No experience with the hutchinsons, but I have had Walker Evans and I plan on getting another set soon for my 110. If interested let me know we can order custom backspacing and in any finish you want. As for the Hutchinson's a good friend is talking about putting a set on his 110 DC with portals, I'll let you know how it drives next year at Moab

i didn't conventionally balance them due to the fact there heavy and while wheeling more likely going to throw a weight off.
check out pics on my page around 2014 when i put them on

For balance I was think that it would be best to use stick on weights on the inside...

Thanks for the info

Seamless AirSoft pellets work good for balancing, too.

not for beadlock wheels, the balancing beads are typically the recommend for for balancing them. If you do their non beadlock then traditional way is the way to go.

The Wheel is (in my opinion) very affordable for the quality. I picked one up for the first time yesterday and damn they are heavy. I planned on mating it with a 37 inch tire on my roof rack and might need to re imagine a way to lift it. That being said, there is no way I am using anything else.

They are very high quality items.. I've been impressed with the Jeek JK ones that i have seen (mounted and apart)

A bit like when i Ran BBS motorsport E88 magnesiums on my 964 Cup

I've ran a set on a 95 RRC and just love them....I've aired down to nothing numerous times without issue. Just bought another set for a D90 I am building up currently. With Nitto Tires I just have weights added to the inside.....even though I know the balance gets whacked the first time I go off-road. I do rotate my tires but never re-balance.....I just don't overthink the balancing part.
