Welds have been crap for years since they sold the company..many reports of cracks, so make sure they are the orginals. I have ran many cast wheels without problems most are rated as high as Forged..Procomps are good rims..

Production on Weld's stopped when they sold the company to American Racing, and AR never continued with them. Where are you getting your info on the crap wheels? :confused:

Weld, however, did get bought back from AR recently. I called and talked to the guy that bought it back and he told me they are only going to produce race wheels, no truck/passenger car wheels. They did buy all the center caps back from AR, so if you're needing some for an old set of wheels better hurry. I just got my back up set last week. $100 shipped to my door w/screws.:D

I know u said u were looking for aftermarket because your facctory wheels were starting to look bad. What about refinishing them? If you use aircraft stripper, you can remove the clearcoat & polish them to your liking as often as you want when they start to look ratty. I run mine year round & hand polish them twice a year. Could save you some coin if ur willing to put in a little elbow grease. I've done a few sets with great results. The ones below looked like the sides of the rims when I got 'em.

here's my obs. they are not "aftermarket wheels". they are hummer H2 wheels. they werent direct bolt on either. the centers for the hubs had to be opened up to fit



Love the H2 wheels. Was thinking about running them, but wanted to run hub caps with them. Seen them on some dodges and they look great....

chrome fan here. If its more work, its worth it. Not a fan of machined or polished. My wheels are shinier dirty than polished wheels......

No complaints so far about my KMC's, we'll see how winter and the crap they put on the road treats em....

Methods in 17x9… wish they were 10” wide. Have since replaced the R/Ts with Nitto Ridge Grapplers 37x12.5x17, same size as the R/Ts. Went with Nittos due to supply chain shortages in Western Canada, August last year, couldn’t get R/Ts till late October…
Cheers,

Do you have any rubbing issues with your setup? I'd like to get aftermarket rims at some point but I don't know what sizes fit without any cutting.

Hi Nate, Yaaas with 37x12.5x17” tires mine touch the spring aft of the axle at near full lock. Had to shim bumper forward and zip cut the “hook” off the bottom corner on each side.

Ok, I am going to change out my stock bumper and may end up moving it forward anyway, so thank you for letting me know anyway. I'd like to just have them fit on without cutting so I guess i'll have to go with 11.5 or maybe 12 wides at the most. But it looks great as is :)
