    I priced out a brand new set from Alcoa for my 95 f350 dump and they were actually reasonably priced.

    To rich for my blood Mark!

    I sport me some chrome simulators on my 550. Real nice Clark.

    I'm considering some steel wheels with simulators to run on my truck in the winter to keep the aluminum wheels out of the salt and crap. They're coated right now but when they get dull and start to peal I'll have them stripped and polished and I want to keep them out of the salt if I can help it after that.

    I've been eyeing some real nice KMC "XD Battalions". With a good set of General HTS (Low rolling resistance to boot) with two new inner steelies, I'm out the door for $2,400.

    Alcoas are nice, but very spendy and I like something with "Pop"

    A cut and polished set of Alcoa's will pop, more then a black wheel will.

    I dunno. Different strokes for different folks. I think with trucks, all the chrome rims look the same.

    Ask my dogs, all mail men like the same.

    Just saying.
     
  15. I have them on my f450. They have some spots where the clear coat has come off. And looks like crap, this spring I want to cut an polish them but they do look great

    You going to cut and polish them yourself?

    I did my flatbed once myself, it taught me to have someone else do it next time. :D
     
  17. Hell no. I would but it works out cheaper to have a truck stop do them. There is a guy down by my dad's that does them for 50 each

    10-4. I've been talking with a guy up in Wi to have him do my bed, toolboxes, and in time my wheels. He does a lot of show trucks and I figured he could handle doing a pickup as well.
     
  19. I want to find an extra set for the winter and powder coat black chrome
