritage Or Cragar SS ????

I Have A 2009 Challenger Rt With Chrome Clad 20 Inch Rims. The Ones We Paid 1395.00 For When Car Was New. I Would Love To Have Heritage Wheels But Not Able To Afford Almost $600 A Wheel. I Am A Disabled Vet And Just Have Limited Income. But I Have Thought About Cragar SS Mags Which I Could Get For About Half The Money. Let Me Know What You Guys Think. Especially Guys That Have Either Wheels. I Have A Post Up In Classifieds For Wtb Heritage Wheels. But Also Would Consider Cragars. Are Cragar Wheels A Good Wheel? What About The Lip? Does A Cragar Ss Have As Large A Lip As Heritage Wheels? Thanks Guys. Let Me Know What You Think. And If You Know Where To Get The Best Price On Either Wheel.

I bought a new set of Heritage wheels from DodgeTruckParts.net. At that time they were $452 a wheel. They have gone up since then to $466 and that was only about 2 months ago. There was a guy that just sold a set of them that came off his car for $750 which was a steal. Look in the parts for sale section you might get lucky. I don't know if your going to drive your car as a daily driver but the Heritage wheels are polished forged aluminum wheels that are clear coated to help protect them from the elements where the Chrome Cragars will eventually pit and lose their luster over the years.

Just read the post on the guy who sold the Heritage Wheels for $750. He advertised them as in perfect condition but the guy who bought them said he wasn't pleased with their condition and said one was really bad.

Look at Tirerack.com selection for the Challenger. American Racing Torq Thrust Ms at $300 a piece might fit your liking and your budget.

When I first got my Charger, I put chrome 20" wheels on it. I ran them for a few weeks and decided I didn't like the looks of them. So I took them off and bought a set of SRT wheels off eBay. The chrome steel wheels (like Cragars) are MUCH heavier than the forgerd SRT wheels. I could tell an immediate difference in the off-the-line performance. It took a lot more power to get the heavy chrome wheels rolling. And vice versa, it takes more braking to get them stopped.

The moral of the story is that heavy chrome wheels will hurt your performance and handling. The Classic OEM wheels are forged, as are SRT wheels. You could also check out centerline capital group. They have great prices on closeout and overstock forged wheels.


2010 Challenger R/T Classic 6-speed - Plum Crazy Pearlcoat
EVIC and Super Track Pack are the only options
Mods: white Katzkin leather interior, Hurst shifter, Mopar WAI, Solo Performance exhaust, 180 stat, BT bling, custom painted engine and fuse box covers
It's all fun and games til the flying monkeys arrive

HI, SINCE YOU HAD BOTH, I WILL ASK YOU. IS THE LIP A LITTLE BIGGER ON THE HERITAGE WHEELS? DOES IT LOOK LIKE THE CRAGER SPOKES AND CENTER CAP STICK OUT PAST THE WHEEL LIP IF YOU ARE LOOKIING SIDEWAYS AT THE WHEEL? THANKS CHARLIE

If you're looking at the 610 series SS (20"), like me, they are forged aluminum with chrome plating. Not anywhere near as heavy as an old school steel Cragar SS. I got a quote from a local tire place today and may pull the trigger on them.

Crager Wheels Or Heritage

Is The Price Near $1000 A Set As I Have Found? I Have Seen Them Advertized On Internet For More Too. But I Dd Want Warn I Read That To Be Sure Get 5x115 Bolt Size And Not 5X1143 BECAUSE SOME DEALERS SAY THEY WILL FIT. I READ THAT YOU COULD GET VIBRATION ETC IF NOT RIGHT BOLT SIZE.

I have Cragars and really like them. They are chromed aluminum and not steel, and they balance up perfect. I paid around 165 a piece, mounted, balanced with lug nuts. The center cap sticks out, and the lip isn't all that big, I get tons of complements, and I wouldn't trade them for any other wheel. Maybe you can see the center cap and how far they stick out in these photos, I don't know.
