I have diamo rims and they are all pitted. I live one 100 feet from the atlantic ocean and the salt air kills the chrome. Granted every set of chrome rims I have had has pitted out eventually but these pitted before the summer even started. I was not impressed with them. I mean these rims arent even old; like less than a year.

I have the other diamo rims and they are impossible to clean. I many angles and ridges to keep clean. Once pitting stats it breaks out liek wildfire lol. Also diamo want you to ship them rims to them on your dime. it would cost 400 to ship them back; then they could deny the warranty. Teh you would ahve to pay to ahve another set shipped to you. Arg I am just using them for winter rims now; lol.

Not far, on your 04 they'll stick out less than that 08 as the axles are wider on the 05+ trucks vs. 99-04.

I dunno. I never owned a set of black wheels besides american racing and truthfully they havent pitted in 8 years. I would bet that I just got a bad set. it happens with every manufacture. If your getting black wheels I woudlnt fret over my review. Just trying to inform you to my experience. Wheels look good though and as long as you dont live basically on a beach liek me I would buy them.
