    What's going on guys? Just wanted to let everyone know that I got my new wheels today! I ended up getting the 15x14 chrome Bart Wheels. I opened up the box and WHOA, those things are huge! Now, all I need to do is get some 39.5" Boggers and those damn 3/4 ton axles on my truck. Just wanted to share my excitement. See ya!

    I don't have any pics yet, but hopefully when I get my tires mounted on there I'll have some. These things are pretty wide alright. Look really good too! The chrome is nice and clean. They are 8 lug with 3.5" backspacing as well.

    Has anyone tried the Wheel Vintiques wheels?? From what I've seen they are guaranteed to be true. My brother had 3 sets of Barts and ALL of them were warped!! His were 15x10. He'd pick up the truck drive down the road and turn around and go back. After they mounted the 3rd set and he returned he bought aluminum. I'm planning to go to 14 and 8 lug front and will be shopping for wheels in the future, so I was wondering about the Wheel Vintiques.
