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

    That’s a quote from Transamerican Auto Parts’s web site. I have no reason to doubt it.

    To doubt what? The question was about Method wheels and that quote says nothing about Method. I'm lost now

    I apologize for the confusion. I didn’t intend to say anything about Method. I just found it interesting that so many of our well known brands are in fact owned by a single entity. (I did title my post “Off topic” :-)

    Indeed is crazy when you follow the paper trail. I've been pretty shocked myself how many companies hide behind labels and terms, but when you get down to the nitty gritty, it's just a piece of shit in a gold plated box.

    Little late to the party here but I figure I'd put my 2 cents into this thread. I had Methods on my Raptor for about 3 years and they didn't hold up well at all. The ring discolored shortly after I bought them and the finish was easily scratched off road. I felt the design was flawed in that there was always a pool of water collected on the inside rim by the fake beadlock. It didn't really bother me, but I'm sure it would annoy some people.

    I've owned several ProComps and always been happy with them. I think I'm going stick to ProComp for inexpensive wheels from here on.

    My Procomps had rings that discolored easily, and the fake bead lock held water.

    One of the ProComps I owned had a fake beadlock but didn't hold water. The black finish on the center part of the wheel didn't discolor like the Methods I owned. The painted black center portion of the Methods were dark gray after three years. The paint application just seemed thinner thatn the ProComps. I think at the end of the day all the inexpensive imported wheels are going to suffer from inconsistencies in quality due to poor quality control standards. All the wheels served me well. In other words, I never had any balancing issues, cracked wheels or compromised integrity of the wheel itself. Just finish and cosmetic items.

    I like both the standard and upgraded wheels on the Rubicon JL model. This is the first time I like the stock wheels on a Jeep since the TJ Rubicon classic 5-spoke star.

    I am actually really digging the dirty life 9303s, and I like their unique wheel design, allowing the wheel to be run in a real beadlock or a faux beadlock setup, all on one wheel. I’m waiting to see that wheel mounted on a JL but there is a very good chance those will be my wheels of choice
