Strongly considering getting some BMF Novakanes for my LMM. I live in the Rockies so the truck sees snow during the winter and I work for an oil company that requires me to sometimes take some lease roads. Also, I bought a 4x4 to use it...hunting, fishing, etc.

I have found a set of 4 that are availabe for my truck. 20x9, 0 offset and I'll be running 285/55-20 Nitto AT's.

How are they holding up for those that actually use your trucks?

c.jenkins can you post some pics of their current condition?

I'm either going to go with 20x9 Ultra Predators or 20x9 'Kanes

Mine had the black/machined finish (not like chases) an they scratched horrible, truck would sit there and the sand that blew into then would scratch them (truck wouldn't even move) and it scratched..I sold them to get something that was coated better..

They look awesome, but for the price I wouldn't buy them again..unless it's a pavement queen you will be disappointed!!

I had the same problem...I almost bought a set but heard horror stories on scratching, people having to repolish all the time, etc.. so I said to heck with them..for that price I want something that can take a beating. I will say I've been pretty happy with my fuel wheels.

Just got a qoute on the Novakanes... 4 shipped are pricey. I expected that though.

I also got another qoute on the Ultra Predators with tires for $2400 shipped. Think I'm gonna pull the trigger on them instead.

I was told recently that they BMF is going to produce the Novakanes later next year in the 17" size. Hope that is true as I have always liked the look, but just not a big fan of 20" wheels. That should help the price too.

Well I didn't buy the Kanes....I pulled the trigger on some 20x9 Ultra Predators with 285/55-20 Nitto Terra Grapplers.

I'll start a new thread and post pics when I get them on.
