I didn't spare much expense... went with Forgeline EX1 wheels, OEM diameter and width. I decided on a clearcoat graphite finish, which I believe compliments the silver paint of my TH really well. I wanted some contrast, but have tired a bit of the all black wheels. So I think that turned out nice.

However, I know the beast needs to be lowered. Kind of scared to do that, as I don't want to compromise the ride quality of my DD or have alignment issues. But I know from a "looks" standpoint, it would be awesome lowered on Eibachs.

Sorry for the lousy, rainy day pics, but the weather in N. Texas this past week has been awful.

yes, on my scale, the OEM black forgings showed 31lbs... these showed 24lbs. I don't know if either is correct, but I was just looking for the difference between them. :)

I saw that some people are experiencing wear on the inner wheel well, rubbing through n then through the fuel filler setup when lowered.

I have seen that too. Forgeline designed these wheels so that they sit a little further "out", so that should alleviate the potential issue we've seen.

I would lower it for sure, except I don't want to compromise the ride quality that FCA engineered into this thing. I guess worst case is I put them on, and then pull them back off.

I love all cars/trucks lowered but now that you have clean tires or theres dressing on them it looks better. I dont think you can go wrong either way your TH is just nice and clean
