    are original chev/GMC rims as strong as aftermarket white spokers???? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif the reason I ask is, I'm thinking of using OE rims with my cybrefire beadlocks. I just think they will look better with beadlocks then my whitespokers, IMO. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I would think they would be the same strength wise.
    If they are the ralley wheels then hell ya I would beadlock those. They look much better than spoke wheels.

    I prefer the look of the OE Rally wheels over most aftermarket wheels. I think they would look cool with the beadlocks, and use the factory center cap for some bling bling /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
