I hate concave wheels. I like flat. So I bought flat.
Thanks for the replies guys. Sounds like it's just personal preference, not some design flaw (other than cosmetics to some) with the stock wheel options. Cheers!
Personally I really like the look of the OEM 19 bead locks (I don’t like the other option) and made sure I found a truck with them. They are forged and I like the look so will not be swapping. That being said if the current beadlocks weren’t available I’d switch

The 2017-2018 forged bead lock capable rims are ugly.

They are now that the 19s are out.

I much prefer the '17-'18 bead lock wheels to any aftermarket wheels, with the former being forged AL, not having to worry about offset and rubbing.
I think the '19 bead locks look like car wheels.
Easy answer- pretty much everyone w/ a gen2 raptor falls into 2 categories- the “gotta have it” latest & greatest guys who simply always have an itch to be in the hottest/“best” ride on the market & the “gear head” utilitarian off-roading do everything group that wants a raptor for the combo of capability & practicality, use it, & always looking to improve upon it.
These 2 demographics comprise the majority of Raptor owners IMHO, & what both groups - & all Raptor paneers really - have in common is relatively deep pockets & a penchant for nice shit.
W/ only 2 wheel
Choices from the factory & a gazillion places happily supporting the Raptor mod bug swapping wheels is a good way to set your truck apart from the crowd & show you got $$$$ lol
That’s my basic take on it anyhow
I agree! Having a higher disposable income makes it easy to buy a set of wheels. When I changed mine I even changed the spare. The people I bought them through acted like I had I third eye. I just have a thing against not being complete. Having that bastard child under the bed would drive me crazy.
Because the stock ones look like snow flakes and the offset it horrible. I put bead locks on mine at stock width with no offset..the stock forged ones are nice but to bead lock them the wheels end up an inch wider, thus shortening your tire.
I have the bead lock factory ones in the black and silver rim ring. I want to get the lug nuts in black if anyone knows where I can find them. But otherwise I do like the looks and wait until I need new tires and probably buy different ones!
