    Thanks, I’d love to get out that way again. We stayed in Frisco some 20 years ago for a family reunion. I remember visiting Breckenridge and thinking I could live in a town like this. I can’t afford to live IN one, but I do live next to one! That trip was actually my first taste of real off roading. Being from west central MN we didn’t have much for trails near by. Now I love being 10 minutes or less from a trail in any direction!

    Sorry your thread got a little sidetracked after I chimed in, I think it turned out very well.

    lololololol if people would just say up front "i'm too cheap to choose the better option" or "i just want this wheel that looks cool to me" then there would be no debate. Defending ones choice with nonsensical feelings starts the cycle. The bmw wheels don't even have the ideal offset apparently.

    *Tell you one more thing about land rover wheels, and I think i read same on the expensive alternatives mentioned: the LR wheel is designed with a bead holding groove that is supposed to hold the tire better when low psi are used..... choosing the bmw wheels for off road use is just plain uninformed and unwillingness to recognize why the ones that cost more are actually worth more.

    People put 'other' wheels on various cars all the time but it has no place in this type of forum.

    There are SO many variables traveling, even on our well maintained interstate highways, that I think it is most prudent to eliminate as many as possible rather than introduce more potential problems.
