I was curious who here opted for the $1,295 upgraded wheels over the Devil's Rim forged aluminum wheels.
More so, does anyone have any side by side comparison photos?

I'm wanting to see the difference in the finishes. It appears the Devil's wheel has a duller matte finish and the Carbon wheels are a bit more glossy.

Thanks.

They appear glossy in some pics and not others, odd

I would've thought the Devil's Rim would be the more expensive rim. Seems like a rip off considering both wheels retail for about the same price.
all options on these cars are way overpriced, but my guess is every time a option is selected it slows up the line costing them production.
the wheels seemed like a Bargen compared to 1500 for the carbon fiber dash trim. lol

at the time I was ordering my '09 R/T the optional 20" chrome clad wheels were $1,390 (and those are plastic "chrome" painted) - which I thought was a total ripoff.

Obviously, I didn't select that option.

Just In Time deliveries could care less what options are going on any particular vehicle down an assembly line. Nothing is scheduled until all parts are sequenced for production.

not true adding the shaker takes the car to a different destination to final install and it would certainly be easier to build cars with all the exact same wheels and tires and trims than swapping around parts constantly.

As I now recall.....I think you’re right, especially since wheels are the topic. I think I’ve read posts where the cars are driven or shipped over to the upfitters on some basic skinnies, then the bigger ones are later installed. I almost think I recall reading where the 11” wide wheels won’t go down the assembly line.

Hell I would've paid extra for a manual transmission. 😄
in the early years, you did...it was $995 for the (5.7) R/T and on a SRT8 it was $695 by 2011 the manual became standard equipment and the A5 (in production then) was extra cost
