thats awesome Connor, good to hear bro. Lets Wheel!

Did a little lone wheelin yesterday out by some local power lines....the tires did great. The holes were still DEEP (almost up to my headlights in one) but I didn't get stuck....got very close twice. I need to get the locker wired up. I went back to discount tire for the third time today and had them start from scratch on my tires. My guy there said he guaranteed me he could get them right if he could put the weights on the inside and outside. I said go for it. After that, it's still not right. It's actually worse than when I brought it in. So that's enough of the weights. I'm going to go buy some beads and have them do it. My guy said he would break the seal for me to drop them in.

I've been thinking about that, but at the same time, I don't think it's the rims. Why else would everything balance out perfectly on the high speed road force machine? I just think it's the guys at Discount not taking their time. Everything is perfectly smooth up until 45ish, then it gets a little wobbly. It's bead time. If it's still ****ty after the beads, then I'll dig deeper.

Well, it's the rims....two, yes TWO, of the cragars are bent. There's the problem. I'm fed up and am going to get some MB Wheels Razor alloys ordered from Discount tomorrow. Those guys have been awesome and very helpful. My guy there is hooking me up with a very good price as well. Pictures to come.

It should be obvious I don't like chrome. They are brushed and look very good. I got a good look at one today. If I don't like it, I'll paint them black. They are super light and feel really solid...and they won't be bent. If you were having the troubles I'm having, you'd be stoked about these wheels too.

I hear you. I went through a million possibilities when looking at wheels for my build and ended up deciding to keep the ones I've got. I'm definately painting or powdercoating them though. There will be nothing silverish on my Jeep when I'm done.

Good call man. I was just really tired of my stock wheel's look. These look really good and if they don't, then I'll paint them. Then they'll look like aluminum soft 8s.

I'm running black Ultra Wheels, and when I scratch up the rims from riding trails, just use a little black touch up paint on them and they look brand new! ... well almost
