Ok, why does everything have to be so *** damn difficult??? He needs new rims for those sh*tty *ss tires and then Adrenaline Offroad said it'll be $600 for what we need for a lift!! I wasn't going to buy anything from Adrenaline... the bf decided to just get a quote for a lift. Is there anyone who knows where i can get rims cheap for 31x10.50/15's??? If not, i'll just return them and say f*ck it all!

Sorry... i'm just so frustrated...

ok why do u need new rims?

dont you have 15" wheels?

they are prolly 15x7 and those will mount just fine on there. if they wont do it go to someone else that will becasue that is BS

are you changing your lift plans other than what we said? if so then maybe that lift requires different wheels

He went to Adrenaline Offroad and they said the suspension lift they're trying to sell him would be $600 incl the install. The lift incl the coils springs and such just like y'all were saying. The guy there said also that he would need different rims b/c the rims would make the tires too close to the suspension and blah blah blah!!!! I HATE salesmen!! haha too D*mn stressful! I called him back after i blew off some steam and told hom that he doesn't need them to install it nor does he need a suspension lift, just try a body lift. So, not installed, it's going to be $290 for the body lift. How are body lifts? Please take into consideration that he's not offroading b/c it's only a 2wd and it's just going to be for looks. Does that make a difference at all?

That is called Back spacing which is the how deep the acutal mount of the hub is from the outside of the rim. there should be no reason to need differently backspaced rims if you aren't going with new spindles.

If you do need new rims, Again. go to SUMMIT.COM.


you keep listing all these places you are running around to and getting ... the run around. Go to the website we tell you about! we're not trying to profit like the jeep jockeys working at at local O/R store are.

I only went to Advanced and that was to mainly ask if they had coils or AAL's. I was going to see if i could get them somewhere cheaper b/c i only have a set amount of money to get all this sh*t. I like to look around before i set my mind on a certain place. AND i told him to just wait til i get done looking around and THEN we can get his lift done. He was so excited to get his tires, he went to a couple places to get quotes about a lift without telling me (PLUS, i was a little stressed out b/c i gave him the money to get the tires. he had extra money, so i thought he would get SO excited that he'd just go and spend the money on stupid sh*t!). That's when he called me and told me that the guy said "this and that and the other" (what i told you about the "new rims") PLUS i'm at work trying to .......... .................. .............. Sorry

definitly go to summit..you can get rims for $38ea. and they will work no problem..these guys that are giving advice online..well they been there and researched the info and thier advice is real good..I have been researching for toys for my truck and from what I can see from the local guys..they will charge whatever your willing to pay..they have to make money to survive but if you get your stuff online..you can save money in the long run..I would get all the stuff you need and then save some money for the installation and all what is needed to get the truck done..even if its a month or 2 later..better to plan and play it smart rather than to impulse buy and then say ..damn thats not what I want..just my .02
