      Does anyone have pics of an X with black wheels on it? I've been seeing lots of jeep cherokees lately with black wheels and it looks so cool.

      I think some big gunmetal rims on a street X would look real sweet

      Yeah, I actually do have the money to spend on some >$100 worth of rims, but I think they only look good with larger tires (mud-terrain, superswampers especially), a lift, and a roof rack and/or extra lights mounted to the front on the truck. I have...let's see....carry the five...NONE of those...

      I'm talking about off-road trucks, not the sport trucks...I'm clueless about sport trucks :confused:

      They are about the most basic steel wheels you can purchase. That makes them very popular for hardcore offroaders b/c they can be replaced real cheap if they happened to get bent or dented or the trail.

      They are cheap because they are stamped steel.

      Mine were almost impossible to balance with 31's. Steel is much heavier than aluminum as well. I sold mine almost as soon as I bought them.

      Actually, they don't weigh much more than my stock cast aluminum wheels. Al is supposed to be much lighter, but stock al wheels aren't nearly as light as aftermarket ones. And they are perfectly balanced, inexpensive, and look great ;)

      I didn't think American Racing made 15x10 in a 4x4.5 bolt pattern. The only ones I can find are the Rock Crawlers. Alec, where'd you get your Rock Crawlers at $40 a pop? Do they have 3.75" backspacing?

      that's what I've got. They have 4.5, 4, 3.75, and 3.5 I believe. Some they have to make to order though. 4 Wheel Parts.

      True, but to make them as strong as steel ones,the actual amount of aluminum needed in a 4X4 aluminum rim fars exceeds the amount of steel in the same size of rim. That is why they are almost as heavy. My stock steel rims are very thin, yet they are very strong....
