    Hey has anyone heard of or had any experience with Gear Alloy Rims. Here is a pic of one that I am considering. I was originally considering the MM951 Black or the DC1's (but the guy at the shop today told me that the DC's are expensive compared to other rims.

    Here ya go!! Been good so far. Finish seems to hold up well considering I'm not known for being easy on my truck. They are usually brown with mud through the entire hunting season and they clean up well at the end!!

    Damn man they do look sweet on the taco. I think they are gonna give the DC's a run for their money.

    I know this has been dead for many a year now but didn't want to start a new post just to ask one question. About to order some but my buddy who is a mechanic says he's seen them crack before and that he doesnt like them.I'm thinking they're alloy so they'll be more susceptible to cracking over steel anyway. Anyone experienced this or can help?
