    I like the looks of those rims, but I'm getting the steel wagon wheels painted white.

    I'm probley going to order them through "Wheels of Steel". I want custom back spacing on the rears to line the tires up with the front. I'll order them in basic grey primer and paint them white myself. I was quoted $288.94 delivered to my front door for (3) 15x10 with 4" back spacing and (2) 15x10 with 2.5" back spacing. Not too bad a price with the shipping.

    <font color="green"> That's pretty cheap. I'm not really convinced about the different backspacing though, it's going to really cut down on the rotating that you can do. Aggressive tires need to be rotated fairly often to get the bast life out of them, and you're going to need to swap the rims in order to bring the rears up front and vice-versa. I just don't think the 3" difference is a big enough deal to offset the problems. Just my opinion though. </font color>

    Ya know, I never thought about the rotation the tires issue. Maybe I'd be better off just ignoring the fact that the rears sit inwards alittle. Thanks, you probly saved me a headake latter on.
