Icon14 DC-2 are now out

I now how everyone loves these and they are so played out more than the Mickey Thompson classic II's

They finally came out with the DC-2 only difference from DC-1 is they don't have the bolts around the edge.

I wanna get me some when now. I may have enough left over from the insurance money from my accident

Eagle Alloy Wheels

These wheels were released shortly after the DC-1's were. They're certainly a cheaper alternative to the DC-2's and are very very similar.

These came out due to customers pissed off the clear coat cracked and they wouldn't warranty them.
If you follow the install instructions for the bolts around the edge it will crack the clear coat.
Then after awhile you get all kinds of corrosion. I tried to get a new set after 4 months and it happened to mine they told me it was my fault I had to install the bolts wrong.
It is kinda weird that some of the later DC-1's came with a rubber o-ring you put on the bolt to prevent it from touching the rim

imo that look, the polished spoke with black on any wheel, is getting played out. it seems that everyone and their brother has them. i see a lot of full sized trucks around here with those..

they are ugly, and i really dont understand the attention these receive.... wasted money.

I saw these bout 2 weeks ago when I was looking at wheels. I would take these over the DC-1's but I found a set I like better.

I think they look really good, and a bit cleaner than the DC-1s..

They seem like a step backwards or like a first prototype or something to me.. BUT, my decision is heavily biased..

I like the look of both gen's but kinda wish I didn't get mine, well over a year ago I was the only one in my county with the Dc-1's that's one reason I got 'em they (at the time ) were uiniqe and not many people were running them, but now i see 'em on Jeeps z71's Nissan titans, Frontiers, I am so ready for some new kicks for the truck. lol just need some more money haha.
