The Mojave's are around 200 each, and that is way too much. I really like the look of black wheels and you can't argue about the price or the rocks. I know it is a downgrade from what I have now, but the Alcoa's limit me a lot. I want something that I can put a bigger tire on, and something with less backspacing to fill out the wheel well better.

personally I think the alcoa are a 100% down grade because of the limiting factors of the wheel there pointless

well youre not gonna find many wheels that you REALLY like for much less than 150 new minus the black steelies. some advantages of the black steelies:cheap, durable because they wont crack as easily as an alloy, taco the lip a little and you can just pound it back into place with a hammer. try that with an alloy wheel. dd i mention that they are cheap?

I've gotten a few offers for them, so that's what has made me start looking around. I am not a bling guy and don't really want a chrome wheel, and I don't think chrome would look very good on my truck anyways. I like polished alum and black ones. The rocks came to mind first.

I don't think it's too bad. I just wipe off the brake dust between washing the truck.

So are you saying that just because I live in California we don't have severe weather and harsh road conditions that could potentially be hard on wheels? The only storm we've had so far this winter was something....let me tell you!
