Gotta ask.....kinda confused....involving DC-1s

Wow....great title.

Roaming around Eagle Alloys website....saw a those dc-1 wheels. Does Eagle Alloy make wheels for Dick Cepek?? Or are eagle's a knock off of cepek. I noticed those ugly rivet looking things aren't on the eagles. Who knows, you might be ableto get the eagles cheaper. Imo, I'd rock the eagles just because of those rivet things...they look cleaner

Series 135B = DC-1
Series 135 Polished = DC-1 Polished

Eagle:

notice on both teh cepeks that those lines heading out..they continue to the edge. While on the eagles they stop before the edge. I was just lookin at differences.

Eagles are a knock off of the Dick Cepek DC-1's.....they are not much cheaper.....somewhere around $3-$5 cheaper......the DC-1's are only (depending on what style you got) $99 for a 15x8 and $115 for a 15x10...

I like the Eagles better because they don't have the rivets, but I don't really like either.

eagles look 500000000000000000000x better no "fake" bead lock bolts. and around the lug looks nicer, and so does the lines... still would never rock those wheels even if you paid me...
