Bought the Eagle Alloys

Well I picked up the Eagle Alloys yesterday morning. I am pretty happy considering the price. Two of the rims were a display rim but have never been run on a vehicle just had tires mounted on them in the store. They are definately in need of a good polish so that is what im doing at the moment. Here is a pic of two of the rims already polished. One using Bluemagic and the other Mothers Mag/Chrome/Aluminum Polish. Mothers kicked bluemagics *** in half the time. Left is Blue/Right Mothers.



I plan to put the rims on the truck at the end of Feb. I am getting antsy though so it may be sooner.

i can't really tell the difference between the two wheels, but... if you say one is better than the other, then i guess it's my eyes, lol.

Lol maybe I am imagining it then.. haha.. no the mothers did a better job imho...

Well hopefully i can use the original lugs but i am going to buy a set of locking nuts unless i get a whole new set that go on with a key... we shall see how much i wanna spend when im there.

You can use the stock center caps, but center cps are only like $10 a piece and lugnuts a re about $1 a piece. Save the money and make em look good.

I'm curious, how are they holding up? Considering you haven't cleaned them.. do they have any rust? Any oxidation from the salt?...

My Classic IIs are screwed from the salt on the roads here. There pitted and nasty looking. Im gonna have to take some 000 steel wool to them. Make sure to clean them off a lot when the start laying salt down.
