I'm rubbing as it is with 4.5 inch backspacing...and their 16x8 5 on 4.5 is 5" backspacing. But thanks.

I'm going to see what the place about an hour away has in stock and just go pick them up tomorrow. If they have the 97's, I'll get them, otherwise, it's gonna be the 51's.

I have had two sets of "A".

as for being heavy, blancing badly, and what brand, yes theyre heavy but I would take steel over aluminum when wheelin. had some run ins on my last set that woulda cracked aluminum. they balance alright, but depends on the tires. Ive never had an extremely horrible time on a straight steel wheel. and one company makes them all, so brand is sort of irrelevent...
