    Weld Commando wheels

    - The Ultimate 4x4 Wheels; Weld F1

    - Tough FORGED One -Piece Alloy Wheels

    - Handles up to a 44 inch tire with ease

    - 100% CNC machined

    - Up to 3200 load rating per wheel

    - Polished finish

    - 8", 10", and 12" widths

    I think these will look good with a set of 37" BF Goodrich KOs wrapped around them. Weld's current ad shows these with 40" tires and mounted on a yellow H2.

    I'm thinking about switching because they are much easier to keep clean than polished wheels.

    Sigh... OK, back to square one. I think I spend to much time in front of the computer because I didn't even notice that it said polished. I believe only the Weld Evo wheels are chrome. I thought I saw a listing for these in chrome and the picture looked that way.

    Any recommendations on a good looking "offroad" style wheel in chrome? The Helos look pretty good but I'd like something along the lines of the Commando or the American Eagle 102s that I'm running now. I'm going to go down to 17s for a better tire selection. I'd like to use 37x12.5x17 BFGs. At that point it will be time to swap to 4.56s.

    This is just like performance mods, it's never ending :)

    I found the ad last night. The wheels looked chrome in the picture and I saw Evo when I scanned through the info so I thought they were chrome. I still like the looks of this wheel but I had a set of Boyd's on a Suburban a few years ago. They also looked good but it was way to much work to keep them looking that way.

    If you like them so much why not look into getting them cleared. I know Intro wheels has been doing that and they are happy w/ it.

    Use that ZOOP stuff. It seals the wheels so they are easier to clean. And they stay polsihed.

    I would'nt use it. I heard it wears off, cracks and gets "yellow" after some time.

    No, that h2 isnt even lifted, even tho the ambiguously gay ad says "OFFROAD SUSPENSION WITH 8" LIFT"...whatever OFFROAD suspension means. Those STS are probably 35s.

    I have concluded that h2s are and so are any ads pertaining to them. So are fat guys that try to look diesel.
