Stock wheels vs. Aftermarket?

Was going to pick up a new set of aftermarket wheels (15x8 for 33x12.5s), however I've been hearing that aftermarket wheels are cheaply made and was wondering if i would be better off with a set of wheel spacers for the stockers?

Well, it depends what aftermarket wheels you are looking at as to how cheaply made they are....... Walker Evans are not cheaply made... AEV, and many others aren't either... Some are, like Cragars, ProComp, etc, but that doesn't really mean they are likely to cause problems. I doubt you'll have as many problems from a cheap steel wheel as you may encounter from spacers... although lots of guys (and girls) use spacers with no problems either.....

I really like the looks of the ultra rogue 175 in black/machined, 15x8 to fit the 33x12.5s. Have a black tj that I wanted a black on black with the machined. Any other ideas? Thanks
