I'm looking for some black steelies. (or a retailer that can get them) Any Ideas?

I tried to call Trail Ready but they were too busy to answer the phone, plus I think they are too much $$

-17x9
-2.5" Backspace
-6 on 5.5 Bolt Pattern
-3.5+" CB dia.

Tower of murder, baby.
Used to work with a guy who had a newer chev truck ( '05 ish? )

it had decent looking 17" 6 hole factory steelies on it, always meant to borrow one to see if they'd fit , but never got around to it.

hey cam what size of tire are you planning on running on those 17s ?

37x 12.5's.... I wanted the same tires as Ken but Ive already copied too many things from his truck. Thought I'd try the Kevlar Goodyears instead.

find yo sef' some XML's 325/85/16 is an awesome size. about 38 1/2 inch. i wouldn't worry too much about copying kens truck, he's done well (got it right with his first cruiser:hmm:) on that brown beast.

16 inch will give you way more tire/rim choices for the future.

the problem is finding a set of XML's :frown:

are you going with the new MTR? in kevlar?

cheers

Oh yes I love the XML's... hard to find. Ill keep my eye out because things one is looking for in a rush are never there but crop up once one doesn't need them anymore.
I went 17 because its the way of the future... my crystal ball told me so. Also for the higher load rating and shorter sidewall. I tried to find 24's but they didnt make em in chrome for the 60 (bling bling gangsta) So black 17" steelies will have to do.

Oh and yes MTR Kevlars. Hope these things are tough. I also hope the cases hold up well as I plan to re-tread them once they wear out.

I also hope they dont stick out like a roller skate.
