    I found this photo of a Challenger owner that went totally "old school" with his wheels.

    I was never a fan of steelies in the 60s/70s. I thought they looked cheap and the owner couldn't afford nice mags. However, I guess some will still think they're cool.

    ok, well 17's will fit as I ran 17 in drag radials on mine at the strip. good way to fill up those wheel wells is with a bigger tire for sure.

    That's a unique look for a late model Challenger, not many out there with this wheel setup. I'd add either a thin red pinstripe to the outer part of the wheel or add trim rings - just to break up the black a little more.

    Dog dishes remind me too much of police cars.

    I've got 3 1/2" header clearance with 22" wheels. Not sure 17" wheels are a viable option for many.

    I agree. Except now the police cars are chargers and you don’t even know it’s a cop until they’re right next ya’..
    All blacked out And you’re checking the car out - and the office rolls down the window-
    and asks you to slow down on the road You were driving on...
