    Only rims I have ever seen that I said, I want those on my blazer /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif I'm a factory style rally rim guy, but from some odd reason I like these. Seen them in person at PepBoys. Price is right... about $300 for the set, comes in 6lug, 15x8, 3-5/8" backspace

    I think they'd look good on your truck, and the price isn't bad at all.

    Those wheels are so inexpensive becuase they are Proline brand wheels, Pep Boys' brand. I personally would never buy Pep Boys wheels because they are cheap, they look cheap, and don't hold up at all. They often come from the factory with major defects including being off balance and having nicked edges. They rust very easilly and chip and scratch just the same. I would say stay away but that's just my opinion. But please do me a favor and if you do buy them, DO NOT have them mounted at Pep Boys unless you want them all scratched up before they hit pavement.

    I just sold a set of M/T Classic IIs.

    I thought they were the same as American Eagle 589s, boy was I wrong.

    The quality on them was much better. The Mickey Thompson wheels really are nice.

    The wheels look nice--but 300 bucks in my wallet would look even nicer!--I'm a sucker for the factory rally rims,I think they look the best on GM trucks--I have some "old school" aluminum rims on my 79 C10,the slotted mag style,but they are unilugs,and they are pretty weak as far as hitting a curb or other abuse--I prefer steel wheels in a way on a truck,especially if you carry any weight. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    they look ok and the price is good. Seems like some peeps think pepboys rims suck tho...

    I doubt I'll be buying to many factory new rims personally, used ones seem to go so cheap on line that its not worth the $ to me to buy new.

    The 4 rally wheels I have on the my van(8 inch X 15's)I found sitting at the metal pile at our landfill!- /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif-2 even had useable tires on them!.I see lots of them at the junkyards,its hard to find all 4 on 1 vehicle,usually one is wrecked by the crash that sent it to the junkyard,or the forkloader guys push the cars around by the rim with the loader.I can get them for about 10 bucks apeice--when I scrapped some metal monday I noticed a huge pile of rims,both aluminum and steel people had junked now that scrap is way up--my friend bought 2 lincoln town car factory mags for 20 bucks and sold them to his boss for 100 bucks for his snow tires!. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    If you like them, run them /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif To me the finish looks a little cheap, but if the truck is gonna see mostly pavement it should be ok.

    For a street rig, A little "bling bling" is always cool. The price is decent also.
