I'd suggest going with what you like the look of. The Avenger has kinda been a new favorite of mine.

Seriously, how are you going to drive it that you would honestly push the car beyond any spec that the Avenger would cover? Find one you like the look of, and drive happy.

What size tires are on your car, and what size are on the Avenger?

I'm in no condition to run the numbers, but if the outer diameter is the same, those are the same width. As long as the setback is similar, it will be fine.

The Avenger wheels are narrower, I believe someone is running them without problem, but I'd probably only run them in the summer. On the charger wheels, keep in mind that the tires are too big and you will need to replace the tires as an added cost.

IIRC this topic was brought up about a year ago, maybe 2, and it turned out that the hub bore for the Avenger wheels was smaller than the LH bore, so they won't fit. Same bolt pattern, but different hub bore

Yep the hub bore is too small. The guys that did get them on used dremels to bore them out. I'd see how much a machine shop would charge to do them.

Heh, then again, if they don't fit, NEVER MIND!

A machine shop charged me 20 each to do a set of steel wheels once for a truck. You could likely do it with a die grinder and a stone, or a Dremel with a stone.
