    Hey guys,

    Im looking to buy new Rims and Tires. I like the Chrome bullits on American Muscle but they seem a little too cheap. I would like your guys opinion. Are they good rims and are they not too heavy.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    because chrome plating something equates to making it heavy.

    yeah i realize that but isnt it only a fraction of an inch thick? its obviously gonna be heavier than just aluminum but by a noticeable amount?

    yeah i'm just curious how much heavier a chrome plated aluminum rim is compared to just a pure aluminum rim of the same size.

    i wouldn't say its that much to keep you from buying them.

    O and that company has good rateings and the only neg was the responce time of the company not any on the product and the one that did didn't install right lol.

    Well, orignally in the start of this thread, you were thinking of buying DD Chrome Bullitts.
     
  16. I am not happy with the way AM treats its customers...

    In a nuttshell... they treat their customers like shit and don't give a rats ass about you...

    I plan to buy wheels from them because of the price, free shipping, free tire mounting, good quality, and they are an SN95forum sponsor...

    But I'm gonna watch them very closely and keep detailed records...

    Cause if I have a problem... They ain't going to do jack shit about it and I will end up taking them to court...
