Upgrade to aluminum wheels?

Just wondering if anyone has upgraded to aluminum wheels?

I hate the fancy hubcap wheel liners for several reasons and am wondering for those that have done this what wheels did you go with? Alcoa or accu-ride?

Any pics?

Thanks

I was mainly doing it for the nice looks of a polished wheel.

My covers always seem to squeak, discolor for steel hardware corroding on wheel undearneath(previous coach) and I'm always cutting my hands and gloves airing up.

I just think it is a cheap look when spending 160k or more on a coach, aluminum should be std.

Well I decided to splurge and put some real pretty wheels on the new coach and I have to say it looks a lot better! Glad I did it!

Here are some pics for you all!

I'm in southeast pa and bought them from a company called service truck tire center. its a truck tire shop chain. several locations. real good people to deal with.

Cost was $1350 for everything including the mounting and balancing.
