    First of all, I did search.

    Second, I know that the blacked out wheels are the "in" thing these days. I just cannot make myself go there right now.

    I do not care for chrome, but have always liked the look of high quality aluminum wheels.

    So here is the questions. Are any of you running the JAOS wheels? If so, what feedback would you give them? Where in the US did you buy them?

    Performance Products used to carry that line of wheels back in the day. Jaos is another Aussie company that manufactures off road products. They have some nice stuff but were pretty pricey the last time I looked.

    Yes, search ninja. :)

    Again, I am not looking for just an opinion or comment, I am looking for anyone that actually OWNS and DRIVES these wheels. Note that they are not for the bargain hunting wheel shopper. For example the ZIGA wheels are a TRUE three piece design. A single wheel can cost more than a whole set of what is popular these days, as I understand it.

    They have a reputation for being sick light, and strong. They also come in the sixteen in size with multiple widths.

    Blue, it seems like that is the story. Just not that popular here.

    I buddy of mine has them on a Pajero he built up. He loves the wheels and the ride quality. I was just looking to see if someone had them on a Tacoma.

    I guess the thing that makes me edgy would be having to wait for a replacement if something happened.
