Need opinions on wheels...

SMB can no longer offer AE 186's because they started cracking so were looking at other styles. What are thoughts about these...








I've seen a lot of the Mojaves and like them but was interested in something different. What do you think?

Re: Need opinions on wheels...

I also like the Mojaves, but wanted something different too.

I like the 2nd ones down and KMC is a good company to deal with. I am on my 3rd set of XD wheels and am super happy! FWIW, I can get the 2nd wheels down with tires for a screaming deal....but they are 20's and 6x8.5.

I think we need clarification on what versions of the 186s have restrictions. Not all versions were cracking. IIRC there was a processed version (anodized?) that had problems, and a coated version that did not have problems.

Re: Need opinions on wheels...

I still like the rims mentioned about halfway down this thread (Stockton wheels), if you don't mind more of an industrial look.

American Racing has been making a good product for a good price for a long time, so then if you what the standard look go with the first wheel.
If you are looking for something more, then between the three that you have posted, the KMC XD Series Revolver has some style to it.
What size you looking to purchase?

I'm planning on a 18x 9 wheel and Cooper discoverer SST 325/65/18's. I'm leaning toward the revolvers more and more. Sure wish the AE 186's were available though!

Re: Need opinions on wheels...

Does anybody know what these wheels are or how to positively ID them. I 'THINK" they are AR Mojave's but not 100% sure
