They really aren't designed for street use. You can actually bend them without hitting a pot hole or something like that. A steep ramp and turning on the highway can bend them. A couple of guys on here have tried the street version on their trucks and had trouble with them also.

I would be very careful since they were not made for street use. Depending on how the roads are in you're area, just make sure you don't hit pot holes. You will be taking a risk in my opinion but you never know.

The rears you can probably get away with since the tire has so much cushion and flex in the sidewall and the azz end is lighter and not handling as much turning loads, but the front no way. The street versions of bogarts crack, the race versions definitely will fail.

are the fronts on your truck right now bogarts? at Vinnies guys were saying the fronts were centerlines that matched close to the rear bogarts.

Mofos don't know what there talking about lol. Bogarts 17x7 made by rich bogart the center cap is a bogart center cap lol not a center line. Adams truck the sonic blue is a bogart in the rear and a centerline in the front.

I was the "MoFo" that thought the fronts of Redrum's truck were Centerline Split Spoke with Bogart caps. I thought the street Bogarts that Joey had made had failed. Perhaps this is an option after all.

lol, I assumed it was bogarts all around because they looked like a good match front and rear.

My buddy and I used to drive with them on the street all the time. The only ones that cracked were the fronts on my buddy's lightning. Prolly due to speeding over RR tracks and hitting speed bumps a bit too hard. We would just weld up cracks and continue to drive with them. Did it for a few years.
