    Does anyone know if the mag wheels on the late modle Challenger or Charger will fit a 70 E body? Or does anyone know if there is an aftermarket mag that looks similar? I look at many sources but haven't been able to find anything similar. Thanks

    Look up American Racing,Torq Thrust 2 wheels,at Summit Racing. I think the new ones look like the old Torque Thrust 2 wheels..

    Yes, late model challenger/charger rims will fit on a 70 challenger as they are the same pattern 5x4 1/2. Might have clearance issues with the front. I have seen pictures with them on e bodies. They do look different on the older cars, depends on what your look your after. I like the old school rims myself. IMO I would go with what Adam suggested and check out the Torq thrust 2 rims!

    In my own opinion.. Why not keep them original to the 70s to me they look better... Wheel Vintiques 54 Series Magnum 500 Chrome Wheel. WP_20191012_005.jpg

    I currently have the 14 inch ralley wheels. I think everyone is right. Old school wheels may be the way to go. I like the Crager mags and may go that route. Thanks everyone.

    Why has someone disagreed with your original post? you are asking a question, I don't get it.

    I didn't say you did but if you have a look at the bottom of the original post of this thread somebody did.
