    Method Wheels Quality

    So I've been browsing wheels, and I kind of dig the new Method 312...
    https://www.methodracewheels.com/col...12-matte-black



    Now I know with wheels, some giant company owns a bunch of brands, but I dont know much about wheels for Jeeps/Trucks, etc, so any thoughts and opinions would be appreciated.

    Not sure I’ve heard of a wheel cracking like the pintlers. Not have they done that in years.

    Haven't heard of anyone complaining about them or at least, not that I know of.

    Gotcha. I was looking at KMC and google also spit out method, and it *seems* like ATX, KMC, FUEL, and METHOD are all owned by some huge wheel company (pure speculation)

    KMC and ATX are both owned by WheelPros. I don't think they own Fuel or Method though.

    From whose website? TA doesn't own Method as far as I am aware.

    I ran methods in past and they worked great. Never an issue. I wouldn't hesitate to run them again.

    Could be anyone’s website, doesn’t matter. Posted on the internet, it’s true.
