Procomp 8079 vs. Eagle Alloy 185

Trying to figure out which will look better. Both wheels look essentialy the same.

Procomps have 3.75 BS and Eagles have 3.25.

First question, with only a tbar crank will the extra 1/2" make much difference for rubbing (33x10.5 tires)?

I took a look today, no measuring, and it looks like it shouldn't make a difference.

Second which would you guys go with.

Eagles are $20 cheaper per wheel.

I like the eagles, and plus, they have less backspacing (which is a good thing IMO)

I didn't think of that. Procomps are powdercoated and Eagles are painted.

Might not be that easy of a decision.

Was actually looking at these two earlier in school. I pref the Eagle's because they have that depression to the design, whereas the Pro Comp's are flat looking.

In the 15x8 the Procomps are more curved like the Eagles.

I thought they were flat like the picture but I saw them on a jeep here in town and they look more like the eagles.
