Hello all,
I'm just building my shopping list and was wondering if there are specific brand wheels people prefer or possibly stay away from. I have been looking around and see many brands and wanted to see what people think. Just to get things started and feel free to add other brands but I have seen Douglas Valkyrie, ITP, and STI to name a few. Just looking for information on wheels not tires.

Thanks in advance.

MSA wheels are nice looking and have plenty of styles to choose from check out kJ Motorsports they have good prices on them.

ITP have an excellent warranty on most all their wheels. That’s worth a lot if you happen to bend one.

ITP's warranty is now a Lifetime bend it or break it, we'll replace it free (ONE TIME per wheel ONLY) warranty.. Don't get fooled by their fine print warranty.. Its still great offer, but not nearly as good as it once was. Basically, if you bend your left front wheels twice, you're on your own to replace the second one. I guess you can tell them you bent the left Rear wheel seeing as they're the same. Then next time you'd have to say right rear, then, well you'd have one left..

STI is the same I believe. they're the same company. Also, there is no warranty on Beadlock wheels from STI..


I do like the look of STI HD6 wheels..

So I guess you have four replacements per set.... lol

I think my ITP beadlocks came with a one or two year warranty. That paperwork is still buried deep in a box somewhere.

I also like the MSA wheels and I bought mine from KJ Motorsports who also mounted a set of Bighorn O.G.s to them before shipping them to me. :grin2:

I really appreciate the information everyone is providing. I will have to take a look at the MSA wheels. I was originally looking at the STI and ITP as they seem to be the most common. I really like the look of the STI blade styles like the HD8 (see link) although seeing in person can make a world of difference. I also figure the more solid spoke styles will be easier to clean and less prone to collect rocks and other debris.

If it were me, I’d stick with 12” wheels. Less tire between the ground and the rim affects your overall suspension package.

I suspect an imprinted serial number on the wheel would make it easy to track. I do not know if there are serial numbers on the ITP wheels, just theorizing since cars wheels generally have them... or at least after market ones I've bought. All I know is if that was my company, each wheel would be stamped with a serial number. :smile2:

I've run different sets of ITP over the years and beat the hell out of them with no failures. I like the warranty they provide but I've not had to use it yet. There is definitely better looking wheels out there but I can't speak for how they hold up.
