WTT: Alcoas for MT Classics (NC)

Like most of up here, we are never satisfied...lol. I have been thinking about possibly trading my Alcoas for some polished 15X8 MT Classic IIs or the equivilent (Eagles, Pacer, etc...). I know everybody and their brother has them, but I have always loved them. Or if you have another wheel, I may be interested just let me know. My wheels are in great shape so I expect the ones you want to trade to be as well.

With that being said, is ther anyone locally (NC) that might be interested? The Alcoas are in GREAT shape. They are 15X7s for those of you that don't know. They came off of a 2001 Level II. I have cleaned them up (brakedust was awful) and waxed them. All the centercaps are mint.

I like both, but the Alcoa's are easier to keep clean.

Keep the Alcoas IMO. You don't plan on lifting do you?

Then I'd keep it like it is. It has a nice stock/clean look to it. Nice stance, nice look, and anything else that's nice haha. I like them so my vote is to keep them and change something else on the truck instead.

I'd either keep it, or go with 10" wheels with a body lift.

I would go for the classic II's. The brushed alcoaa's just seem kinda dull and boring for me. With the way you keep your truck clean, Im sure you'll have no problem keeping polished wheels shiny and looking good.
