Before I purchased my Gen 2, I got some Gen 3 OEM wheels I was going to put on my Limited. Now that I have a Gen 2 - I was going to put the Gen 3 wheels on it. But now I am having second thoughts, so I thought I would page through the Gen 3 owners thread to make sure I like the Gen 3 wheels and to my surprise there are very few Gen 3 trucks with the standard stock OEM wheels - most have opted for the beadlock capable wheels. It seems more so than the split between standard wheels on Gen 2's v. upgraded beadlock capable wheels.

So what's the deal with the Gen 3 standard OEM wheels - does everyone hate them?

Favorite wheels, like pretty much everything else, are subjective. My 2019 had the base wheels until I bought 19-20 beadlock capable. I really liked those a lot. Now I have the 37 PP wheels and I'm very happy with them. I'm not a fan of many aftermarket wheels, especially those without a center cap. I doubt I'll ever convert to the true beadlocks, but I like the option and the look of beadlock capable over fake beadlock capable.
