16x7 US Aftermarket Alloy (non-LR)

In the never-ending search for a simple, cheap, aftermarket , US made alloy wheel:

Eagle Alloys now has a rover-pattern wheel: 0589-7791: 16x7 5x165.1 ET: 8

Anyone have any experiences with this?

Would look sufficiently generic as an 8-hole wheel with the center cap removed.

why not just buy a set of used "lr freestyle" wheels. i bet you can find 5 of them for $300 or less?

I have freestyles, I'm just looking for alternatives. Could be a pointless exercise, I understand.

another reason is that freestyles don't allow you to remove halfshafts without removing the wheel. small thing, but something.

Not a small thing to me, particularly on trail.

I've had friends with good experiences with Eagle Alloy wheels. I'm not a huge fan of the polished look, but its a nice looking wheel.
