    Eaton wheels are typically rated for very high loads and are made of much thicker steel than most other brands. If you read the warning sticker on most aftermarket wheels, they proclaim that any tire larger that 31 inches tall is not recommended. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif There are a lot of wheel companies out there that make a great living by selling cheap knockoffs of high quality wheels...

    Honestly though, when was the last time you hard of somebody breaking a wheel. Not bending the lip, but actually breaking the center of the rim due to large tires or heavy load. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    The Eaton wheel says "Extra Heavy Duty Steel". That's prolly the difference. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
