New Factory Reproduction Demon Replica Wheels

I am creating this thread only for those interested in the new Factory Reproduction Demon replica wheels and to show how they look on the Challenger.
I fully understand if you do not like or care for these wheels, but please do not leave negative comments as this thread was not created for that purpose.


I purchased (2) 20x10.5 (22mm) & (2) 20x9.5 (15mm) Factory Reproduction Demon replica wheels (style 73 satin black).
I will be running 275/40/20 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires in the front and 305/35/20 NT555R drag radials on

After I placed the order I was contacted by sales and they explained to me that there is a slight problem with the front 20x9.5" Demon Replica wheels.
The spoke of the 20x9.5" wheels will slightly rub the 6 piston Brembo brakes on the SRT's and Hellcats, so in order to run them, you will have to use a min. 3mm spacer.
Factory Reproduction just discovered the problem and they were letting everyone know this issue.
FR said they have contacted the fabricator and will hopefully have this issue resolved on the next batch.
I went ahead and told them to process the order as I am ok with running a 3mm spacer.

Here are the actual weights of the wheels I took after I received them:
20x9.5 front wheels weighed in at 28.8 lbs.
20x10.5 rear wheels weighed in at 30.6 lbs.
I weighed them several times in different positions/locations so these should be accurate weights.

Just received and unboxed:

Those look perfect on your car. Your car looks far better than a Demon ever will.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

Thanks.

I did not know if I would like the 5 spoke Demon style wheels, but I think they add more of a retro look than the Hellcat style wheels, which I was looking for.

Now the only problem is 3 of the 4 new TPMS I had installed will not sync up. The front drivers side works fine.
I tried letting out a lot of air then airing them back up, to try and trigger the TPMS, but that has not worked.

I kept my original OEM wheels and tires (with OEM TPMS) and put them in storage.

If I decide to sell the car, or I decide I'm tired of the Demon replicas, I can just slap the OEM wheels/tires back on the Hellcat.
