    I have some Grove wheels and brakes for an EAB project I'm working on. They are a work of art, and the company is very good to work with.

    Grove makes great wheels and brakes out of aluminum (corrosion resistant) or magnesium (light weight). Alaska Bushwheel Inc are an exact copy of Cleveland and the parts are interchangable and they are mad of aluminum which is heavier than magnesium.

    Groves are silver, ABI are black. Which would I buy? Whichever was cheaper including freight.
