Thanks guys... No I dont have the 60 in yet... I have a couple other small things to do first, and I have to find a track bar setup. Good news is that the 60 appears to have newer Moog Tie rods, BJ's and new axle joints... Everythings greasable... Im going to clean up the axles, throw some new wheel bearings in, probably some new brakes and paint everything up nice before it goes in.

I really like the styling of these wheels... I wish they werent so expensive, and I wish they had them in 18's

I really dont wanna spend $2200 on wheels alone...

Man I'm still jealous of that D60... But anyway I like those wheels a lot. There are some wheels similar to that in an 18", iirc they are KMFs. They are really nice looking wheels and have a really deep well. Iirc they were like $250 a piece for the wheels on the site that I saw. The wheels were from a place in Santee, CA. I would get you the link but my computer crashed. It would be hard to find and link on my phone...

I guess these arent too bad...

KMC XD Series Badlands Wheels - 779

About on the ragged edge of being too busy, but half the price of the other ones, and the nice part about it, is Les Schwab is a dealer, and I think my wife has a line of credit with them... Those with some Toyo's or something wouldnt look to bad on the truck...

Ya I meant KMC lol. Not KMF. But anyway those are the exact ones I was talking about. I love those wheels. I like um in 20" though. I just can't get chrome myself. I don't keep um clean enough. So eventually I'll probably get some polished aluminum wheels or black and aluminum maybe... Those are bada** wheels though!!

Racin i have to tell you... as a wheel and tire distributor over here on the east coast i would try to stay away from anything chrome... Even though a lot and i mean a lot of companies clame to be triple nickel platted it just a bunch of bull. The new chemical that they put down on the roads for snow or anything of that nature will eat through the "triple nickel platting" in one winter and will leave a really crappy wheel behind for the years to follow. There are many performance and accessory shops around that have actually completely stopped carrying chrome rims because of it. If you can get the wheel in polished aluminum, a lot more forgiving! I didnt mean to down your choice in wheels i just wanted to through that out there for ya... its such a nice build and i loved it from your first post and even was following it over on PSN! I just didnt want you to put all that $$$ in and end up unsatisfied in a year or two!

P.S. keep up the great work man!

not a problem man! yeah believe me its not just you we have had so many issues with chrome rims its not even funny! We have stopped all together! Plus they are not as strong as they used to be either in the last year or so we have had so many that have come back cracked or warped... Quality in general has gone down so much unfortunately.

I believe that for sure. My buddy actually cracked an Enkei wheel on his Evo. I was shocked such an expensive wheel would do that...

Coalroller,you couldn't have said it any better.
i learned the hard way twice! lol i did the same thing to two vehicles.
never again.it's either aluminum or stock rims.
you couldn't believe how happy i was after the DRW convert to learn about the stainless steel simulators!your so right.1 winter and the crhome rims are shot.thats with keeping them washed off regularly too.you can't keep up with it.impossible.
