Ultra wheels

Anybody have any experience with Ultra Brand Wheels? I'm thinking about ordering these through tire rack along with some duratracs. Or should I go with the cheap steel wheels?

They make some pretty nice wheels, and any alloy is better than steel IMO.

I have decided to go with the Ultra 164 when I lift my Jeep. They are lightweight (16.5 lbs in a 15x8) and I like the black finish.
