2008 fx4 18 inch aluminum wheels

what a joke. i pick out a truck i like with nice LOOKING wheels that turn out to be over glorified hub caps and today i start doing a little spring cleaning on the truck and find out my 3 month old 10,000mi trucks wheels are rusted on the showing steel ring past the aluminum HUBCAP. go to the dealer says i should have been waxing my wheels!(its not like my truck stays dirty i wash it every week and i noticed the rust about a month ago, i just actually started checking it out and its actually starting to bubble) they said its warranty but the wheels are a joke! i told the i'll pay the difference to get the solid alluminum wheels and they say i cant upgrade. so instead i get $1600 junk wheels ordered for me. man that makes me mad it shouldnt be advertised as 18in aluminum wheels if its a stupid hubcap! just venting and rambling.

I replaced my 18's with the factory 20's as well. The Goodyears are a whole lot better in the snow and mud then the stock Bridgestone 18's.

I did the same as you guys. I found a set of factory 20's on craigslist for $1200 and sold my factory 18's for $500. It looks a hell of alot better and the fact I've only got $700 in a set of 20's kicks ***.
