Pro Comp Series 97 Review?

Does anybody have some reviews over this wheel? I like the look and cost of it but people are making me change my mind about them with alloy wheels and how they are better. Thing is the price isnt better. My Cj is my daily driver and I go offroad every once in a while. Should I save my money and go with an alloy type wheel?

I run ProComp 98s. I prefer steel over alloy and the $$$ saved is a bonus. There is a huge quality range in both steel & alloy wheels. ProComp is one of the better brands. The guys who mounted the tires were impressed with how little weight it took to balance them.

I have 2 sets. 5, 16" for winter grips and 5, 17" for mud terrains. Love them !!

I chose steel because I have broken alloys and been stranded and bent steels but still been able to drive. But you will get flack from the guys who just follow like sheep. A valid opinion is one thing. No respect for someone elses choice is just rude.

Thanks! I think Im going to go ahead and grab a set of 5. Have you had any problems with rust? Id like to get the 15x8 for 33x12.50 or do you have any recommendations on the width that would do good with a 12.50?

Rim width is something each tire manufacturer specifies.

Add a photo of your CJ to your profile... I had an '87YJ for 15 years as a DD.

Ive decided that instead of the Bfg Km2 Ill go with the Cooper Stt as my buddy got some for his truck and they are great. In the specifications online it says that the rim width recommendation is 8.5 to 11. Will a 1/2 inch hurt anything? Wouldnt think so but thats why Im asking
