    I have black 15x10 8 lug Eatons,they dont have any stripes /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gifThe Eaton rim center and the rim its self are way thicker than the steel used on the rock crawler.I paid $65 each from National Tire.

    eatons all the way .Way tougher than P.O.S generic rockcrawlers And I have never seen a an eaton with those faggy little stripes I have however seen "rockcrawler" rims with them. go with the eatons they are totally worth the money they balance better run true and hold there finsih much better than any other rim I've ever bought/had /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    My Brats (eaton and Bart are made by the same company) don't have the gay strip either. They are a good wheel too. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    My Eatons don't have a gay stripe and they are a heck of alot stronger than Rockcrawlers.

    im startin to think i did too. whenever i went to order my wheels that why i didnt get em b/c they had the stripe. maybe the rim shop did it. anyway as long as they dont have the stripe then theyre cool.
