Where to buy... Steel wheels

I am looking for some 17x9 or 17x10 Steel wheels. I look on Summit, basically Cragars, not that those wouldnt work but I wanted to see all my options. Any sites in mind? Besides Summit.

inexpressive too, could be used.

Thanks!

probably Kore, I like their design and price. 400 and some for beadlock rings, then i just need wheels. Should go nicely with a set of 42x15x17 rockers.

i can get some shipped for 300, but i was hoping for less.

i might just run my aluminum wheels for a bit longer but id rather just switch over. problem is they are 17x8.5 i really doubt a 15" wide tire is going to mount on a 8.5" wide wheel. its going to be hard enough on a 17x9, but i cant find any 17x10 steel wheels!

true, if i still worked there i would have made you one of my badass long distance deals. sorry. lol


dont forget that when you convert the rim to a beadlock, you gain an inch or so. so a 17x9 realy becomes a 17x10.5 or something like that. depends on the beadlocks you get

Zach, PM me a price on your 17's. They're not exactly what I want for my truck, but for the right price they'd make a great temp wheel. A guy I know is selling some 35 x 12.5 17 KM2's for the right price, and I'd like to pick them up.

I could be wrong, but stock 17" 8x6.5 wheels aren't going to be wide enough. Likely they are only 17x7, and you want at least a 17x9.
