Level 8 Bully Pro

Are these still available? The old thread started by ATD is closed and the level 8 site doesn't show these wheels. Did they dump them due to issues people were having?

Still available but due to issues I've heard and seen I've switched to getting the Rugged Ridge XHD with their rock rings.

There is a thread on here or the other forum about the hardware on the wheels corroding. Then on a truck forum a few cracked. Wish I had the links...but I searched it out. I like the looks of these wheels a lot and they were my number 1 choice.
I thought I was going to get the Rugged Ridge XHD wheels today but found out they are 32lbs each. Some Method wheels I was looking at are 26 or 27 lbs each. I'm just trying to get a quality wheel and the least amount of unsprung weight I can.

DTD assured me they are using new hardware now. The plating on the previous ones had issues with rusting. I also could get them with the rock rings not installed so I could use anti-seize. Never install bolts into aluminum without something, I have had great results with blue locktite. It will keep the bolts from seizing and getting loose which with a plastic ring is a good idea as you can't torque against the plastic as it has too much give.

Locktite's a good idea, but I'd stick to the Antiseeze, and your right 2 dissimilar metals will always cause you problems,
