I am trying to pick out the rims for my Suburban. I think I have narrowed it down to these three. The Weld RoadHawks, The Centerline Hellcats, and the American Racing Atlas. The tires will be 37" SSR's. I don't know how to post pics of these rims, but I bet most of you know what rims I am talking about. I am looking for comments, feedback, opinions whatever. Oh and by the way Discount Tire Co. has quoted me $156 per tire on the 37" SSR's. That is about $50 cheaper than most. Hey if anybody knows how to post pics of the 3 rims I am talking about would you please do it for me.

Thanks, Ryan

What kind of lift combination do you have that will fit those meats???

I am running Centerline "Cobras" one nice thing about them is I got the billet caps that cover the lugs and all, makes clean up a breeze
Here is a pic of mine with the billet cap

here is the same wheel with a normal cap


Here is a hellcat with a regular cap


Here is a hellcat with the Billet cap


one thing about the hellcats is they can be a pita to keep clean (to many ridges)

I have a Cepek 6.5" Stage II kit with a 4" shackle flip for the rear plus 3" blocks for now. I will swap the blocks for 2" springs and a 1" zero rate add-a-leaf in the future. I also have a 3" body lift. I have all of the lift components but have yet to turn any wrenches. This combo should give me about 9-10" of lift up front and 10" in the rear. that should be plenty to fit the 37's. This will be my daily driver so it won't see any serious off-roading. I still have the solid axle 1980 GMC to play with. Thanks for posting the pics. I like the Centerlines you said you have. What truck do you have them on? I think those are two different rims in the Hellcats you posted the first is the Hellcat 2 or something like that but if you look they are a lot different.

I had the Hellcats with the billet centers on my 88 Toy that I used to have. They were a great looking rim and were fairly easy to keep clean, but they were only 8.5" wide so it might be harder to clean a deeper rim. The only thing I didn't like about them was that it was pretty easy to damage the outer part of the rim but if you've got a wide tire it should offer more protection...

I have the Cobras on my 1990 1 ton ext cab truck.
I noticed the 2 hellcats were different/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif but at least it showed the different caps.
Here is the Centerline website http://www.centerlinewheels.com/
You are doing good to get your tires from "Discount" /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif that is the ONLY place I get tires, you should get your wheels there also, you can really bargain the price down if you are buying a whole package from them. (make sure you get the road hazard warranty also! best money you will ever spend)

i've found the rims i've been looking for for so long. they're made by enkie and the style is CTM-5. these rims are soooo sweet and truly unattainable. each 15x10 wheel is an outrageous $379.00! no way can i afford that. i guess i'll stick to the 589s.

i don't know what you mean by "rice" but it mustn't be good. yeah, i showed a freind here at work those rims and she didn't like em. she really likes the MRT beadlock wheels tho. they're not legal.
i ask her cuz she's a chic and i want to know what a chic would dig. you dig?

By "RICE" I mean they look like they belong on a little toyota, or nisson /wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif lowered to the ground no practical purpose at all.

Thanks for all of the replies. I like the look of the Centerlines with the Billet insert. I think it gives it a cleaner, and deeper look. I am stillup in the air on the three choices I mentioned. Is there a site that has a really large reader's ride section where I could see a lot of trucks with all kinds of rims on them? That would help. I guess I will start with Off-Road.com's first.

Thanks, Ryan
