Besides the look, anything special? Which Isuzu truck came with it? Where can I find these to purchase? 16" vs 15" beside the looks, I know 15" are lighter, but not by much? Is it better to go off-roading with the 15" or 16", I have no idea. I've read that the 1st gen Troopers came with the 15" snowflakes. The specs for the those two sized wheels are the same right? offset? bolt pattern?

Snowflakes are just sort of retro-cool...other than that they are not really anything special as wheels go.

When you can have retro cool AND original equipment why not? That, and you can pick them up cheaper then most any aftermarket wheel.

The backspacing and size is also very convenient...also they are light weight.

have a set on my 91 rodeo as original equipment

with my 97 rodeo, I gave up looking for a nice affordable set of the snowflakes, so I bought these and for a set of 5 with being a 16x8 wheel for $250, couldn't complain. Actually like them better for the 16" tires cause it gives the 265/75 tire a wider stance then the 15x7 snowflake wheels do with the 31x10.5 15 tire on the 91 rodeo.

Got these at discount tire over 5yrs ago

I just bought 265x75x16 tires for my stock Trooper wheels, so i'm out of the loop for the 15x7 snowflakes. I think someone found 5 snowflakes down at a Florida JY and is selling it for $300, only thing that would stop me from buy them is the shipping cost. I am no rush to replace my wheels, unless it's a good deal. I want to save up for a custom exhaust system.
