    Ok, so its about time for tires, but i would really like to find a deal on some take-off wheels and tires. I would either like to find a set of the 2000 and newer Silverado Z71 rims or the 2000 and newer Z71 tahoe/suburban rims. Anyone planning on replacing their stock rims that would be interested in selling them? Also, what do dealers and custom shops do when people replace their rims and don't want to keep the stock ones? I've looked on Ebay, but I'm not exactly a fan of the whole online auction thing.

    Thanks!

    From your profile, you have a 94.... I'd double check that they are going to fit first off.... the rims I bought for my 94, (biggies) the back spacing is wrong for our 99 and 2001.... I'm thinking that a 2000 isnt going to work on your rig....BUT if you are looking for rims, and not the new stock ones, but some that are a little bigger- 16X9's... I do have some PCW's...about 8k miles... but anyhow, double check!

    What type of rims are they? Brand/model. Also, what is teh back spacing on the rims? Are they just rims or rims/tires? If tires, what size? Thanks!

    Tires are gone- they went last week- I had 305/70/16's on them -equal to a 33..
    they are PCW,, EMR 120's...Its ALL backspacing- the center part of the rims is basically equal with the outter lip- I don't know what you call it....I'll try to either find the pictures of the Burb with them on it, scan it and send it or get some pics on to you, of just the rims....Let me go to PCW's website, and see if I can find them, to give you a link

    You can measure the backspacing if the rims are already off the truck. Just take a straight edge, Stand it on edge across the back of the rim, then take a tape measure and measure how far it is from the straight edge to the inside of the wheel. Or at least i think thats how its done...... Someone correct me if im wrong?
