For those looking for 17" steelies, I found them!

So I have looking for my dad, to try and find 17x8 Steel wheels with a correct back spacing, and not custom. I personally have 17x8's on my truck, but in a 4.5 BS, becasue thats all there was 2 years ago.

Allied wheel makes a 17x8 steel beadlock in a 3.5 BS. For 5x5.5 or 5x4.5

Here are some part numbers

Part # Size Pattern BS Center Bore
RT8178080 17x8 8x6.5 3.5 5.150
RT8178060 17x8 6x5.5 3.5 4.250
RT8178055 17x8 5x5.5 3.5 4.250
RT8178012 17x8 5x4.5 3.5 3.300

I have seen them priced at $217 a piece, which isn't bad for beadlocks

These are DOT legal.

Are you sure they are DOT approved? Last I knew there were only 3 or 4 DOT approved beadlocks. :dunno:
 






Argh. Not enough backspacing for my needs.
 






I have Rockathons in 17x9.5 (i think) but 8-lug and yeah, I dont think they are DOT approved.
