Default Finally...

If any of you have been wondering why I have been laying low since first discussing the new Rims on my D. Well Its a long and really unexciting story.
First its starts off, I order a set of SRT 8 Reps with Falken ST05 tires all mounted and balanced with TPMS Sensors and shipped to my door.

They arrive and the only issue I SEE is that they sent ****ty blank center caps, but no worries I know that the factory MOPAR caps fit since these rims take all factory DODGE, JEEP or MOPAR caps. My local dealer had the MOPAR's and he let them go for $29.99. So I snap them in and head home to install my new Wheels.
I proceed to install them only to find out I need something other than STOCK lugnuts (they are too big) SO I run to Advance auto and pick up a set of Chrome lug nuts. I get all the Rims and tires mounted and I Take a ride. They feel real good but I notice that the TPMS aren't working but I am not alarmed as I heard that it takes a while. I drove for well over 100 miles still no good. I bring the truck to the mechanic that services all my company cars, he hooks it up to a computer and somehow gets them to read...BUT the Tire light is still on reading pressures(weird) I double check with the seller and he assures me he put in the correct TPMS...NOT he was suppposed to put in factory Dodge sensors and he put in these.

They are very good looking and they will light up pressures BUT the light stays on...NO GOOD. DON'T BUY THESE ORO-TEK Sensors! He sends me overnight 4 Dodge sensors and unbelievably the oro-tek sensors above start working like they are supposed to, so we think we are home free....NOT AGAIN The light returns after 30 miles. So This Morning at 7 am the mechanic swapped in the new DODGE sensors meant for our D's and we re-balance and re-install tires and wheels on truck.
We take a ride and within 10 mins of driving all is well No lights, pressures read and we are all happy.
So today I give her a good clean up and here it is...



They are 20X9 +35 backspacing (stocks are 20x8) 265/50/20 so stock size tires, They take on a whole new look on wider different rims. The tires don't stick out past wheel well or have any rubbing issues. Secondly I have GOBS of amounts of room behind and inside these wheels should I eventually install Real Brembo Brakes, They will fit perfect.
I also took the time to advance order the Brake Caliper covers at the GREAT price from AutoAnything.com with my discount code for past purchases $149.00 delivered.
The truck drives and handles better than ever.

STOCKWHEELSOLUTIONS.com
Corey is a good guy, he realized his tech made a mistake on not putting the correct sensors in and he ate the cost of 4 Dodge sensors, overnight shipping and even sent me a set of DODGE center caps.
He kept up on communication and he paid my mechanic for his time to reinstall new sensors and balance wheels and tires
