Re: Detroit Steel Wheels

Hasn't US Mag been making a couple of versions of these for a few years?

Re: Detroit Steel Wheels

Yes, an alloy version which are also killer. However, you'll get a set of Detroit Steels for the cost of 1 wheel from US Mag.

Re: Detroit Steel Wheels

Those are definitely a nice version of their steelies. I'm really surprised they haven't pumped out a whole range of options for these wheels. Their plain steelies are cool but are already really played out.

I agree.
If you zoom in on the picture,... the center of the wheel looks like it has the "dual drill" double bolt pattern, like all the other Mobsteel wheels.
But if you look close,... the stock center cap doesn't quite cover the larger bolt pattern.

I noticed that too. You are right about that. The other pic I saw shows they are dual bolt pattern. The fit and finish around the center cap is a bit rough for my liking. Be nice if the center cap fit more precisely to the rim but probably not possible because of being dual pattern

The five bolt version with the stock center caps

Prices for the 18" 5 Lugs?
Tempting upgrade.

Has anyone seen a price list or backspacing options? Looking to purchase a set for my Suburban.

Re: Detroit Steel Wheels

Very interested if they'll be cheaper then the US Mags version ($$$).

I emailed them for pricing on:
rear 20 x 11
front 20 x 8

or

rear 18 x 10
front 18 x 8

I understand they are priced the same as their artillery line.

US Mags Sierra is a forged aluminum wheel costing upwards of $900/ea. This is steel. Apples v oranges.

This is excellent news. I assume the prices above don't include the center cap.

Those look like old Mopar Ralley wheels. Who wants that on a Chevy?

Re: Detroit Steel Wheels

Just spoke to MS on the phone. They wheels are ready but they still need to address the issue of mounting a factory truck center cap. As stated above, the wheels are multi-lug and due to the extra holes, there currently isn't anyway to bolt the factory center cap to the wheel. Sooooo the wait continues....Hopefully they can figure this out pretty quickly, as I would love to have a set of these for my Suburban.

Don't forget beauty ring @$60 apiece, center cap @$50 apiece, paint or powder coat $150??, + shipping. I would guess around $1800 for a complete set shipped. Still alot cheaper than US Mags.

Re: Detroit Steel Wheels

I like these wheels well enough and especially if the wheel can fit the original dog dish hubcaps - (though I realize that is not yet the case with these without modifications).

I still use my truck mostly as a truck though and on occasion will travel to the brickyard and pick up a cubic yard of some sand or granite aggregate or clay bricks or pavers.

So I wonder what the load rating is on these wheels - I hope it will be at least what is stated on our OEM load capacity tag..(though I don't recall that figure for a C-10 with HD rear springs.. guessing 1,100 lbs.? (why they call it a half-ton?)

I'm not sure specifically on the load rating for these, but I'm sure it's more than enough to do some hauling. I've seen quite a few people hauling stuff with their plain steel wheels. I'm running transits which are very similar in construction and they are DOT approved (as are the Mobsteel wheels) and I haul stuff all the time no problem. The wheels are constructed in a very similar fashion to the stock wheels on our trucks. Much more important than the wheels ability I think is making sure your low profile tire is up to the task.

Their other rims can be drilled and tapped to allow dog dish caps. Iíd assume these are the same. My plan is to run these eventually. My money tied up in a complete suspension upgrade and brake swap.

My plan is to run without the beauty rims, thankfully I have a set of dog dish caps to use. Iím 6x5.5 and want to run a staggered rims so my options are pretty limited without breaking the bank.

18x8 rims $279 each
20x9 rims $288 each
Powder coat $140 per set
Drill and tap for dog dish cap $15 each

$1334 plus tax. Not bad I guess. US Mags I price at above $900 each plus caps, taxes and shipping. I canít afford that.

Shipping will kill me though. Iím in Canada and a long way from Detroit.

What I do is have US items shipped to the boarder, Montana in my case. There are companies there who will receive your shipment and hold it for a couple dollars per day. You take a drive down to the US boarder, pick up your stuff, pay duty and GST en route back home. Save a lot on shipping, especially with Summit and others who offer free shipping within the US.

The drive isn't worth it for small dollar items, but is for stuff like this.

Thatís probably what I will do. We use Plentywood Package Service or Curtiss Farm Equipment (also in Plentywood).

My sister lives in Ontario so there might be some option there. Sheís only about 1.5 hrs from Detroit
