    Here we go again with all these choices.

    I wanted to stay away from solid black wheels but for some reason I keep getting pulled back to them.

    Anyone have any of Pics these wheels installed or have any opinions on them. My truck is an 09 DC superwhite 4x4.

    1) ATX Thug Black [​IMG]

    3) ATX Chamber teflon

    4) ATX Chamber Pro (not street legal) dammit

    5) XD enduro brushed (curveball away from black)

    Im going to be installing my Camburg COs and UCA's as soon as they get here. Adding deavers in the rear along with 5100s. I want to pick the wheels and throw on some 33" Toyo Open Country MTs at the same time. Thx for any opinions.

    I am afraid if I dont go ahead and spend the cash then the govt may come tax me on something and take it away. So, now I guess they can just come take my truck instead.

    that is my favorite also. But any true beadlock wheel is not for street use or DOT approved. I think its a safety issue as they are not designed for higher speeds. The bolts can back out and the wheel can seperate. It can be a high maintenance wheel.

    I had wondered if that might work. If not it could be an epic FAIL bigtime.

    I can't remember which color is the stronger one, I think it's Blue that never comes loose with out extreme torque.

    bead locks are almost impossible to keep balanced properly though. I think for a DD they would be a pain in the ass for sure. They look tough but I will see how opinions play out before I chose.

    At that angle is looks like those Chamber wheels have no lip to them at all.

    I am less concerned about the legalities about whether the wheel has a DOT stamp or not. If you can get away with it then just about anything is legal in my mind. I suspect 99% of law enforcement doesnt know or doesnt care about the difference. There are alot of fake beadlocks out there so its hard to tell.

    I am more concerned about the wheel coming apart at 80mph and me going offroading in an unwanted way.

    I like the Chamber Pros the best. But, unless they come out with a similiar looking pair of streetlocks I doubt I iwll be putting them on my DD.

    Thx for the input.

    Wonder what a white wheel on a white truck looks like? It would be unique.
