    American racing aren't that bad. 15" rims are pretty much the same, i think. But i cant see straight right now so i could be wrong.

    Hell, if you like the way they look, I'd say go for it. I've had American Racing Wheels befor and liked them. Held up good, never broke on me. I had the Outlaw 1 rims.

    I have the same rims. I've been pretty happy with them. Good looks, and a decent price. My only complaint is the corrosion....but that will happen to all aluminum rims. I live in Wisconsin, and the road salt from the winter has put some corrosion/pitting on the rims....particularily on the flat surface where the lug holes are, and around the edges of the syling holes.
    Overall, though, I'd say get the rims...especially for that price. I'm planning on selling mine in the summer and hope to get $250-300 for them.
    Oh, yeah...one more thing...check the backspacing. When I ordered them from the tire store, they insisted on 4" backspacing even though I asked for 3 5/8". Well, when I got the 4" backspacing rims, the crimp on wheel weights hit my tie-rod ends. (stock 1/2 ton 10 bolt). So, I had to go with the stick-on-weights. Not a big deal, but the clearance between the rim and the tie-rod ends leaves something to be desired. Just something to look out for.
