    Is the shot on the left lighting, or dirty, or do those look like RT rims that are gun metal grey vs. polished? I like the extra front air damn lip on there, but I still think the Chargers need that SRT8 hood to look "right". But I think I'm coming down off the fence on the Chargers, the more I see them, the better I'm liking the overall appearance

    The Daytona wheels are painted. I like their looks.

    Ah man, they look great in grey. I might have to powdercoat mine someday.

    Yea, where's the grille badge? Maybe they took it off so nobody would swipe it?

    Do my eyes deceive me or do I see Michelins?

    Thank god. Maybe they do listen to us...

    They might have taken it of, but I'm not sure how it's attached on to the actual grill.

    1) r/t is missing
    2) the wheels are not the ones speced for the daytona
    3) I think that is a pre-production car... owned by DC.... but just a guess....
    (daytona's have been produced for 1 week, and this one is already on the road with a plate?)

    The Daytona's have the same wheel as the R/T however, the inner portions of the wheel are painted black. The angle of the photo and the black insets are what is probably making them look dirty or greyish.

    for some of the questions.

    1) the rims are a gunmetal gray.(thay are awesome)
    2) the tires are michelins.(these look much better but i forgot to look at the sizes to make sure there the same size)
    3) i dont know why there was not a R/T badge.
    4) the hemi badge on the side is different then the badge on my charger.( mine is sitting right next to the daytona)
    5) i live 20 minutes from Detroit and right down the street from a Chrysler and Ford plant; so i see alot of cars months before they hit the market)
    6)i will answer any questions, if i have the answer.

    The Daytona and the Road and Track Performance Group Chargers come with 235 series Michelins with the blacked out wheels.

    Yes, yes, and yes.

    The painted wheels should just have the "insides" painted, not the actual surface.
