    I need new wheels as a local tire and wheel dealer destroyed my wheels today putting new tires on my truck. This is the second time this has happened in 1 YEAR!!! Yes I have bad wheel luck. Any advice on 16 inch wheels. I just bought new tires and want to stick with 16 inch.

    Your not paying for the new wheels are you?

    I would stick with the Ivans, they are awesome.

    Those wheels must be made of some pretty soft aluminum :mad:

    Any idea on the direction you want to go next? Something chrome? aluminum? black? silver?
