ordered my new rims !!!!!!!!:-)

i ordered my new rims for my zuk today !!!!! they are 16.5/8.25 with 5 on 5.5 lug pat.with 2 inch back spacing. datona style.painted black .
i am sure you are all wondering why 16.5 rims ? well when one gets 4 next to brand new Grabber AT M/S s for 75 bucks one uses them.
i am slowly getting my parts together to build a better monster:-)
just wanted to share my joy with you all .

I'm not sure how true it is since I've only run 15 inch wheels, but I had heard that 16.5's seem to like blowing beads when aired down.

i heard the same,hence the smaller width wheel.we will see though.i won't air them down too far, i don't plan on rock crawling this rig.i like driving it to much to break it all the time.

yeah 16.5's don't like to be aired down. they don't have a safety bead.

Don't understand how one made it and the other didn't... Oh well, that's US SNAIL MAIL. I guess the postman delivering the 2nd package was one who went the extra mile.... glad you got it, other should be should be right behind ....
