    vary popular no major problems. if thay are aluminum polished thay will need care now and then to keep shine.

    I know they look good inside of some 36" Iroks! :D They have a clear coat finish, so keeping them clean is real easy because you don't have to polish them. I'm not sure how the finish would hold up against hard core wheelin' though.

    I have them in a 16x10 on my Suburban and love 'em! The clear coat is THICK and should hold up to lots of abuse. It also means that you don't have to polish them to keep them looking good. :cool1:

    I like American Eagle rims. They are made in America, and are still reasonbly priced. I have a set of these on my Crew Cab. I got them for only $100 a piece (shipped and every thing) with lug nuts, center caps, and valve stems.

    For about the same money you could buy some Mickey Thompson Classic II's. They have more shine than the American Eagle or Eagle Alloys and don't need polished as often.

    I think Mickey Thompsons are manufactured by American Eagle. I am not super knowledgable on the subject of Mickey Thompson, but I think the Micky Thompson company has not manufactured any of their own stuff in the last 10 to 15 years. They have farmed everything out since shortly after Mickey Thompson was murdered.
