The Steel aftermarket wheels weigh a ton, but will be stronger and easier to touch up with a rattle can.

I've been rolling D windows for a year now, and I think --- D Windows > V-5's > Soft 8's

I've started to get a bit nostalgic for white YJ style rims though, and the D windows do come in silver now which don't seem to have the red and blue pinstripe many dislike. Both these wheels ship for about 60 bucks per rim at Summit - 50 +10 heavy object fee (No kidding)

If I was to start over again, I'd probably go with the white Nomads to be different but I'm afraid of rust stains in the land of salt and corrosion.

Thank you all so much! After seeing multipe pictures, I had to go with 16" moabs. They just look amazing.

I searched around and found a set with goodyear mtrs on then for $500.

Partial to D-windows. I've had em with the streetlocks and without and both look great.

What size D-windows are you buying? I though they were like $45 each on summit racing?
