Funny you should post a photo of the Journey R/T. Just yesterday I made a screensaver of a photo of the wheel (from the NY auto show). Next I'll have to get a price on them from Dodge. I think they are 19's so new tires would be in order also.

I love the Journey wheels, just need to wait for the right set to take the Nestea plunge on. The ones that were on Ebay had a few scrapes/nick on them, that is just an invitation for the clear to peel or the aluminum to corrode. The "New" Journey wheels do look nice, just wish the Dodges were wrapped in the Yokohamas like the Fiats are. I'm not knocking the Khumos(on the Dodge), I have them on my Passat and they have been hands down the best meats that have been on there, but the Yoko's look like the sidewall is much nicer. I prefer a nice plain side wall, and not a HUGE NAME screaming at me. I'll just keep waiting, the other plus about the factory wheel interchange is, the OE wheels can take a punishment. Pennsylvania has hands down the WORST roads for pot holes. I taco'd 4 17" aftermarket wheels on my Passat on light hits at seperate times, so back to the OE 16" and if I hammer a pothole I know I'm coming out OK.
And yes they would look nice on the Rout'
It looks like the 19" wheels from the Journey R/T are going to sell for over $400 each. The mopar.com website has the wheels for sale under the stock parts area. Here's the link: Go to Journey OEM parts area, then to Wheels, and the Lancia and Journey R/T are listed, but no price yet, although another 19" wheel there is $434 (EDIT- the wheel for $434 is a chrome plated one. The painted ones are cheaper, but not by much).
The wheel hunt continues.

Here's an interesting looking wheel from a Caliber: http://www.wheelcollision.com/wccpix/0wcc2176.jpg

I was trying to post a picture of a 2011 Avenger Heat wheel. I'll post it when I come up with a good picture. It's an 18" wheel.

Those New 19x7 Journey Wheels would look HOT on the Routan!
It looks like they should even just bolt straight on.
The above pictured wheels can be ordered by your local Chrysler dealer.
1RU20XZAAA - Painted Silver - $453.00 in Canada
1RU20DD5AA - Machined face - $513.00 in Canada
I'm seriously considering it, because I haven't found a good looking set of after market wheels that will fit in a 19" size, and by the time I get after market wheels into Canada, the shipping KILLS!
Also found this link for them for only $229.95 each
I think they are knockoff though, the site doesn't say, and they don't seem to ship into Canada.
