Method Wheels??????

Anyone here have any experience with Method Wheels???

I was interested in them until I talked with the company and found out they are cast in China. Now I'm not so sure I want them.

What other wheels are you considering? Just about all aftermarket wheels are cast in China unfortunately.

I have them on my Raptor and have had no issues. Most rims are made in China followed by India and Mexico. Even the companies that claim to be US made it`s their top of the line and not the whole line of rims that they offer that are US made. You need to contact each company to find what rims were made here if any.

Thanks fellas!

I'm just curious if any body has had issues with them on their SD trucks due to the torque and weight when towing.

They seem to make a good product. I think they look great. I just want to know they will hold up. I know the are made by a company that races them in the desert, so I assumed they would be fairly sturdy.

I was looking at the American Force wheels, but I want an 18 in wheel. I did notice they are offering 20x9 now.
