Best Place to Purchase OEM Wheel?

I’m looking to get a OEM wheel for my 2019 for a travel spare. I already have the tire. I see Detroit Wheel sells them but is there anywhere else other than a dealership?

Just for a spare? Try a junkyard. Unless you're totally car-show picky about it being perfect, you should be able to find something easily. Plenty of Chargers, 300s and even Grand Okies use the same 5x115 bolt pattern and offset.

If you're both picky and cheap, get one of those vinyl tire covers and no one but you will know it doesn't match.

Why do you want an expensive OEM wheel for a spare? Unless you plan to use the spare as part of your tire rotation, any aftermarket wheel with the same dimensions will do.

But with Brembo brakes it will make a suitable spare harder to find in a junkyard, and if it's got the 6-piston Brembos almost impossible.

I'd probably look on Ebay for a dinged up take off wheel, you should be able to find a usable one there fairly cheap.

You might have some luck with this company, although the wheels are not brand new.

Don't forget about Ebay either! :-) I purchased a whole set of (4) 18" OEM 5-spoke Challenger wheels, including center caps, for $400 shipped.

The place above wants $250 each (reconditioned) for the exact same wheel. The wheels I bought were used, but were in REALLY good condition. For something like a spare, I'm sure you can get a "not perfect" OEM wheel from Ebay for a LOT less than anywhere else. After all, it's only a spare - it doesn't need to be perfect.

Ditto on Ebay! I bought my tires off Ebay for a great price with free shipping....got my Borla cat-back exhaust with a discount on Ebay with free shipping etc...just pay attention to the seller ratings...you want to buy from a reputable company or people who have 100% positive feedback or close to it.

Got a used wheel for my '12 R/T Challenger off ebay several years back for $99.00, that included me having my good spare tire mounted/balanced on the wheel. I have 18" wheels so was a cinch to find it, and the vendor was local in L.A. area at the time so went and picked it up with no shipping costs.
Beats the heck out of the dreaded space saver spare........
