    Well it looks like refinishing my factory wheels will cost more than buying some new ones. Any opion on the MT classic II ? How does the finish hold up ?
    Thanks,
    John

    They do fade as any polished aluminum wheel does, but keep up on them with Mothers aluminum polish and they stay shiny. I will be selling some in about a month or so.

    Mickey Thompson Classic (not Classic II) wheels are mor expensive, but look EXACTLY like the stock alloys that came on our trucks.

    I LOVE my clasic II's. After 2 years, its time to polish them though. 5 Stars.

    Great wheels! Good weight rating and steel insert lug neat seats.

    Finish is awesome from the factory and it is relatively easy to keep them lloking that good. Just don't let them go too long between polishes.

    I've been running mine for about a year or so. They have been through a salty winter in Idaho and as long as you keep them clean they still look like new. I would definitely recommend them.
