I had 18x9 in the MM 950's. I loved them but wanted to go with 20's. I think I'm over it now and want to go back to 18's... I might just go back to MM's.

I had a buddy with those rims and they started to pit after a little over a year. He wasnt really good about washing them after snow storms, but he still cleaned them often enough that they shouldnt have gone south so fast.

I've decided to go with the xd series spy 797 chrome finally. Just got to decide if I want to go 17 or 20.

I went with 18's because of price of tires. 18's are cheaper than 20's. 20's look awesome but they dont leave enough sidewall when running 35's to keep tire chains from beating the hell out of the rims. That was my logic.

My 2007 came with moto metal wheels when teh original owner bought it brand new. When i got it in 2011, one wheel has peeling chrome and all wheels are pitted.

Hmmmm, I had mine for a few years and never any problems with them. I sold them to a buddy of mine who has them on an Excursion and other than brake dust, still no problems...

I was looking into the same rims for my truck.. I was going to do the 20x9.. the price of the tires doesn't bother me to much.. Now I'm a little worried about the pitting!
