What a blast! I'm still finding little features in the interior. Really cool!
Just wondering, I didn't realize the chrome on the rims is actually a plated plastic cover. Anyone know how these hold up after a couple of nasty winters up north here?
Smitty I have just one thing to say... GORGEOUS!!!
I really like the orange R/T. To me it looks like a custom candy color. The red & the blue do too but I think because the orange is less common it makes a nice statement.
On the wheels I've been told this. Over the years the Dodge & Chrysler cars seemed to have a lot of problems with wheel chrome. Chipping, peeling stuff like that.
From what I've been told Mopar kind of found their way around this problem by developing excellent quatity "chrome clad" wheels... like on your R/T. The sales pitch on them is they're an all season wheel less affected by weather & road chemicals than real chrome plated wheels and they actually repel brake dust rather than attract it.
Now that's the sales pitch so you have to consider the source I guess but with their real chrome wheels not known for durability and the R/T's chrome clads looking sweet... I think you're covered! One thing to be careful of though DON'T CURB YOUR WHEELS! The very edge is just alloy clear coated. If you scrape 'em up that edge will oxidize and get a white crusty build up. But hey... who's gonna curb a new R/T anyway? Wax 'em up good and show 'em off!!!
P.S. I liked 'em well enough to track down a set for my SXT...
