    I am looking to upgrade my wheels. Has anyone had this done?
    I really like the look of the slim beadlock color matched to the truck.
    Either a Method DS or a M/T Sidebiter.

    I had OMF put rings on some stock wheels back in early 2010... I never did end up running them though... Pirate Air bought them from me.

    Maybe, I'll see what I can find.

    I know OMF's customer service is top notch. One was damaged during shipping when I bought them from Bo. OMF fixed it up for free and quick even though it wasn't there fault nor was I even the original customer.

    Not mine but close to the same. It's DINOONE's old truck

    I like the look of those.
    I think because of the delay, I will go with the aftermarket wheels & my truck won't have to set up on blocks for 3 weeks! :yucky:

    Why don't you just buy ready made beadlock rims or beadlook rims?

    I liked the looks of the stock wheels with the simu locks from OMF. Back then the wheel choice was a lot limited. I also want to keep the stock back space. It's my opinion that the greater offset wheels are increasing the likeliness of bent/broke knuckles do to the added leverage applied to the knuckle.

    You could purchase a set of used take off's to have simu locked then sell yours to recoup the loss once you get the others back.


    Found one of mine mounted. Bo had the rings done in white, but I wasn't feelin it and had it redone in black at a local powder coater.

    I just can't find one that I like the looks of.......
    I really like the sidebiters, except they don't have that lip (beadlock style)
    Methods are nice, but you got to paint the lip if you want to color match & EVERYONE has those!
