Price: $109.00
Pros: Look good, nice style
Cons: plastic center cap chips easily.
Recommended? No

Comments: They have all corroded. Corrosion has come from every bold in the lip on every tire and discolored the aluminum part of the lip. I have to call and see if they will replace them. It's hard to believe that these rims couldn't survive one winter, and honestly it wasn't driven that much. I have no doubt that the bolts are some sort of cheap metal that has had a reaction to the rim after being exposed to salt. I've never seen anything like this on a rim before. I can't in good conscience recommend them unless you live in the deep south where salt is not an issue.

Cons: Kind of easy to scratch.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These things look amazing on my jeep. Its a dark blue so the black wheels with chrome bead accent just looks amazing especially at night.

Pros: Cleans up easy
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I was running 15x10" wheels and kept losing a bead so I switched to these rims and have not had a problem. They clean up easy and they were able to balance them.

Price: $450.00
Pros: Look good, affordable
Cons: not sure yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Everyone seems to be happy with these. I was considering DC-1's at first, but found these to be a little easier on the wallet, plus they're a more industrious look, which by my jeep is probably a bit more appropriate. I replaced Eagle Alloy 186's with 'em.

Pros: Classic good looks
Cons: plastic center cap
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These wheels are great so far. Ive had them for about 8 months now and been through mud and rocks several times and they always clean up real nice. They have that classic lock look, but painted black so it really sets off my silver jeep. I think it is the best 500$ i have spent so far. Only disappointment was the plastic center caps. They are painted chrome and seem like they will crack easily over time. I would still highly recommend these wheels!!!

Comments: I bought all five for our jeep. 15X8. The look great. When I bought them they had just came out. The only issue was the how long it took to get them. They were so new they didn't have enough to fill my order
