Nice purchase, Ive been running those wheels for 6 months now, no complaints. thick, feel very sturdy, love the backspacing as well.

I looked at those wheels when I first went wheel shopping and I decided to go all chrome. But I still love those. Nice choice!

Just pulled the trigger on some new 33x12.50 r15 BFG AT's...got a sweeeet deal so i had to snag em :) I should have em on by tuesday.

Sorry Pedro no MTs lol

The guy at the shop was telling me that those rims would be a pain to balance up bc he have to use the sticky weights on the inside...is that bull? or could that be a legit problem? i just figured he was a rookie

I used to fling sticky weights on my old truck. now i just get the normal ones, i don't care if it shows and my friend was getting pissed that i kept showing up to his work to get them balanced again lol but yes, they'll have to go on the inside probably. big tires are usually harder to balance. mine were road forced and indexed just to make it easier

Nice looking wheels. Sometimes I wish I would have gotten those instead of my current wheels.
