    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.
    They are a great wheel and the first/only wheel Iíd look at aftermarket on a Jeep or truck!

    Running 14 miles without a tire to win a rally race tough enough for you?

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.
    I first heard of Method wheels from desert racer Greg Foutz. He said they are legit and many race teams are running their wheels(see above). Iíd take method all day over the procomp. Regardless of paint issues.

    Picture of the Method wheel used on the rally car. confirmed speeds in excess of 100mph with a shredded tire.

    Two weeks ago I had someone run a red light and total my Jeep, knocked the drivers side rear wheel and axle shaft out of the Jeep. That Method NV305 wheel didn't break or even loose air pressure.



    The drivers side front tire was hit by the car, dismounted the tire but did not break the wheel.



    I intend to run beadlock wheels on my next Jeep. I wouldn't hesitate to run Method wheels again or to recommend them.

    Desert Race Driver personally recommended them, even though he was not sponsored.
    Running 14 miles of a rally race on wheel alone, finished first!
    First hand experience of method wheels after and accident that totaled their Jeep.

    Do you have any experience from other wheels that can match the testimonies of the Method Wheels?
