Pro comp quality

As a general rule. I believe pro comp items are garbage. But I was wondering. How much difference can there be in wheels? Can you make a crappy quality wheel. I was looking at the pro comp 8179 but don't want to buy a bad product.

I believe these are the ones. Pardon the silly trim I took a snapshot with my iPhone.

lets just say i bought a pro-comp rear bumper and the hitch receiver was welded on crooked.. thankfully i dont use it for anything, as its only rated for 200lb tongue weight, and like 750lb "towing"

I have had procomp wheels for a few months now (PRO COMP Series 7089 1-Piece Cast-Blast™ Alloy Wheel) & wheelin' on rocks they are standing up pretty well,I was expecting them to be more scraped up & chewed around the edge but they are good so I would say they aren't a bad choice. Maybe' their other items aren't any good but their wheels are ok for what they cost

I would agree with most that pro comp is junk along the lines of smittybilt when it comes to most everything. I would put nothing made by either of them on anything I own. But I wheel with a couple guys that have the plain black wheel and they have held up just as good as my Mickey Thompson's. The only thing both of them have in common is the powder coat flaking away around the lug nuts. But there wheels are a couple years old.

I've had ProComp Extreme Alloy mod #8089s for over two years and-no problemo and they have a more prominente tire bead ridge, that helps hold at very low air pressure !!

Being that Pro Comps main gig is wheels, I wouldn't think they could be too bad.
I wouldn't use the suspension components though.

Those ProComp Extreme Alloys mod 8089 are 16x8" and very light/strong with good powdercoating and "brushed" alloy--

Good luck
