    Looking for the cheapest 17x8 8on6.5 rims. want 4.5" of backspacing but 4.25,4, or 3.75 would be acceptable I guess. Need to call around a little, anyone happen to know where to get the cheapest ones? IN case you are wondering I want to sell my 15" rim IROKs cause of dual piston brake clearance problems, 17" will certainly clear. Either way I need new rims, I could keep the 15" setup and run 2.5" backspacing, but I simply do not want that little backspacing. I could run smaller brakes but I'm not big on the reducing what I spent money to get. And either way I need new 15" rims since mine are 15x10 with 4.5 backspacing, can't run them on the High Pinion axle and can't put beadlocks on them cause they will be too wide.

    Do 17" wheels have a safety bead like 15" wheels? Tim's wheels are cheap enough, and 36" iroks for a 17" wheel are cheap also... then I can get rid of my 16.5's and have a safety bead without grinding my calipers... :thinking:You guys sure do make me spend a bunch of money!

    I'm pretty sure the 17's have safety beads. I think the 1/2 sizes don't.
