New to the forum....looking for feedback

Just picked this up for $1500 cash. Second owner 118k miles. Runs about 17mpg. AC is cold. Car has a weird black oil leak, but the oil on the dipstick is fresh. Not sure about that.

But anyway....

Looking for feedback on wheels. What looks good on these??

Also, the front bumper and nose of the hood is faded so I was thinking of ordering a mask for it. Anyone know how those would look?

I drove an intrepid back in the late 90's and liked it alot. I'm really enjoying this one. I heard it runs better on Champion Copper Plus spark plugs, so I'm going to check on that this weekend.

Any other valuable feedback or tips is appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks. Yes I've noticed that. I have seen a few pics of charger wheels on some. My stocks are "OK" but need to be recleared. I'm thinking of painting them. But I'm considering some center black with chrome lips. Haven't seen one like that yet.

I don't think you can beat factory wheels, you may consider factory wheels from other LH cars. The first gen snowflake wheels also look great.

Sweet First Gen! Yes Champions are great for these cars, as well are NGKs. If you can give me a location on the ground relative to the car I can help with that leak. Otherwise Welcome!

If you must change them, 300M special rims look pretty nifty! (do mind this Trep has Eibach Lowering springs on it)

I'm really impressed with the way this car drives. Never been a Dodge owner.

I'm an Old School lowrider at heart, so this is kind of different for me. But it is a good solid car.
