Doug, tires are more readily available for the 15" wheels. I personally didn't like the powder coated wheels because I can touch up the painted wheels, but not powder coated.

www.mrt-wheels.com can give you any backspace you want. 16's or 15's. I use 15x8's. Just make sure they know they are for a Land Rover...the counter sink for the stud holes are 82 degree. Rovertym also has good prices for the lug nuts.

Satin or flat black Rustoleum will match up with some powder coatings.

Yes but you can't build the paint to the thickness of the powder coat, so you still see a divot.

If you are going to run 12.5's, I would get a set of the 15x8 steel wheels from Gulf Coast Rovers, they are backspaced 4.25. I think that they are $55 each + shipping. This will help keep the front's from rubbing while turning

JP, what anyone does to their truck and what it looks like means nothing to me, I just thought in the first post Mark asked for any and all "advice"

I don't mean it as advice as much as just opinion. I just don't think powder coat is all it's built up to be.

What is the advantage of powder coat over paint? I don't think I have ever heard anyone say.

Powdercoat generally tends to be a much more durable finish than traditional paint. Powdercoating is used extensively on moutain bikes because it holds up better than wet paint for example -it wears much better and scratches less.

On wheels, I would suggest wet paint if you ever did want to touch it up.

Sorry Randy, There is in my opinion little advantage to either if you are going to drive on trails that are going to take paint and metal off your rims. You can touch either up with spray paint. I will find a close match and spray it onto a foam brush-and touch up. If you don't touch up - eventually rust will get under the paint. As far as the two paint types go, powder coating is very difficult to strip. It would cost close to the same to strip your rims and repaint-regardless of finish than to buy new ones. Now on bumpers , I still stand behind powder coating. Although this is against popular thinking. JP

Thanks guys, seems like I heard people say they sometimes burn off powder coat to strip it.
