Dodge Challenger Narrowbody Wheel Performance

Challengers are big cars with loads of horsepower, but most models came with relatively narrow wheels which really limited their capabilities on the street and track. If you want to extract even more performance from your car, a lightweight chassis specific set of wider wheels and tires will make a world of difference. We created Forged wheels such as the Apex VS-5RS allowing owners to greatly increase performance by simply bolting on a new pair of shoes. Find out what fitment is best for your application in our Dodge Challenger Narrowbody Wheel & Tire Fitment Guide.

A Brief History of the 2008-2023 Dodge Challenger

Is that a cop?? Outfit your car with a set of our Dodge Challenger narrowbody wheels to help other enthusiasts ensure you’re not an officer of the law. Beginning in 2008, the Dodge Brothers brought back one of their historic nameplates, the Challenger. It featured the most retro vibes of all the modern muscle cars found in the United States, with plenty of power to back up its chiseled good looks. Saddled with large fender wells, these cars fit big wheels and tires with ease.

If you find it difficult to keep up with all of the different Challenger models available, you’re not alone. Dodge did a great job listening to public demand over the years, creating many versions to suit everyone's preferences. SXT models featured an efficient Pentastar V6 making over 300 horsepower. Most R/T models see a 5.7L V8 shoved under the hood, making up to 375 horsepower. That thing got a Hemi? It sure does. Scat Pack and non-supercharged SRT models are blessed with the lovely 6.4L V8, producing up to 485 horsepower. SRT Hellcats got a rocking 6.2L supercharged Hemi, making anywhere from 707 tire roasting ponies up to an eye-watering 797 hp from the Hellcat Redeye. Both manual and automatic transmissions are available in almost every model, but the start of the show is that 8 speed ZF auto. Its lightning quick shifts ensure you get the most of the car on every occasion.

What Makes it a Fun Car

Known for their spacious interiors and comfortable ride, the two door Challenger is a great vehicle to live with every day. Optional Brembo brakes, big V8 power, and aggressive looks blend together to create what many consider the perfect cruiser. Whether it’s the naturally aspirated R/T or the supercharged SRT Hellcat, they all provide a great blend of comfort and tire-shredding potential. Grab a set of our Apex Challenger Narrowbody wheels today to give your ride a custom look. We cannot promise longer tire life, however.

The Scat Pack is a fan favorite for many reasons. Journalist Jake Stumph got his hands on one at the drag strip, right where it belongs: 2019 Dodge Challenger RT Scat Pack 1320 First Drive Review.

VS-5RS Features


10K Tons of Pressure

Our new forgings weigh as much as 120 pounds before machining. To form such a thick blank we require special equipment capable of 10,000 metric tons of pressure. This extreme pressure increases the strength of the aluminum by eliminating porosity and improving the grain structure.

True Motorsport Blanks

Many companies use 3rd-party blanks intended for non-motorsport wheels which can severely limit sizes, concavity, spoke design, and critical brake clearance. We designed our very own blank profiles from scratch to give us total control over the final product.

Side-Milled Spokes

To be as light as possible the VS-5RS features extra-deep, side-milled spokes. Any excess material that doesn’t add strength is carved out using a precision CNC ball cutter. Side-milling is often deemed cost-prohibitive by others, but for true performance without compromise we believe it's essential.

A Stronger Lightweight Wheel

Our forged Sprint™ wheels are lightweight without the strength compromises found on typical lightweight wheels. First, we carved out as much material as possible, then we purposefully added one pound back to reinforce critical areas, creating a stronger inner lip and a higher load rating.² What’s the point of a lightweight wheel if it’s fragile?

Typical Forged Wheels 1521
APEX Flow Formed 1550
APEX Forged Sprint™ Line 1600

Weight Optimized

We conducted extensive Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to reinforce high-stress areas and to remove material where it didn’t improve strength. The result is a wheel that is exceptionally light without the strength compromises found on typical lightweight wheels.²

Independently Tested

We don't rely solely on computer simulations or unverifiable in-house testing. We believe independent testing is critical to protect consumers in this unregulated industry. We chose STL, an independent lab in Ohio, to test our Sprint™ wheels far above JWL standards, including increases in testing duration, impact drop height, and total load.

Tougher Inner Lip

Introducing the Sprint™ spec inner lip, with a unique channel profile that makes it even stronger than our previous designs. So even though our Sprint™ wheels are pounds lighter than comparable flow formed wheels, the inner lip is stronger.

Big Brake Clearance

From day one, APEX has been on a mission to build wheels that clear big brakes. Our new forged wheels are the product of everything we’ve developed over the past 10+ years, including an innovative high-clearance barrel design and vehicle-specific spoke profiles.

Deeper Concavity

Our new forgings were redesigned to create extra deep, concave spoke profiles. Their new shape allows us to make any profile, from flat to deep and everything in between. Each one is optimized for a specific application using 3D laser scans of factory and aftermarket brake kits.

Paintless Knurled Bead

Whether it's a day at the track or months of street driving, repeated hard braking and acceleration can make a tire slip along the bead seat and go out of balance, causing vibration. Knurled beads help, but are less effective when painted over. Our forged line features unpainted knurled beads that stay sharp and maximize grip.

Built for Impact Sockets

Track wheels need track tools. Don’t settle for wheels that require undersized tuner lugs or thin walled sockets. All APEX wheels accommodate over-sized race lugs and impact sockets to make swapping wheels lightning fast.


Socket Diameter Clearance

Laser-Engraved Specs

As track enthusiasts ourselves, we know how frustrating it is to try to locate and decipher wheel specs that have been hastily hammered into the rim or become unreadable over time. With our new Sprint™ wheels, we chose to invest a little extra and laser-engrave the specs on the barrel, in plain sight, making them easy to find and read. (You’re welcome.)

Additional Features

Hub Centric

All VS-5RS wheels are purpose built for select vehicle applications. Very few applications require centering rings.

Center Caps

All APEX wheels come with our gloss black cap included that is interchangeable with the OE cap. We also offer additional colors for select fitments.

Wheel Hardware

APEX wheels can be used with all OEM mounting hardware, proper aftermarket hardware and most wheel spacers. Wheel locks and stud conversion kits also work perfectly.


All APEX wheels accept OEM and aftermarket Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors and standard fit valve stems. If you don’t have sensors, then select from our metal stems available in multiple finishes.

VS-5RS Warranty

A Wheel You Can Depend On

All Apex Wheels come with a lifetime structural warranty against defects in workmanship and materials, plus a 1 year finish warranty. Exchanges are fast, easy, and hassle-free.

Accidental Damage

Curb rash or pothole damage on the street? Make an oopsie at the track? We’ve all been there. APEX is proud to offer 50% off replacement wheels, no matter the damage.
