Are ARKON OFF-ROAD Lincoln Wheels Good?

For obvious reasons, we’ve got to start with these wheels. This truck is running ARKON OFF-ROAD Lincoln 24x14 -81mm wheels. These big, chrome wheels are perfect for your show build for a handful of reasons. Aside from the wide range of sizes that will accommodate the big lift you might have on your truck, they are also Proper Directional. This adds a seamless flow to your build that you wouldn’t get otherwise.

Proper Directional wheels are wheels that mirror each other on each side of the truck. They “tip” in the same direction, so no matter where you look on the truck, the wheels will be facing the same direction. It represents a high-quality, elite look that other wheels won’t add to your truck.

Plus, this chunky 8-spoke wheel is available in chrome or gloss black with milled spoke edges, so you have the chance to pick the finish option that suits your taste. Even though ARKON OFF-ROAD wheels are not forged, they radiate the same attractiveness and durability of a forged wheel, without the price of one. So if you’re looking for a simple, clean wheel that will compliment any build, consider the Lincoln by ARKON OFF-ROAD.

These tires have a really aggressive tread pattern. They've also got a sturdy sidewall design that’s effective and has great style. The “A”-shaped sidewall design will help your build stand out from the rest. Plus, it has a massive tread grip to guarantee maximum traction when driving down the pavement. For when it’s raining, the tread sipes help deliver traction as well by squeezing out excess water.

Is Rough Country Suspension Good?

When it comes to suspension, this build is running a 6” lift kit from Rough Country. Earlier in their suspension manufacturing journey, Rough Country had earned a less-than-stellar reputation for producing cheaply-made products that didn’t satisfy their customers. However, over the years, our team at ARKON OFF-ROAD has had the pleasure of installing and using Rough Country suspension products.

Rough Country has shown incredible growth over the years, focusing on their improved research and development in order to improve their shocks and suspension geometry in their lift kits. They have also revisited past kits that weren’t as good as they could have been and reworked them. Also, there is a noticeable improvement in ride quality with their newly revamp products as well.
