Hey everyone I am new here but I need an answer on something. I have a 05 Z71 four door that has 17 inch rims. I want to buy different rims however, I can't find my rim width anywhere.

Any help with this is much appreciated.

Thanks so much Adam. So my truck is ok tp put 8 inch rims on?

It should be fine with the 8" rims! i had 20"x9" on my last truck which was an 2003. the only thing to be careful with is the backspacing and offset. i dont know enough to tell you much about either of those but i do know that the backspacing and offset will affect how wide or how tucked the rims fit your truck. i am sure there are plenty of people on here that can help you out with those two things!

Thanks jdennis I appreciate it. Now I just have to find the rims I want. I want majority black with a little Crome. I have a tan truck but hate Crome. My flow master tips are black chrome and everything I've done thus far is black

Sounds like you have good taste! the new KMC XD Series Misfits are probably my favorite that are out right now. KMC XD Series imo makes some of the best looking rims out there but there are a ton of great looking ones! let us know what you choose!

What type of tips do you have to get the black chrome?

Not sure where that is. I've lived here six years but don't go north past tifton much. I got the tips from American muffler in valdost on gornto rd. If you call them he I'm sure will get them for you.
