    From the looks of your pictures, it looks like your at a discount tire actually and that by what your saying you might work there as well?
    Those are clear-coated? I thought spider-webbing only happened when the wheels were cleared?

    Yes, I work at DTC.

    I haven't seen any of this spider webbing you speak of. I see you are down in CC. Could the salty, coastal air have something to do with it? The only blemishes I have seen are curb rash.

    how nice to be on a forum with a co-worker!
    and definitely the salty corrosive air could have something to do with it, we just started carrying the vortex a little over a month ago, so i have no real results on it, just expectations, basically any wheel with chrome i stay away from. i basically just blame it on the fact that they are cheaper wheels though lol

    I totally agree, but as old as my truck is, I'm not looking to throw large sums of money at it. I want some new wheels but cheap is the operative word. I'm not thrilled that they made in China but the price is right. Hence why I am buying them this weekend. :D

    I like the Torque, but I stick with steel wheels so I am just basing my opinion on the appearance.

    Thanks for all the input guys. I think I am gonna go with my original desire and get the Torques. I think they'll look great with the Duelers on them.

    I wasnt aware we delivered tires to customers doors??? LOL
    but sounds like that DTC has its customer service down good!
    good luck with them, i like the loks of those ATP's, theyre basically the same as the Cooper Zeon LTZ's but for rims smaller than 20".
    lots of good reviews on those tires

    Went and got the Torques yesterday for $380 out the door and I'll be getting $100 of that back in a few weeks.
