Looking good.

Rather then start a new thread, I figured this is as good a place to make this post as any.

My Centerline rims have finally reached the end of their life span and they are starting to give me problems.

After 6 years of use on 2 different Jeeps, I've had 2 of them develop minute, hairline cracks on me in the last 6 weeks and wound up having to get them tig-welded almost completely around the entire circumference of the rim. This was on a line where the manufacturer, apparently, had milled too deeply.

Over time, with stress & wear, the area that was milled too deeply, slowly started to separate and eventually a very small, pinhole/hairline crack developed.

While they are working fine now after being tig-welded - it's just a matter of time before the other 2 crack and I don't need to be worried about my rims failing under stress - or worse yet, under load.

So, as much as I love them, they are going to have to go.

I'm leaning towards ordering a set of these in the next week:

I can get a set of 4 for $700.00 and free shipping, that's pretty reasonable. I think they will look good - and more importantly, I they are better suited for the wear & tear I'll be exposing them too.
