Default Someone Needs To Buy These

Hey guys I think someone should buy the new dick cepek dc-2's so I can see what they look like lol! But in all seriousness heres my problem, im going to have ebough money here in the next few weeks to buy either new rims which I badly need with stock alloys or new tires. I know most of you will say just wait and buy both at the same time, but I really want the dc-1's and heres hardly any new still left for sale because as most know they stopped making them. So I was just going to buy them and wait and get tires here in a month or 2. Now my 2nd problem is my tires I have now wore badly and have some cut out in 2 of them causing vibration issues and have like 25,000 miles on them (from previous owner) so I would really like to just get some 32x11.5 on my stock rims and just when I have the money to buy new rims, switch them over to the new 15 inch rim. But as previously mentioned I am wanting the DC-1's and there aren't much left and I dont think if I like the new dc-2 enough to wait! any opinions on what I should do???? Also if anyone finds any pictures of dc-2's on a ranger def post them up. I tried goodle'n but no rangers came up and really hardly any trucks did just because they are so new. but thanks for the help guys, Zach.

In all honesty I would skip on the DC-1's and get Dc-2's

The Dc-1's have design flaws and the clear coat will crack. Only way to possibly prevent it is to add a o-ring behind that bolt to keep it from bottoming out.

Dc-2's are identical to Dc-1's minus the bolt around the outer edge

What color is your truck?

its white. I was going with a look like silver's truck. Beens mines an xl I have all black pieces and I think the white and black with alil bit of chrome just looks so good mmhm. but obviously from the post above im ina bind. I honestly thought that the new dc-2's aren't as concave and more flat not quite as deeply curved in giving a more muscular better appearance which I think would look better. But its really hard to tell from just the DC website pictures and really hard to compare the 2 unless there on the same truck side by side shot you know, maybe im wrong about them being flatter appearance or w.e but thats just what I thot. If all that makes sense lol

yeah thanks silver but which should i do. buy the rims bd teir gone and havta wait to get tires for em for a month or 2 or buy new tires and get the dc2's in a month or 2 whem the dc1 will b gone??? also i noticed the 15x8 dc2 is 30 dollers more then 15x10. y does a smaller im cost more money right now? is it just because they made the 10 wide first and theres hardly any 8 wides. only jegs has the 15x8 but like 8 places have 15x10 in dc2???

I just went to that like STL and I do realize that the links said dc-2 but every single picture of each rim isnt the dc-2, its a picture of the dc1. Notice the bolts on the outside ring and center round cap instead of the black rugged center of the dc-2. I gues they just might not have the picture up of the dc-2 but I was just making you aware of that and make sure that they are dc-2 price. Zach

yeah I will. Is that the place you recommend buying from? Where did you buy your rims from? Also if anyone finds any pictures of the dc2's on some trucks feel free to post them. Thanks, Zach.

yeah thanks man, do you like them as good as the dc1's? Im more of a fan of the old style center cap but owell. Someone should photoshop this to white so I could see how they look on a white truck with black bumpers

If your tires are about done and causing vibration...Think Id get the tires first. That would be a bitch to have 8 wheels and 3 tires if one blew.
