nice hope you enjoy them but that is 10000x reason why i hate that rim.. plus the locking washers cut into the clear coat so they will begin to oxidize now.. f-ing stupid if you ask me they need to make the rim with out the bolts and it would be better

Looks great but should've gone with these. No bolts, and less of a pain. Eagle Alloys Series 135

DC'1's are a good looking wheel no doubt about it...but you better keep on up the maintenance. Clean them often. A friend of mine put the on his Ram about 8 months ago, and never cleans the damn things. They are oxidizing bad right at the bolts...looks awful.

take all the bolts out, paint clear nail polish on the lock washer and rim, hold the washer on the rim so it doesnt turn while you tighten the bolt, and then clear nail polish over it when you are done, that way they wont oxidize
