    thanks, the factory paint and clear is baking off the hood and roof..
    so thought the faded cladding was appropriate
    Its funny how many comments and stares this thing still gets when Im
    I drive it. Its drives my wife nuts, everytime we are out someone ask us
    what it is and she knows Im going to end up talking about it for a few
    minutes.. ( I cant be rude

    Cool.. glad you like em..
    Im not big on 20" rims, but they would look pretty cool for sure..
    if you can, check the weight difference between the 17s and 20s first before you buy.

    Yeah, that's the funny thing. You list the 17's as 31 lbs, their website lists them at 25. I do see they list the 20's as 40lbs...which is significant. The 18's though are listed at 29, which might be more the ticket.

    Edit:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._cd_al_qh_dp_i

    This lists SHIPPING weight at 36Lbs, which means that they're probably closer to 34-35 lbs...if it's accurate.

    http://www.amazon.com/Worx-Triad-Off...triad+black+17

    This lists shipping weight at 33 lbs. And I have a hard time believing that a 3" bigger wheel only has 3 more Lbs of shipping weight.

    Wish I had warehouse access & a scale.

    Bump.

    Did you use any hub centric rings with these? It looks like these are about 106.1mm ID where stockers are 108mm ID. Were there any issues with this?

    No, Ive never used hub rings on any of the wheels on my VX..
    but I use high quality tires (Continentals) and driven the truck
    at 100 mph on the hwy too with no issues.
    Some cars need them more so then trucks, but much varies on if they help or not.
