KMC Monster Wheels

Probably old news to most, but to you who haven't heard. The KMC 778 Monsters wheels are discontinued for the Ford F250/350 8 on170 bolt pattern. Spoke to KMC this morning apparantly the front wheels are failing due to the weight of the front end. They did say they will replace any broken or cracked wheels at their cost. My guess would be a set of four in a different style, just a guess. So if you got them, better check them boys.

That's been known for a while about them and the rockstars cracking but I've also heard of them cracking on dodges and Chevys as well so....

Re: KMC Monster Wheels

That's was straight from the KMC. Sounds strange to me also, but I applaud them for taking action if there is a problem.

Re: KMC Monster Wheels

I wouldn't worry too much. I've had my monsters for 4yrs and no issues. Tons of nasty oilfield driving and towing my fifth wheel (17,000lbs).
