Default Pondering trading Alcoas???

Like most of up here, we are never satisfied...lol. I have been thinking about possibly trading my Alcoas for some polished 15X8 MT Classic IIs or the equivilent (Eagles, Pacer, etc...). I know everybody and their brother has them, but I have always loved them. Or if you have another wheel, I may be interested just let me know. My wheels are in great shape so I expect the ones you want to trade to be as well.

With that being said, is ther anyone locally (NC) that might be interested? The Alcoas are in GREAT shape. They are 15X7s for those of you that don't know. They came off of a 2001 Level II. I have cleaned them up (brakedust was awful) and waxed them. All the centrcaps are mint.

Or do ya'll think I should just keep them b/c they look BA on truck?

I vote in favor of trading for polished MTs.

I would go for the MT's. The MT's will be an inch wider and possibly have slightly less backspacing. I have always like the look with the wheels sticking out of the wheel well and the alcoas don't really do that at all.

I'd trade them, too. They're okay, just.....stock.

For whatever reason, everyone seems to get a hard-on over them, so trading them will be easy.

I sure didn't think you'd be getting the itch this soon. I love those Alcoas on your truck, but the 15x8 MT classics would look really good to. Wider would make them stand pop a little more as well.

Why not try selling your wheels, then buy the MT classics off someone who has them? Would have more opportunities to do that than to find someone to trade with.
