Alcoa wheels

I have the opportunity to purchase a set of Alcoa wheels for my bus for a great price. I know they way less but would it be worth the time and expense to change them over?

I'd do it in a heartbeat. Losing ~120 pounds of rotating mass will make it easier to get up to speed and more importantly easier to slow down.

DO IT!

I put them on my "MULE BUS" , take a look, way nicer lookin' than steelies. They're off a Pete.

Make sure the beads on the rims are good, they do wear out which makes them scrap.

I will make sure to inspect the beads very close.
