Yeah, I looked at the other ones and I wasn't a fan. The DR-35's...meh... (no offense. ) The 34's were okay, but not for a winter set-up. The rest didn't spark my interest.


Anyways, I called to check up on the order and while on the phone, they ended up splitting the difference to upgrade from a $72/ea steel rim to a $115/ea wheel for $86. I was prepared to shell out the extra $172+tax, but they helped me out.

They wanted me to take the MB Wheel 5 X. Those things are hideous.

I just went for it, said screw it and got the bronze. I'll run them this winter and if I hate them, I just get them powder coated over the summer.

I will say discounttiredirect.com is WAY easier to work with than Tire Rack. I've purchased a ton of stuff from Tire Rack and after this encounter with DTD.com, they'll be getting my business when I buy some summer rims.

BTW - I got out of WNY about 8 years ago. I lived down in the Southern Tier (in the sticks between Jamestown/Salamanca off I86). Even with soem lake effect here in Cleveland...it's nothing compared to what I grew up with.
