I would have bought one except the dealer wants over $100 for one

if someone had a good used set they wanted to sell for a good price i would buy them.

Replace them with two stronger wheels like .190 thickness most itp wheels are this thickness. Stock rims aren't that strong, dwt red label rims are tuff and cheap

And any feedback Mandy? Do you like them? Are they really lighter than stock? Fit and finish?

This will help out the original poster...

I have 2 front rims in the black and those will be the wheels I replace them with from now on. They are strong wheels and havent bent one yet. I usually bend wheels bad because of the sand/rocks behind my house to. I don't know about the being lighter part but the black looks BA. I had bought the lugnuts that had the tapered washer but they wont work with these wheels just buy the tapered lugs is the way to go.

Reason i didnt recommend douglas's depending on where you ride i tacoed one front and one rear brand new rims .190's. The stockers seemed to take a beating. But switched to hipers after the douglas ruined my riding trip.
yeah i get what your saying but everyone i know who runs them hasn't bent them and we dont ride slow its pinned everywhere we go and no one is running stock cause we trashed them long ago. you can bend any rim if you try or you aren't that paying attention where your tire is going. the stockers are like .160 or weaker. if you need stronger than .190 then you need renforced rims or baed locks or bajas with the rings
