    I plan to run 17" wheels on my new K5, just wondering if I should run a set of H2 wheels or these Cragar Wheels from Summit. Anyone have links to other inexpensive 17" wheels?

    One of my close friends just bought a set of H2 takeoffs and put the tires on his dodge. If you are interested, I can get you the wheels for a great price.

    Pete, how wide a rim do you want to run? I've been watching H2 rims on eBay and seen them go for $200-ish for 4 rims. Shipping wasn't too bad as some were averaging $60, at least to my zip code.

    I would get the H2's but if I was after bling-bling, I would get anything from the Weld Racing line of wheels. :waytogo:

    i think with H2's, like on a Dodge, you would have to machine out the centers to fit them on one ton axles... might be able to squeeze by with a D44, but i dont know. i know the 3rd gen dodge rims i have ate 8 on 6.5 17x9. i plan on going to 20's or 19.5's in the near future, but till i get some dough i have to keep my 17's. im going to go looking again here in town and see if i can get anything i like and finance it, as i need tires BAD...

    H2's should fit just fine a D60, on my dad's blazer I had to put some stock HD wheels and tires on it to get it in my grandma's barn and they are the same center hole size as the H2 wheels.

    I run 17 x 10 eagles. They cost me about $160.00 each.

    H2's will fit on chevy 1 tons. They have to be machined for ford 1 tons, apparently. Look here for a more complete discussion.

    I like the H2's - I got 2 sets off of eBay, one with tires for $450 shipped and the second without for $150 shipped. Be patient and watch for them. You might also watch Pitare as they seem to come up for sale there once in a while.

    I am running a set from MRW. They are 17x10. Mine are beadlocks, but they sell non-beadlock wheels too.

    I tried to find another picture of the wheel, but this is the closest I could find... This is a buddy of mine driving in Hot Springs. I think there a couple pics of the wheels in my photo gallery.
