Black Rock vs. American Eagle wheels

Hey guys, I'm in the market to put to wheels and tires on my JK and am stuck between two at the moment... Hoping some of you in the know might be able to help.

I'm looking at the Black Rock Seriess 997 Type 8 (http://www.quadratec.com/products/92613_105X_A_PG.htm) and the American Eagle Series 100 Black (http://4wheelonline.com/Eagle_Alloy_....168273.617738).

Anyone here have any advice between the two??

Thanks!
PittJeep

Any alloy wheel is FAR better then a steel wheel. Alloy will be lighter, stonger, look better, balance better which will all help the jeep perform AND LOOK BETTER

If you decide to go with an aluminum wheel, as far as I know American Eagle are still made in USA. Pretty much all other aluminum wheels are made in China. If you get the AE 100's be sure to post pictures!
