Ah, so you ended up not going with Mike, RC. When he told me his new price..I didn’t bother passing any more info to you. They are very heavy indeed…I’m assuming you’re putting 285/45/22 on, you will definitely not have the cushy ride those 70 series tires you’re on now give. Braking will be slower, ride definitely harder. I just last week switched back to my 265 Firestone cop wheels, because I got a chunk of metal in one of my 22s, and honestly the ride is dreamy now comparatively. The 285s do rub the backs of the fender liners…I had to cut some squares out to stop that. Even with all that said, until last week, I’ve had them on for 3 years with no issues, I love the look, no one else has 22” steelies in town on anything. (I’ve seen a couple of 20” Mobsteels) They do get plenty of positive comments…and realistically, I’ll fix my tire, and put them back on.
Yup, he told me $150 per wheel/tire to ship. Granted each wheel without a tire weighs a freaking metric TON, holy crap. But yeah, I couldn't justify the cost of shipping, but his price with the tires was pretty good.
Just such a clean look…View attachment 394287
That looks awesome! I can't wait, dropped mine off for powder this morning. :)

They look great. How are you thinking to mount the PPV center cap? I didn’t like where the mounting holes lined up, thought drilling and tapping into that raised ring would possibly weaken the wheel. I like the look without them, so I didn’t bother. There is a guy out there that makes a clip kit to mount other styles of cap. I have him saved somewhere if you need them. Think it was about $100. I’m dropping mine to 4/6 on Friday..pretty excited. I’ve got the front spindles, shock extenders and 4” spring now. Going to 6” rear spring, trailing arm replicators, and Spohn adjustable panhard bar, and adjustable drop front struts, to take out the Chevy lean. All Belltech stuff before and after…except the 6” springs. I’ll post a pic when it’s all done.

Hey, didn’t you do a Dashskin cover? If so, how did that turn out? Still happy with it? I’m ready to order one right now
