MANY people run them. Do a little searching on here about them. I've never really looked into them at all so I can't give you any kind of a review on them.

They're steel wheels that are powdercoated(if you don't get chrome). And they're cheap and do their job and are very durable and strong. What else is there to say?

Being that they are steel, they are heavier. That's their only downfall. Other then that, though, I think they are awesome. I'm thinking of getting a set for the Chev for winter wheels when I get studded tires.
