Default 17x8 steel clip style 8 lug wheels

I used centers from 17.5 wheels and had them installed into 17x8 DOT approved steel rings. I chose to have them powder coated in rally wheel silver verses black or white as the argent silver matched my truck better and I wanted to be different. I went with a 255/80r17 toyo tire mainly because a lot of tires are on back order because of the rubber shortage from what I have been told. Yes the picture has a chevy hub cap but you can use any 3/4 style hub cap.

They look quite good, I may have to get some made as well. I ordered some 15X8 stock looking steel rims from wheel master classics in Calgary, so far it's been a waiting game. Isn't it amazing that you can get all kinds of mags and other silly junk, but not decent looking rims anymore.

The tires that I wanted to use are have been on back order since September of 2021, I gave up on waiting. I still had a hard time finding the Toyo tires.
