Default Need opinions on wheel quality...

I am finally upgrading my wheels on my 02 Dmax to 20x12. I have narrowed it down to 2 or 3 options. I was curious if anyone could give me some reviews and the wheel finish quality of Scorpion wheels and Monster Energy (same as TIS I believe) wheels. Just don't wanna spend all this money on wheels just to have them look like crap in a couple years.

I don't know anyone using any of those wheels so no comment on finish quality, but I do like tacos.

Honestly I think there a lot of better wheels out there then the ones you picked. Do you truley like those wheels? How much time have you spent looking? So many options out there for you and your truck.

I really think there are much better options out there for rims. And depending on what you plan on running for backspace you may have a hard time clearing any decent sized tires with 20x12's and 4"lift.

Also I did some measuring and talked to several shops and I should be able to clear 35s. Gonna need to do a little bit more fender massaging but not a lot more. I'm already clearing 35x13s and my current wheels have 4.25 back spacing.. Just not as much front lip of course.

No clear coated or gloss wheel is gonna hold up in salt or dirt roads without being knicked or scratched.

I run fuel kranks, I don't give a **** what anyone else has, because my wheels are better just because they're mine anyhow

Don't have a dog in the fight. If I can't tow heavy with a particular wheel style, it's not going on my truck. Haven't managed to break my H2s yet....

I almost got kranks but ended up with fuel crush. I also don't care if anyone else has them I'm getting them for myself.

Their rated for 3500 I believe.
