Default eaton wheels...

Does anyone know anything about them? I know they're handmade to order, but that really means nothing. How durable are they? How well do they perform? Thanks y'all

I googled it to see what they were all about and they were talking about them on Pirate4x4. Seems they are street-locks, but in the real bead lock department, they are kind of low-end.

Pretty much any company carries a good steel wheel....Pacer (I like this brand), Mixkey Thompson, summit, pro comp, black rock, american racing, etc. Basically ALL of these compainies have the same exact wheels with a few variances.

To the best of my knowledge Eaton makes some of the most indestructible bead lock wheels on the market. The street locks are really no different than any other cheap steel wheels.
