    The wheel designers at Level 8 Wheels shot us some renderings of a few concept Truck/SUV wheels they are thinking about building. At this point, diameter, widths, offsets, finishes and even the cap could be changed or modified, We gave them our thoughts and then suggested posting them on a few forums for input. They said, by all means, lets see what the enthusiasts think.

    So, give us your feedback, good and bad, voice your opinion. Do you have any suggestions? If they were priced similar to other Level 8 wheels that we sell would you buy them? Current Prices = http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/wheels/level_8/home.do
    For those of you that have seen the Level 8 ZX with optional Bolt-on Scratch Guard should any of these wheels have that option too?

    ATTN: Photoshoppers - feel free to photoshop them onto your truck and post some pictures here with your thoughts.

    The designers at Level 8 wheels will be reading your posts so please help us give them some constructive feedback.

    I like the 6 and 7 spoke wheels (I like the 6 spoke a little better). The split spoke isn't really my style.

    If I were looking for aftermarket wheels, I'd be all over that 7 spoke. Like that alot, especially if they made it in a brushed bronze finish.

    really like the 6 spoke, look alot like Konig countersteer which i would've gotten if I was made of money. I can atest to the quality of Level 8 wheels tho, my guardians are solid as can be w/ no balancing problems and look amazing!

    The 6 spoke reminds me a lot of the Countersteers. Not sure if I'm digging any of them though. Sorry.

    If Level 8 cares.... I'd really like to see a D window alloy that has the dished look of a steel D window. Not a fan of the flat face on the Black Rocks.

    If they decided to build them today it would take about 4-6 months at minimum before we would see them. These are, as stated, just concepts right now.

    I like the accent. Link to prices on current Level 8 product, prices would be similar: http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/wheels/level_8/home.do

    Reminds me of TE37s and RPF1s. I like them a lot and the pricing looks good too. Any chance you'd be making them in 5x114.3 bolt pattern?
