How are your Moabs holding up?

Any corrosion? Clear coat bubbling? I've been thinking about getting a set of these in the future and I would like to know how durable these wheels are. Thanks, Chris

Mine are doing good so far. One has a nasty gash going across half of the wheel, no corrosion.

mine will be for sale with 31 inch mtrs with less than 21000 miles on them in about 2 months, and yes they hold up fine.

Mine have pretty good scratches/scars on all of the them from rocks. No paint could have held up any better. No blistering or corrosion though. Good thing is the aluminum is gray so the scratches don't show as much as if they would have been black painted rims. Also, I've sheared off two valve stems, a buddy has done the same, not sure but I think other rims might have the valve stems deeper into the rim to avoid this.

Had to post this pic cause I like it.

It is kind of an evolved lift. Started out as a Teraflex 3" with Rancho 9000x adjustable shocks, ended up with 4" pro-comp springs, RE lower fixed arms, RE adjustable rear uppers, and finally Rokman front uppers. Funny the only thing TeraFlex left on it is the sticker and the rear sway bar links.

Very durable appearance wise excluding elements not made of rocks. 5 years of outdoor living in rust-belt and driven daily and mine are in great shape besides all the rock rash.

I did replace the factory lugs recently. Those caps are crap.

I've got an '05 that has the painted versions. After a few years of midwest road-salt winters and they still look new aside from a couple bubbles on the finish of the center caps.

Mine are holding up great. They have been through many winters with heavily salted roads. No corrosion or bubbling. Only damage is from the rocks. Other than that they are like new still.

I got quite a bit of rock rash on mine all the way into the "spoke" area that lead to the clear coat coming off pretty substantially. Not the wheels fault, probably would have happened to any. Now I'm running black powder coated aluminum and I've already beat them up too. I need a mall queen. Haha.
