    Originally I was gonna buy the Evo Long Arm Kit this month, long story short I spent more than I planned on our family vacation so LA kits has to wait till next month. But I can still buy tires which is what Iím gonna do. Decided on Cooper STT Pro 37x13.50R17. This brought me to look more into wheels. Iíve been looking at running KMC XD229s but a buddy of mine brought up Hutchinsonís Rock Monster. Wanted to see if anyone had run them before or know of someone and what they though of the wheel. Theyíre a two-piece design with an internal beadlock insert that clamps both inner and outer tire beads from what Iíve been reading. They do bring up that theyíre a DOT approved beadlock, but donít care for that. Only about $10-20 price difference between both wheels. A couple specs on each wheel.

    KMC XD229
    Size: 17X9
    Bolt Pattern: 5X5
    Offset: -38MM
    Back Spacing: 3.50
    Weight: 41lbs

    Hutchinson Rock Monster
    Size: 17x8.5
    Bolt Pattern: 5x5
    Offset: - 3.05mm
    Back Spacing: 4.63
    Weight: 44lbs

    I can't stand those bolts on the Rock Monsters. Mind you I have no personal experience, but then again I don't want any either.

    Those KMC Machetes sure are hard to beat aesthetically. They just look so clean.
