Helo Maxx 8 is a great looking wheel. I went to them on my old 2500 Avalanche. If you can get to an 8, 9, or 10" wide wheel, you will have increasingly better towing stability vs. the factory 6.5" wides.

I am familar with weld wheels in the racing world ( and about 20 miles from house) any strength to the thought they maybe lighter and therefore reduce the rotating mass and help with fuel?..... or am I just splitting hairs at that point......cant gripe same mileage as my 4.7 dakota sport.....havent got an acurate mileage yet only had it a week.....and tonight when i refueled I hit the $75 cut off before full and just couldn't stand swiping again...
