I recently purchased a 2016 srt and just noticed that one of my hyperblack wheels is lighter in color than the others. Is that a known rare defect or do yall think its probably just a replica. Car only has 7k miles

All OEM wheels will have a series of letters & numbers in several series of stamping on the backside hub, including "mopar" so its really easy to check if it is a repop / replica wheel or not.
I have detected very, very slight differences in outside color between factory wheels that should be the same color. I believe this simply to be that wheels may come from different lots and a variation in the paint between lots or perhaps different manfacturing plants who make them for FCA. If you are not seeing this type of stamping, afaik , the wheel is not OEM and may have been replaced with a look a like or similar.
Here is an example of what OEM hub stampings should loook like.

This.

Work Play Drive had a mismatched Devil's Rim from the dealer. Likely the previous owner never noticed and never bothered to have the dealer fix it.
