    17\" Wheels and MTR ???

    Does anybody know where I can find STEEL 17" rims. I have been serching the web and so far nothing. I'm tring to figure out how much it's going to cost me to step up to 37" MTR's on Donna's K5. The tires are about $30 more each for the 17" wheel compared to a 15" but the 17" will allow more backspacing without grinding the calipers. Also looking for the best price on MTR's. Tirerack has good prices and I checked locally and it will run $190 each mounted and balanced for the 37x12.5x15's but I think that price is a little high.

    Wayne,

    I was wondering the same thing! I don't want to spend big money for aluminum wheels that are going to get rockrash!

    Stop being lazy and call Rockstomper about the wheels. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gifAlso, check out Walmart for the tires, they might have them, if not, than tirerack or discounttire are yor best bet. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    BTW - 4wheelparts will beat any price you find, plus free freight. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    i got 17" 8 lug 8 on 6 1/2 black powdercoated steel rims from high impact www.high-impact.net They are the allied racing rims with little round holes all the way around. Like the eagle 589's. I am also running the 37" x 17" goodyear mtr hummer tires (load range E). /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Wish i had a pic to show you. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif I dont believe they list them on their website. But you can look at a pic to get an idea.

    With 17" rims you shouldn't have any grinding issues with the calipers. Also $190 is a pretty good price on 37's from what I have seen. Most places have quoted me between $200-220 for them. As for 17" rims, I don't know. Someone did mention that whoever makes the rockcrawler rims will make them in any size though so you might look there.

    High Impact will make them any way you want. Pirate 4x4.com did an article on the same rims i'm talking about. Check it out
