    Unless you just like the look, I fail to see the point of street locks.

    They are just for looks but I think they look sweet. Check out the Readers Ride section, there's a red Blazer in there that has them.

    Is there any working value to these rims? Are they stronger or are they just extra decoration on a rim? thanks

    they say the lip is stronger, but have you been bending your steel rims? For me they wouldn't warrant the price at all. Hell, you can get a set of beadlocks for nearly that price and still have a functional set of rims.

    Yes, I have been bending my steel rims. Right now three out of four are bent. That is the beauty of steel rims, you just hammer them back into a relatively round shape.
    I still think these are pointless, though. They add more rotating & unsprung weight. That is never a good thing.
    Kind of like the lowered 2WD P/U with nerf bars and brush guard. They just scream "poser"
