Yeah when I'm ready to buy I will! But I'm also gonna bump up to ~5.5" so shouldn't be an issue hopefully. Plus I've got bumps tops to stop the upper from hitting floor if needed.

I don't have a welder or a garage if I did I might. But I also like the fact if something breaks there is a warranty. If something bends or breaks I can make a simple phone call.

Hmmm so according to the interwebz, a 35x12.5x15 pit bull rocker is 81lbs, a 35x12.5x15 wrangler mtrk is 67lbs. So if I run pit bulls with aluminum rims its no worse than mtrk on steelies. Hmmm... something to take into consideration. And an aluminum wheel will hold up better over steelies.

Bead locks are better but the other aluminum rims have a bad habit of 'sploding

steel wheel + MTRk, central rotating mass with lighter tire outside

remember rotating mass affects gas mileage, braking power, steering, and wear on wheel bearings and axle shafts.
