steel wheels...

can someone please tell me the difference between these two?

http://www.roversnorth.com/store/p-6...-16in-kit.aspx

http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/ANR4583PMA5.cfm

Am I missing something? Pretty big price difference for a wheel that I am guessing is exactly the same.

so you are saying that RN is selling a "genuine" part for less than AB "non-genuine" part?

Rovers North uses their own part numbers for almost everything, even Genuine Parts. There's a Genuine logo next to the wheels.

AB has them on sale every now and then. From CT you would be better off picking them up from either vendor vs. paying shipping.

I just got off the phone with the guys at RN. They said their NATO wheels (Part#:RNW216-5) are genuine and they have the ANR part# stamped into them.

just an fyi

There are two different versions of the genuine wheel tubed and tubless. The AB part number that ends in pm stands for primed metal. Since both pictures are of black wheels assume that the finish on both is primer. There are a number of companys "knocking"these wheels off as an fyi.
