I just got back from about a 10 mile drive so can't really comment to much. Plus I ran into tons of traffic every where I went. Even if it didn't actually do anything in my mind it seems to have. Throttle response seems a bit better. Its only got 500 miles on it so don't even really have to much to compare anyways. Its an Airaid only $180 from Amazon, but I really like the way its got a heat shield around it & even a rubber strip around the top that supposedly seals on the hood.

They seem very similar to the stock wheels. How come you are thinking about switching them out? Maybe just get the stockers powdercoated matte black and save some dough. I do really like those wheels though FYI

Re: My new 2012 Super Bee

Not really too similar at least IMO. Plus the superbee gets cast wheels & not the forged wheels like the regular charger SRT. They are really thick & chunky, not sure on the weight of them but these even still being cast have to weigh a lot less. Wanting to free up some of that weight on the corners. Here's the stock for comparison. Plus I can get these in 10.5" for the rear instead of the stock 9", need to get some traction lol. I don't have as bad a problem as you John with the gt500 but it still sucks.

I like them but they just don't "pop" to me.

First time seeing this so congrats on the new ride! What about some Gen 1 300 SRT wheels on there with a Matte finish? I'm just a fan of those wheels so I thought I would throw it out there haha. Good luck and enjoy!

Yeah I would probably have to see them in person, I will take your word for it. Ah ok I wasn't aware the wheels were cast, I bet they are heavy haha. Wow the rears are only 9"?! Wow that's skinny. The rears on my Shelby are 9.5" and I am already debating getting them widened to 10.5 so I can run 315-335's . Yeah traction is no fun lol
