    guys i doubt this is the best stuff, i work at the company that chrome plates all of the major manufatures wheels ect. these rims are worth A LOT there is no way these are real or not stolen. this stile will be on the trucks untill 2006 they will go to a different style then (at least for chrome)

    They are real. Those are not the chrome wheels for $150 set, they are the normal alloy wheels. The chrome H2 wheels are still selling for $700 - $800 a set.

    Not a bad deal, but you cant run a 5.5" backspaced wheel on the front....at least I cant.

    The only issue with them is the 17-inch size. There isn't much of a selection of tires available for 17's yet. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif Someone on here has a set of H2 wheels and tires on their K5, but I can't remember who it was now. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I dont see how with 5.5" backspacing. I tried wheels with 4.5" backspacing and they were hitting the tie-rod ends in front /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    What diameter wheel were you trying to fit? 17's leave much more room inside than 15's do. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif I didn't think the H2 wheels would fit either, but someone on here bought a set of takeoff wheels and tires and bolted them onto his K5 (with 8-lug axles of course). I don't recall a dually axle as being part of the equation. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Now that you say that i do recall putting 16s on one of my friends K5s ad having it just rub the tie rod end, i bet the 17s would clear. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
