    I have desided on 33" x 15" BF Mud Terrain Tires, and am looking for wheels, and I want to go as cheap as possible, and strong. I dont want chrome, steel is fine, painted black looks good too. I mye even lynex the wheels too. US Wheels are cheap on summit, but are they any good? There 50 bucks a wheel. Anyone have any better soluitions? Cause I need 5 of both, and dont want to spend a grand alone on the tires, when I'll be spending less than that on the car.

    When I was looking for tires and wheels. I happened to find just what I wanted off of here. That was a few years ago though. I like th elook of the black wheels on my truck. My current set is of an unknown manufactuere but my previous set was the rock bruiser, I think. Try 4 wheel parts and such. As far as tires, I found that Tyres Internation was cheaper than anyone else I could find at the time. I paid 980 for a set of 17x40x15 Hawgs delivered to the door. A buddy just ordered a set of 39.5 TSL's for the same price from the same place.

    The wheels you are speaking of, are just fine. I've had a set of white ones for about 3yrs now. I've got a set of black ones that I'm about to put on my k5 in a few weeks. I paid $43 a piece for mine from a local tire/wheel shop. Look around town, you might save a few bucks on shipping.

    Thanks for the help, the black ones online are 50 something for the size i need, and I'll use froogle to find more cheaper. What width is good for my tire? Ill check Tires International, but the tires i was looking at are at costco (local, should be wholesale, no shipping) are installed on wheels, balanced, and then put on the car for 166 a tire.

    15X8, with 2.5inch backspacing has been great for me.

    What size tire? On a 12.5 I normally run a 10 wide. I've got a 15 wide tire now and I still run a 10 wide wheel.
