I've been trying to find some wheel options for the Challenger that provide a classic look. If a guy is looking for classic but not looking for a 5 spoke Crager style wheel he isn't going to find much of anything. Anyway I got to thinking that maybe the steel 10 hole 17" wheels that came on Chargers and 300s might make a decent stand in for the classic Chrysler Rallye Wheel as it was a 10 hole design also. After looking all over I found a post on a forum where a guy had done this with his 72 Duster so I thought I'd post some pics to see what others thought. The holes are a different shape of course and the look isn't quite right but overall it's not too bad and I wouldn't mind seeing these on a modern Challenger to see what it looks like. What do you guys think?

Don’t think it’d pass in my eyes. Doesn’t look horribly bad, but it basically looks like some full size spare wheels painted argent.

Back in the day I always like the Magnum wheel style.

I really like those too! I like the modern ones Dodge made for the Rallye Package but they're hard to find and there could be more pocket around the spokes too if I'm being honest. Probably the best looking ones in this style for our cars are these Circle Racing Wheels but the wallet would really feel the pain and I'm not sure you can get them in 5 x 115mm rather than 5 x 4.5".

Classic Rallye Rims, but unfortunately they won't the current Challengers.

I agree on the Foose wheels. To me it seems crazy that no one makes rallyes or magnums specifically for the new Challengers that are faithful to the originals. You'd think it would be a no-brainer home run for someone to make. On the flip side if you want modern wheels with a bunch of spokes you have tons of options in chrome, black, aluminum etc. I'm just not a fan of that look, to me those wheels make our cars look like Hot Wheels. A lot of people must like them though they make tons of them.

You may have answered your own question, they make tons of them because people like them. Perhaps the market for the old school wheels is limited to a few people on Challenger forums

First off I agree with you, but I thought when I saw my 19 GT that the wheels did kind of do a "10 spoke tribute" to the original Magnums. You really need the right light and everything else, but ...

There is GT Magnums in 18" and 20"s that Fit Mustangs perfectly with Front and Real Calipers so I just think basically its a matter of making the Offset and Back Space to spec's of the Modern Wheels then they can use that space to mimic the curvature and nail the look
