    Have six 15x8 legendary Mickey Thompson Challenger lightweight FORGED aluminum wheels for sale, great-looking clean design! No cheap cast aluminum wheels here - these are hot-forged by Alcoa Aluminum for an unbeatable stength-to-weight ratio. 6 on 5.5" for Toyota/Chevy/Nissan/Mitsubishi/Isuzu.
    - Approximately 4-3/16" center hole, perfect for Toyota, more than large enough for Chevy locking hubs
    - Lightweight but strong, one-piece hot-forged by Alcoa. (Less wheel weight means less rotating mass for better suspension performance, shorter stopping distances, and faster acceleration.)
    - 3,000 lb load rating
    - All wheels have rock-rash on the lip and some scrapes just inside the lip, and some minor brake dust pitting. They look great installed though, when you aren't inspecting them from eight inches away with a magnifying glass. =^)

    Four 15x8 with 4.5" backspacing and 31-10.50 Toyo Open Country A/T tires with 1/4" tread left. Price reduced: $600 firm

    These weigh about 19 or 20 lb each without tires, can ship from zip 93065. Located in SoCal (Simi Valley / Ventura County). Don't waste your money on heavy, fragile cast aluminum wheels (or spend $400 each for new forged aluminum wheels) when you can get these for much less.

    From Peterson's 4-Wheel & Off-Road: Wheel Performance Test of Forged Aluminum Wheels, Cast Aluminum Wheels, and Steel Wheels - 4 Wheel and Offroad Magazine
    When people go out to buy a new set of wheels they look for a style that will fit, something they think looks good, and something they can afford. Very rarely does wheel performance or wheel weight figure in to what wheel people choose. Most people think heavy equals strong, and many times it does. But a wheel that has all the strength you need without any extra weight is truly the ideal wheel. Ultimately the best wheel for your rig comes down to what you can afford versus what will work on your application.

    If you need an economical wheel that you can beat back into shape with a ball-peen hammer, go with a steel wheel.
    If you’re a mud, sand, and snow guy, or are just looking for a new wheel for your daily driver, then a lightweight cast wheel is the one for you.
    If you need the strength of steel without the weight penalty, break out the credit card and finance a set of forged aluminum wheels.
