what's everyone's opinion on the new Sawtooth Alloys?

http://landroverparts.roversnorth.co...h-Spec&key=cat

What I don't get, per wheel, they're cheaper for the set of 4. little under $400 per wheel for 4 but about $450 per wheel when you buy 5. No combo deal?

Look at the ad closer, it's $1959 for 5 = $391.80 each.

Sorry if it's not that clear. The kit prices include the brushed aluminum center caps as well(retail $26.04).

My brother tells me I'm not an alloy kind of guy and my trucks look best with wolfs. Meanwhile he's pimping boosts. Wtf ?

I like the look of the sawtooth and think they are great for street rubber and I'd just need a second setup for off road.

I thought about it. I like the way my d2 drives and handles on 18's. Barry should pimp a set on his street only rig in LA

16" Boosts
16" Wolfs
15" GCR Nuggets
17" Walker Evans

I liked the 18"s on the FlyFisher 110, I believe they were Hurricanes?

Not my style, the Boosts are nice, but a bit overplayed at this point though.
