They were $227.00 each at Tire Rack. With my company discount I gave $187.00 each. Ended up being $791.00 with shipping and tax.

If black is what you want, they look good..
i do like the black chrome look with the inferno red but to be fair i have
also been considering the modern crager SS in 20s. once i get my new roof which was supposed to be done tomorrow ( damn snow storm 14" to 20" forecast tomorrow here) paid for im hoping to have the money for the wheel package saved back up by end of next month.

always loved the old classic look in wheels. Had Cragers on most of my chevy hotrods back in the day, even the good ol Slotted Dish wheels. will have to find some of the old pics of my hotrods and scan them for posting.

If u want the "oldstyle" Crager looks, get the Boss wheels, the Cragers for our cars are flat spoked and no lipped! Or the Heritage wheels! I had the Heritage polished wheels triple chrome plated( before they made the clad ones), and was at a show in May next to a car with Cragers. Spent the whole day telling folks" no they aren't Cragers", showed them the real Cragers next to me, everyone bent over to read the Crager center caps( what don't believe me?), and all agreeded they were ugly! Get the Boss, they have nice curved spokes, and the rim has a decent lip, the black spoke ones( and grey), look very hot on most colored cars, but I love my chrome on black, all JMHO( and bout 200 show spectaters)!Thought I'd add a pic of mine, cost; $150 -$180, per wheel to plate, got GOOD platers here!

WOW! those look great and if i had the dough i would go the same route.

been trying to get prices from other outfits for the same wheel package that
I listed. one place out in california guaranteed to beat any advertised price
but wrote to me and said they couldnt match that price especially with the
shipping at only $14.99.
so i guess their guarantee isnt worth crap

Dave
i had heard they were pretty reasonable for the sensors but i want to
wait and see what this company can come up with, i would prefer the sensors be installed when the package ships so it will be a direct bolt on and make it easier to sell my stock 17" wheels and tires.

Is that what it costs to chrome wheels.????

I had been contemplating getting my wheels chromed, but at that price,, no..



I need more chrome on my Challenger..
.

I have noticed on the old Challengers that they have chrome wheel well moldings. along with chrome window moldings too, but I guess that would be pushing it a little too far. :whistle:

the chrome around the wheel wells i believe was an option i just cant remember what the code was but looking at our cars i think some nice stainless trim around the openings would set certain colors off.
