Chewy got the best deal. $100.00 (lucky bastard...) :hail:
This deal isn't so good... only comes with 3 wheels...
That is currently how many wheels I have also... (damn FedEx) :hissy:
But the 4th one has been found and is on it's way! :woot:
I paid $150.00 for all four, $270.00 after shipping
Now just gotta get them powder-coated, then can mount the Duratrac's! :cool:

I was just thinking that same thing 06Blazin! I could use a full size spare as well. How much are they charging for shipping? I can't decide if I like the silver/black or all silver center caps... What do you think?

Not sure if its a bad pic. but these look like the polished H3 wheels. If so they may look funny against your painted ones. :m2: But I ordered a 5th to make a full set w/ full sized spare! :D (this post is making me give up all my secrets!) :duh:

I like the silver centercaps on the painted alloy rim personally. But again I believe this is the polished wheel. If so, it looks so so...

I KNEW IT!!!! :rotfl: You are going to powder coat them black aren't you? I considered that, but by the time that thought made it into my brain I had already mounted the tires.

They look painted to me, but it wouldn't be the first time I have been wrong! :duh:

I figured I'd blow my cover sooner or later...
If FedEx would have gotten my last wheel to me LAST week, I'd have already had em done with pics and all! But since my cover is blown, I may as well take some pics and post em up in my current "build" thread. I may also post a pic up of the TB as it sits currently. :rotfl: It looks ridiculous...

Mine looked awful when I picked it up from the shop with the stock wheels and tires on it. The first thing they said to me was it needs new shoes! But little did they know that the new wheels and tires were waiting down the street to be mounted! :laugh:

Green and silver 6 x 5.5 stock wheels off a 1990 chevy 1500... :dielaugh:
i may have to post it up as a gag in the appearance forum and see what all the lowered TV's have to say. I'll act like it was what I was going for the entire time! :crackup:

HAHA That's pretty good!

How do the wheel adapters work? Any centering issues?

I should have inspected my new adapters when I got them! :duh: While I was having my adapters put on, the tech noticed that one of the adapters was missing a stud! It was ok for a day or two running on 4 studs, but I took the whole thing off and had one pressed in! I was so mad!

cant tell yet. the tires I have on the loaner wheels have the worst wear patterns I've ever seen. lots of cupping, and terrible wear from some camber issues it had to have from previous owner. if i dont hold on to the wheel, you can watch it go side to side almost 2 inches. my tire guy said they torqued on just fine though. so once the new wheels and tires are on i'll be able to find out for sure if any vibration or anything occurs. I am hoping they do just fine. most aftermarket wheels you cannot wheel center anyway because the bore is HUGE! They just hub align them with the lugnuts anyway. The TB is staying parked in the garage until all is complete. Riding the bike around now.
