    Does anyone know if they make a 17X10 steel wheel? If so who and where. I'm interested in getting some of the new 37x12.5x17 BFG mud terrains but I don't care for alloy wheels for off-roading.

    Thanks,
    Mike.

    Never seen a 17" steel in my life. You might want to check with Stockton Wheel or another custom builder.

    I'd hate to custom order some, I'm sure that they would want a pretty penny for them. You would think that someone would make them since BFG is making the tires for them. I'll e-mail Stockton Wheel just to see what they say. Thanks for the idea.

    Mike.

    <font color=blue>Why not 37x12.5x15 MT/R's? They're about $180 each now

    I would have to grind my calipers for 15's. Plus I like the BFG's better.

    Sams 4x4 makes a set of caliper brackets for running 3/4 ton Chevy calipers on both Ford and Chevy 60s. And there is another company that makes a spiffy set of dual piston aluminum 3/4 ton calipers I want to say you can't get them from either Jegs or Summit. Just an FYI.

    That would allow you to run 15s and save a bunch of weight.

    You replied to a thread that is 9 years old...holy dredge Batman! You do realize that in all probability he made his decision so long ago he has replaced those tires twice over...

    Hahaha, I always forget to look at the dates on these damn things but it comes up when you google search "17x10 wheels" (that's how I found it) So maybe it'll help someone else looking.
