Thread: Aftermarket Rims?
04-28-2010, 03:15 AM #1
It's looking like instead of fixing up my 05 GSX-R 600 (went down a few weeks ago) I might just sell it to a friend so he can deal with rebuilding it...with that said, I might just be in the market for some new rims and tires My question to all of you is...where do you buy them, and what kind of suggestions do you have for me? I don't want 33s, but would like a little larger than stock tires to make the truck a little taller. I know about tirerack.com, but they seem to be more skewed towards cars. Also any advice about backspacing and offset would be nice, since I know next to nothing about either...thanks for your help in advance!
Oh and its a 2003 Silverado 1500 Extended cab Z-71...check out my albums for pics of it (and the now deceased Gixxer :( )

It really depends on the look you are going for, are you keeping 16" rims or do you want larger? whatever size you are going with I'd keep the offset around 20mm if you are keeping the ride height stock.Adam

i like http://www.tirepackage.com/ they have decent prices and are more for offroad vehicles and you can build a package if you wants if you find rims you like there too

discounttire.com has some cool rims and the prices are pretty reasonable

Yeah...I know it would be kinda tight...I am probably gonna be looking more towards the 1,200 range now. I can get a set of 18" XD Rockstars in black with 275/55/18 tires mounted and balanced for about 1,300...now if only I had the cash right this second. I'm also considering the fact that I am probably going to be cross countrying this truck from NY to California, so I might just stick with stock rolling stock till then and put some of the money from the bike into a programmer/tune and some more exhaust work. We will see...
