FTERMARKET RIMS FOR 2001 Z-71

sorry about eh CAPS i nthe topic thingy. i just now noticed it. anyways, a good buddy of mine is getting a 2001 silverado LS in a few weeks. he wants to add a 3" body lift right away and run aftermarkt rims and tires. i told him that i belive the biggest he'll be able to go is 305/75/16. he's pretty dead set on wanting some sort of Procomp tire. i dont know why exactly but oh well. anywho....i figure PA bodylift and he and i will install it. it'll be nice since none of the bolts will be rusted or anything.
what do you recommend for rims. i dont know much about them as i was never interested in buying them. any advice? oh, can you include approximate costs of the rims too please. thankyou.

Is he looking for flashy, blind your eyes in sunlight wheels or wheels that can get beat up and dirty?

Check online stores for prices.

get beat up and dirty, rock crawlers, like 40 bucks a wheel
or if he wants shine, minkey classic 2 wheels like 119 a piece and they stand out from all the 589s like mine cause they have the bigger holes, they look sweet

yeah the new classic II's are alot cheaper than the originals, kinda weird but htey look sweet. I like American Racing rims for the value and looks, black rims are sweet too. Just go to a local tire store and they will have a catalog with 223149230752194 sets of rims, more than likely.

Re: FTERMARKET RIMS FOR 2001 Z-71

he doesnt wheel al lthat much and he's looking for "shiny" in his words. I"m sure they'll ge a few dings and waht not in them, but nothing too major. i never thought about the rim catalogs at tire shops. thanks

The classic II's are cheaper than the classics cause there a totaly different rim. The classics are Alcoa Forgred alluminum rims while the classic II's are cast. I was planning on the classic II's for the white truck but after hearing there cast I have reconsidered.
