when I eventually go with beadlocks I'll get a high quality set like the walker evans. They are of course aluminum.
until then I'm happy with my steel wheels. They work and are strong with a welded on rock ring and I don't care if they get scratched so why should I change. I just won't go below 8 psi until I get the bling

I noticed that too.....good eye.

I like alloy too

As for my $.02 worth, I spend enough of my time on the highway that I'm far more likely to damage a wheel there than off road, so I stick w/ steelies, cuz I've broken a few too many aluminum wheels hopping over curbs, potholes, etc, and not just in my Jeeps Well, that and the fact that I'm a cheap bastard!

|Chad P||I have these wheels now so I am go to get them powder coated then get some 1" spacers to fix the off set problem. I have 12.50 wid tires so they rub a little.|

I saw those on ebay however their backspacing was bad
15 x 8" / 50mm offset replica.
|01-14-2008 10:36 AM|
those look sweet ^^
even when they aren't powdercoated those are some sharp looking wheels

I want to do this to mine:

|MR.CLIFFORD||The Hutchinsons were even more expensive and I scratched the piss out of those. I'd rather scratch an expensive wheel than bend a cheap one.|
|01-14-2008 12:41 AM|
|Triple88a||lol if that was me i'd feel my heart bleed when i scratch them lol|
|01-14-2008 12:33 AM|
I try to not let that hold me back.
I could have had a complete set of steel beadlocks for less than the cost of 1 of my wheels. I still chose the alloy.

|01-14-2008 12:19 AM|
they are steel.
Alloy > Steel.

|Triple88a||hey everybody what about chrome steelies like the procomp 88s?|
|01-13-2008 11:57 PM|
I will always advocate alloy wheels over steelies after owning a set of black steel wheels.
I've had a few different allow wheels as well to base my opinions.
and the set on the wifes jeep.
|01-13-2008 11:49 PM|
I really like the look of the black steelies, but not enough to give up my Eagles.
|01-13-2008 11:42 PM|
i hade a set of black steelies on bfg's AT on 33's but spend the extra for alloy's i love my eagles

|steve1||Oh,black jeep is great!I love it !Very cool!Nice pics!|

|iamagolfspaz||Hey BPOWA No problems with balance or vibration. My Good Year dealer balances them and rotates them for free at every oil change for me.|
|01-13-2008 01:10 PM|
alloy for sure.
i've had steelies and now alloys and alloys are better by far.
way lighter and they look way better. well worth the extra coin.

|Walkeraviator||The key for my choice is funds available. I have to buy five rims and five tires for $1000. So thats $150 per tire leaving only $50 per wheel hence... steelies.|
|01-13-2008 04:12 AM|
i like how these look, any balance/ vibration issues?
|01-13-2008 03:50 AM|
i´ve got some wheels you don´t know in the US. they´re from a french company...
|01-13-2008 03:43 AM|
Alloy all the way.
Why do you think all the best beadlock wheels are made of aluminum?
I like my Eagle's.
|01-13-2008 02:52 AM|
|iamagolfspaz||Black Pro Comp Steelies with 3.75 back spacing|
|01-13-2008 01:57 AM|
There is no comparison.
Alloys > Steelies
Cmoore on another forum said it best when comparing cheesy steel wheels to Alloys.
