I know that the price difference isn't far apart. I know that you’re right about the rust setting up. Actually if you ever look at an older car bumper it will start pitting and this just seems to be the way it is.

I know that all the mag wheels I now place on any of my vehicles are aluminum instead of the chromed wheels.

Guess I will spend the extra bucks and opt for the aluminum tanks too. Thanks for your input Craig.

Once I get them I will decide if I want to have some type of device added to the bottom to keep them secure.

Just adding my 2¢ worth

I am fortunate in that my tongue has room to acommodate the spare and a vinyl coated cable does a nice job of securing tanks and spare. Simple but effective so far.
