U could always look on the net....

:iagree:

tons of stuff on the net... just would suck on the shipping costs up north if you ordered from the states.. i know a popular rim is the SS rim... not the 17" that your looking for.. but the 20;s do look good on any of our platforms .. :twocents:

Sad to see another member suffering like me! If you're having the same taste i'm having checkout the 17'' MB Gunners and 17'' American Trench. You can't beat it and they both come in our bolt pattern, no adapters needed.

They also come with better Offset so that your rims stick out more to the outside. I was never able to find anyone to ship international for a reasonable price without breaking my piggy bank :crazy:

Here's a pic of the American Trench 17'' but I think they only make chromes now (they're not bad though) --> The pix are from a member named Sponge but dont think he ever crossed over. I always had his pix on my laptop lol! Was trying to convince him to sell them to me :biggrin:

For these options no adapters needed, but options are very limited. I gave up on finding something in our bolt pattern locally. I can't ship from outside cuz of the huge budget it needs.

I'm going with a lift soon so i'm gonna get the adapters 6x5 -> 6x5.5 and buy me some rims here locally. Check out the sticky djthumper pointed out. :thumbsup:

You don't need adapters for everything. I just recently purchased new 16" wheels for a really good deal and no adapters until I decide to go with a wider tire. :smile: http://gmtnation.com/f28/new-16-wheels-787/

its tempting..but i dont want larger rims..but there are some saab wheels for less than 300 on craigslist.. i dont think they are bad looking... repaint them and put chevys in the center.. dont want bigger rims though.

I really like how that setup looks. Not so much the actual wheels but the tires because they look bigger than stock. Are those tires 265/65??

Loool! Dude I knew you would find your way and yes I'm still stalking your Rims haha! I've decided i'm gonna order me some adapters 6x5 -> 6x5.5 next month. There's no point of looking anymore :rotfl: ! We got that bolt pattern here locally, which also btw is the bolt pattern of a Toyota FJ Cruiser! (4x4, and plenty of it here). Lots of options :wootwoot:

I'm looking to purchase 18's and would be willing to sell you my stock 17's. I just don't know how cost effective shipping to Canada would be....

IMO your chrome accessories will still look out of place with those rims. If you want to keep the chrome accessories I think you need chrome rims to tie the look together.

Those look better. Both sets say 0 offset

0 offset with adapters / spacers will make the wheel stick out too far buddy. You might end up needing to do some trimming to the fenders :lipsrsealed: You're better off 12+ to 25+ offset with adapters to stay safe :thumbsup:

i dont think these rim here look so bad...there off a saab... just change out the center and even paint them and they would rock... only $215. 17,s
i was thinking bout grabbing them but i dont want bigger rims..

I was thinking of going with the Saab wheels, they go for $300 - $600 on ebay, or these Wheel Details - Discount Tire

I had given up on 20" until I saw these American Racing Torq Thrust 20 inch rims with tires for Trailblazer

They look pretty sweet, kinda old school, IMO

WOW!! I would snap those up in a heartbeat if I was closer!

I think they would look good painted or powder coated black.

You could always contact the guy.

Anyone know if these wheels are compatible with the tpms? When was tpms introduced, 06? 07?

All years of the 9-7x have had TPMS and these wheels were standard with the 5.3L V8 from 2005 through 2009 without change.
