after market 17.5" wheels

After a very long wait for the wheels to make it thru the machine shop and a SNAFU with the shipping I got my Alcoa wheels. I am surprised at how nice these wheels are compared to most sand cast aftermarket wheels. The Alcoa's are forged blanks that are 100% machined on every surface inside outside back side even the holes are machined smooth. I purchased these from Rickson wheel in MD , I was under the understanding it would be about 6 weeks from time of order …….. Well it was closer to 4 months ! But in the end I cant ask for a better high quality product. The factory rated the wheels at 6050lbs and Rickson machined the center hole to accept standard push thru center caps and standard 9/16 tapered seat lug nuts.

Probably a good move, since I've had two Factory installed 17.5 wheels develop slow leaks thru a pin hole in the wheel casting.
