    I'm going with [​IMG] Because my K5 is blue and white, and I think they'll look better then the black ones on my K5.

    That is similar to what i am looking at but in black, white would look really bad on my silver truck. Anyone have black rims on a silver rig???

    Z3PR, you love pimping that pic, don't you. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    chev4life, click on the link in my signature and look at pics in the "3/4 ton axle swap" album. I'm running 15x8" steel rims with 2.75" backspacing. I got them from 4wpw ( /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif) and they were originally white...gave them a shot of black spray paint, and they still look decent...probably won't after another couple of winters, but then I'll just hit them with another shot of paint. Hey, they faired better through this winter so far than my aluminum A.R. Outlaw II's did...road salt is hell on aluminum wheels. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    If you want a REALLY slick look, check out American Racing's new Teflon-coated wheel. I love the color of them, and I'm sure they're really durable (not to mention $$$, although I haven't checked prices yet). And, if you're ever camping, you could use one to fry some eggs and bacon. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    4wp give you the wrong offset???
    They dont look too bad at all, those tires need to grow alittle though /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
    Yeah, I have MT II's on my truck now and they are stained and dull as hell not even going to try and shine them up though its possible. That is one of the reasons why I was looking at the black PC steel wheels and I did look at the teflon wheels, but I dont think they are going to offer them in 8lug pattern I still need to call about those though. That would rock to be able to throw them on the fire and cook away /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Yup. I asked for 4.25", and 2.75" showed up at my door. I didn't have time to mess around with sending them back, so I mounted them up and am really happy with the way they look - and I didn't have to grind my calipers. If I had to do it again knowing what I know now, I would have just ordered the 2.75" ones.

    Don't get me started...believe me, I know. I don't know if I want to go any bigger just because my truck is such a dog on the freeway as it is with 33's. And, in that one pic of the rear, I don't know why the tires look so miniscule...they really aren't as bad as that picture makes them look. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Truck still looks sweet though, I agree those tires looked mini in the rear a little better with the full veiw. I feel ya on being a dog on the freeway, 3.42 w/33's on my k5 (only for another few weeks /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif though).
    Sucks about 4wp, at least it worked out in the end, the spacing in the front is perfect, maybe a 1 inch spacer in the rear to even them out....made a big diff on my rig.

    White and black rig looks sweet, post that pic of the silver one if you can find it.

    This is a pic of Stazworks Double Beadlock Rims, I just got mine last week. Mine are 8 lug. [​IMG]

    They are 15x10 with 4" bs. I ordered them with no valve stem hole, so yesterday I got the valve stem holes drilled and tapped. (We make valve stems for Nascar at work so I figured if they work for them picky bastards they should work for me) /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif cybrfire is burning rock rings for them now. When I get those welded on then they will go to the powder coat shop.
    The outer rim will be silver metalic and the inner rim will be bright red. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif
