Default Input on aftermarket wheels

This is a very "Duramax Forum" question, but here it goes. I'm buying wheels for my LML. The factory 20's have run their course. I'm stuck between the Fuel Triton and RBP Atomic.

I was curious if anyone had experience with either company or their products? I don't know anyone that has had either company's products, and I don't want to fly in blind without some research.

Fuels are extremely popular wheels. Personally haven’t heard anything bad about them. RBP IMO were some of the first to pioneer the big wheels on the diesels. But they were so expensive not many people went for them. They’ve dropped in price but still nowhere near as popular as fuels

I've had several sets of fuel wheels, all good. No issues to date, I'm running 22x9.5 on my 16 LML. Love those wheels...

I appreciate the input y'all! The Fuels were my initial choice but I recently read a couple bad reviews. It's good to hear positive reviews.

Forces seem to be very popular around these parts. So popular that the sota guys had these t-shirts in their booth at hunting for horsepower last year. I should have bought one cuz my buddy from work has a huge boner for forces lol.

Most of the guys I know have Fuel wheels, and haven't heard any complaints from them. I personally like the look of Fuel Beast D564.
