My black car needs a bright finished wheel (IMO), but I love(d) my Boss 338.

Solution- I bought some 20x8.5 and 20x10 Black (which would also have looked FANTASTIC) and sent them away to be PVD'd. I would like chrome, but this was far cheaper without all the headaches of Chrome. No pitting or peeling!

Pictures coming when they're on the car.

That sounds like a great idea! Can't wait to see them. I've been debating whether to get chrome or black 338's for my Torred. Sounds like I can go with the cheaper black ones (since I'm leaning towards black) and if I'm not happy or want a change I can do the same thing you did.

So how much is it gonna cost you if you don't mind me asking...

Resize and you can see how PVD looks rather orange-peel. I don't care, they look GREAT and no pitting or peeling!!

Possibly...It was for me. It depends on the wheels, shipping, cost of the PVD, etc..
Send a PM for details.

yep, the whole thing looks like chrome. Gotta buy tires. I'd like to hold out until I can get a set of Continental Conti-trac DWS, but they're on eternal back-order.

Well I got them on...too bad the weather sucks. Oh well, at least they won't be ruined. :) I went to a tire store and found a guy willing to spend some time on the phone and found some NEW 295/40-20 and 245/45-20 Continental DWS for me. I told him to get 'em before he even quoted price. BTW...Don't do that!

The no pitting or peeling is really great especially if your vehicle is exposed to salt in the winter. Just be careful to avoid getting curb rash.

Very nice! How do those tires work in the light snow? I am considering a set. I don't intend on driving the Challenger in the snow, but you never know when you get caught up in some unexpectedly.
