If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

man...wheels are so personal. Even though all black wheels are the popolar choice these days I kinda like the ultra baja's or the 174's, but my favorites are still the polished Outlaw l's and ll's

I got the cragar v-5 rims because they are cheap. They kinda look like the stock wheels I have. But I got 5 of them shipped to my house from summitracing for 212.00.

Yeah i bet. It's all about choosin the right wheel for your application.

OP if you are doin just logging and fire roads and mild trails with out a lot of rocks..go steel.

If you are gonna see more rocks go with aluminum.

33's on 15x8 with 4" BS will work just fine on 3" lift and up.
