I'd go with that mad wheel because its a single plane 11 blade wheel which means there is more surface area to move the air.

We've had great luck so far with customers putting in our billet wheel and being able to tell a noticeable difference in the performance of the truck. Now I don't think the difference is earth shattering but they report that it is a nice subtle difference. I've heard some good things about the Wicked Wheel. I can tell you that there is very little difference between the two. I know we sell our wheel for $230 shipped. I'm not sure what theirs goes for. Let me know if you have any questions on our wheel(s) and I'll do what I can to answer them for you.

I'm not expecting anything outrageous just want a little extra from my stock turbo. Nate could you explain qny differences in the wicked wheel and the mad single plane if any? Maybe explain some gains people are seeing in the wheels? Thanks

I can only speculate on the differences. I do know (from the pictures that I have seen) that the Wicked Wheel is a 14 blade dual plane wheel (7 big blades and 7 small blades) where our 04-07 stock replacement wheel is an 11 blade single plane wheel (all the blades are the same size). From what I can tell by looking at the pictures, I believe our wheel is just as tall as the Wicked Wheel but with the different blade configuration.

Most gains noticed with our wheel is a little better low end throttle response and seat of the pants power with about a 50-100F drop in EGTs. Haven't heard any reports yet on fuel economy or anything else. Some seem to think it spools faster, I don't know as I haven't ran one. Hope this helps a little more.

Pros and cons of dual and single plane wheels?

A single plane wheel is going to have a smaller RPM range in which they'll flow air. They usually work best down low to flow more air and build boost quickly. Then once they get spinning they'll have more rotating resistance than a dual plane wheel will. It is my opinion that since we have such a narrow rpm window, we won't really spin the motor fast enough to see the benefits of a dual plane wheel flowing more air up top out weighing the awesome versatility of the single plane wheels.

This is about all I have to say on the subject. Much more discussion than this is merely going to just lead to conjecture about wheel design.
