    Anyone with a Gen5 car, can you look inside your wheel drum and see if it says Made in Taiwan on it?

    Thanks

    Couldn't they have at least ground that off so nobody found out about it?



    .........now for further comparison, where are the C7 wheels made?




    and is that why they are making the new Viper wheels lighter? ....-to reduce shipping costs?



    :rolleyes:

    It's not that it is something wrong, SRT/Dodge obviously must buy there for price/quality/weight etc.

    I think the G3/4 5 Spokes are/were made by Alcoa presumably in the US.

    I don't think any Viper wheel since those have been made state side but I am not sure.

    The 6 Spokes, Razors, H spokes, and new 5 Spoke Rattlers all look to made in Taiwan by SAI.

    The ACR SideWinder 1's and 2's, along with the race wheels on the new GTS'R's are made in Japan.

    No.....Alcoa were making them right along side of some Lamborghini wheels....the plant was about 20 minutes from me and I knew a few people that worked there. The 5spokes I'm talking about
