[quote=jeepbrattt;3077938]They hold air great,very impressed with the locks. I just got a new set of H2's and had the rock rings welded on in hopes of them lasting a bit longer.....been out what 4 times? Pretty much ground the teeth off one of the rings and the edges are still getting sharpened by the rocks. That was my reason for getting rid of the last set, pretty much were knifes at certain places. No more aluminum on my rig. Concerned about taking a good bounch at low pressure and slicing the tire.

They are not aluminum. They are a secret space age material.............

What kind of steering issues on the Excursion? I've been having some issues lately and I can't figure out what is going on.
