Love the Welds. Don't paint the centers IMO. Billet, and a good looking wheel. Those need to be polished at all times.

Thank you sir. I'm pretty sure they're forged, but not billet. Centers are welded to the rim.
My acceleration improved, I think this combo is lighter than the chrome 14's and toyo 195's.
Wheel weighs 24 and tire 20 iirc. Diameter should be damn close to stock.
They're not spotless, but a solid 5fter if you ask me lol.
I need to try out this powerball then some meguiars cleaner wax

You'll appreciate this, I picked up some decent studded tires someone put by the road. Craigslist stars aligned and sold those for $80. Same day bought the Welds all corroded with haggard tires for $50 from another guy, he said I'm the only one that called lol

I believe they're still billet, but someone can correct me if I'm wrong. Most companies mill the faces, but still mass produce the hoops and weld them in according to the ordered offset.

No expert myself, I had read that billets are machined from 1 solid chunk (billet) of aluminum.

Switching over to the flush solid back window, here's the slider.


Here's the junkyard window and seal waiting to go in. I used paracord to pull the seal, strong and slick. I wedged cardboard between the cab and bed and laid more on the bed cause I was by myself.


New window in, piece of cake.


What's a cherry og Nissan slider window worth? Rubber is good and the sliders are tight, tooth on the latch was broken. I had a zip tie I could pop on or off of it.

love how easy those back windows are. Id say your old one is worth at least 50 but maybe 60 or 80 USD.

I'm happy with it. Doesn't stick out, slightly more secure, easier to tint
