Ok...opinions needed

Alright, I've been scouring the internet trying to find a rim that I actually like for my 2003 F350 SRW. I finally found one by Eagle Alloys that I really liked, but they have no stock on it in chrome like I want and cannot tell me when there will be more available....best they could tell me was 6 or more weeks.

This is the rim I wanted to get:



So I have been on the hunt for a replacement for it. I am looking for an 18" chrome rim with the needed 4.5" back spacing.

So far I have come to find this that I kinda like:



And also this that is growing on me, but not as much as the one above



I can also get a set of Dick Cepek DC-1's for a really good price as well:




Soooo....which one would you go with?

There was one particular Eagle wheel I was in the hunt for a few weeks back, and of course, they were on backorder, and couldn't tell me when they would be back in stock. I ended up going with another brand. I was told by a wheel vendor, which indeed sells Eagle, that their chrome finish isn't very good. That's just what he told me, so I don't know if there is any truth to that. He said it was a good thing that I went with something else, so as to save myself the headache of dealing with it. Take it for what its worth.

The wheel third down is real similar to the Moto Metals. Good looking wheel.

Well apparently all of the wheels I choose are either out stock or back ordered.

I ended up going with this wheel, should be here in the next couple days.

Its so strange that just about all of Eagle's wheels are backordered. Kinda makes me think the company is in bad shape, like they have all their workers laid off.

Yea, I didn't really believe it so I call their direct number to Eagle Alloys and talked to them myself....seems most are out of stock and they could not tell me when they would have stock on them again. Best he could tell me is try calling back in 6 weeks.
