Hiya Gents,

I just recently did a complete suspension refresh on my 92 RRC and it is time to move on to the wheels and tires. I looked into having the current wheels refinished, but for the cost of refinishing, I can have brand new wheels delivered to me from the UK. Looking for input and pictures of your favorite RRC wheel. I plan to put 255 70 16 tires and the vehicle all not be driven off road and would give preference to a wheel that is better at accommodating larger tires.Just started my search and looking at the boost alloy, tornado alloy and deep dish alloy.

Look forward the pictures and your input to move this project further. Many thanks in advance for your input.

I would stick to the 3-spoke wheels but I do like the CSK 5-spokes

For a SWB the TWR is the best looking (and historically correct) wheel. That's what I have on my RRC - they were factory. I love the Cyclones as well, but I don't know if they will fit the size tire you want to use.

Cyclones:

Yeah... I hate Cyclones with unexplainable passion. Recently gave away a set.

Thanks to all for the input. Love the TWR, would anyone happen to have the part#?

The cyclones I was looking at are a bit different (tornado cyclones). Here is the link: https://www.lrparts.net/tornado-allo...scovery-1.html

Not sure they are still available new. A friend of mine is selling a truck that has a set and he might be willing to part with them separately. Let me know if you're interested and I can connect you.

Tornado and Cyclone are different wheels.
Cyclone was nearly only used on NAS 95 Classics, Tornado - on 97-98 NAS D1 and ROW Defenders.

I've got 5 chromed 3-spokes and 5 Cyclones I will be happy to get the heck outta' my garage.
I've got a '90 SWB with the NATO Wolf 6.5" wheels with 235/85-16 Cooper SST Pro's. It doesn't handle as well as running stock 3 spokes with Goodrich MT T/A KM's 245/75-16's.

My '00 RR had Hurricanes.
FFS, what's with the windy wheels?
Did they make a Gentle Breeze?
