Power wagon rims

Post by loveracing1988 » Sat Feb 07, 2015 2:11 pm

I have been looking for genuine power wagon rims for months now for a good price. I think I found some.

http://detroit.craigslist.org/mcb/pts/4881303349.html

Can someone on here confirm that they are genuinely power wagon rims? I can compare pictures but that is about it.
Thanks

Comparing yours side by side they look identical, are there subtle differences I'm not seeing?

Those are not. They are the regular 3/4 and 1 ton wheels.

Unfortunately those are not PW rims. The spokes on a normal 3/4 ton rim are a lot narrower than those of the PW. Take a look at the size and shape of the hole between the spokes of the different rims. PW's end in a radius and are more triangle shaped, where normal rims are more of a trapezoid and have flat at the hub.

However the price is still pretty good, and besides the PW wheels they are my favorite factory wheel.

OK, this makes sense. I kept flipping the pages back and forth on my phone and they looked identical. It wasn't until they were put into the same post did I see the differences.
If I could tell there were in perfect shape I would buy them anyways. But judging how much brake dust is on there I would guess they are pitted a little bit so I have to decide how much they are really worth. I may try and see how much I can get them for knowing they are not actual power wagon rims.

A couple of years ago I needed another wheel. Found a new one on EBAY for about $140? if I remember. Not a P.W. wheel but it is used in auto repair business. That looks like one. Works fine with correct backspace. It was just an aluminum replacement for 2500 2005-2009 trucks. Price seems fair.

I know it is a good price, but I also saw a set of the same rims that looked brand new for $500, no polishing required and more importantly they were from a southern truck so no salt exposure.

That was what I was thinking people would point out. I didn't know if they had them or not and I figured someone would be able to tell by that.

Thanks! Now I at least know what to look for both inside the rim and out. I have been looking since September and this is the first local set I thought that I had found.

The bead lip on your PW wheel & the one in the craigslist add picture are the same(different wheel/same bead lips), I have spare 2500/3500(SW) aluminum wheels & PW wheels & their identicle bead lips. That's why I bought them, they're a better alternative to mount your spare wheel than the steel. So besides backspacing & appearance, what are the differences?

The original power wagon wheels were a forged aluminum, vs a cast aluminum, like the rest of the dodge fleet. A stronger wheel, and that was one of their selling points. At some point, the started to make them in China, vs the U.S., and lost some of the quality. I think it was '08 they changed the wheels. I know I specifically looked for and found my spares from an '07.

Mmmm...I still think they are nothing too special. I'd rather have some "Hutchies"! I'll sell X1 PW wheel, 2013 new take-off I bought from Dave'r(BigRed2007). Looks like I'm not using X6 like I thought...

I knew they were Alcoa's!! I couldn't remember the name. Maybe nothing too special, but a real good, quality wheel built to last. And light. I'd love some hutchinsons too, but what a weight penalty. I just can't justify that cost and weight!

And iirc sometime in '12 they switched again and started making them elsewhere and no longer sourced them from Alcoa.
