I like my stock "dubs", everyone seems to think they look better than most aftermarket options...

I just wish we had a 20x9 OEM wheel!

What do you all think?

I just wanted to be the first EVER thread in this section!

I like the stock rims compared to much of what is out there available for our trucks. There just is not that big of a selection due to the retarded lug size that Chevy doomed us with. Why they did not us the 6x5.5" like on other Chevy trucks, I will never know?

I do however like these...

It is possible to widen the stock wheels... I think it's $125 per wheel... and width is added to the inside of the rim.

How much wider can a wheel go on the front, or rear, and clear the suspension??

I'm sure someone here knows... probably Norcal for sure.

Evil SS, I totally agree. I like my factory wheels as well. I wanted added tread on the ground plus the better performance. My car is not slammed but lowered 1 1/4 inch. I had 2 inches added to the rear wheels and am using Goodyear RS-A 295x40x20's in the rear. RS-A 245x45x20 in front to give matching tread and sidewall bulge and aspect ratio look. It takes a few small tweeks to gain added clearance on the inside where the wheel could rub but overall worth is.

Hey Pedro, where have you been? Miss your posts. How about an update on your ride. The wheel/tire thing has worked out very well. Andy has the same setup on his TBSS as well. The 295's do a better job on launches. Lets hear from you.

Wheels w/ a lip?!?!

Does anyone make a wheel that looks worth a shit? I don't want to go custom :( . I might be able to get a few strings pulled w/ a certain someone who had a handful of my coworkers on his TV show... But.. Ehh.. Damn our shitty bolt pattern :(

Agreed. I haven't really seen a single aftermarket wheel that looked decent to me yet.

The only aftermarket wheels that I want cost too much. HRE will make you anything in any bolt pattern, but they are about $2000 per wheel for the ones I want.

I think I might do the black chrome coating on my stockers
