Black rock wheels Yuma series 908b
They weigh 29 lbs they are aluminum but look like steel their load cap. Is 2200lbs.
For a truck that rarely goes serious off road just dirt roads and some uneven terrain.
They are 17x8 with 4.5" offset (backspacing) so they will stick out about a half inch more I assume. I believe these are the same weight as stock and therefore won't suffer any noticeable changes is mpg or low end torque. If not these i was gonna get some black steel like procomp 52. For the price of these you can't beat them in aluminum obviously steel is cheaper.

I posted a link at the bottom. Opinions appreciated.

They go for $131- tirepackage .com

I think someone on here was selling a set not too long ago.


Edit: found it. Sold already but he had them. He might be able to answer some questions for you

If I'm thinking right I believe they were the same wheels just silver. But he can tell you if they were or not. Good luck

They were aluminum. Great wheels for the price. Only reason I changed was to get the scratch guards to protect the lip from the rocks. I think the Yuma is a very under appreciated wheel. I almost plasti dipped them black

So if they are with a wider tire i.e. 285 on a 17x8 would the lip stick out to the point that they would get scratched easily on a curb or lite rocks/of road.

Also if I buy them matte black and coat them with a high gloss spray before mounting tires will it go from flat to gloss like I want? Granted I use the correct product.

Nah, you won't scratch em on curbs. I wheel in the rocks, so they took abuse from that. The 8" width is perfect with a 285.

You can paint any color you want. I would use wheel paint though if possible.

I looked at the Yumas. Ended up going with Rebel Racing Saharas just because they had 'em in stock.

The Yumas look good. There is a thread on here about Yumas on a red truck and they seemed to fit OK. I considered them for my SR5 steelies but ended up buying some CL OEM alloys for $200.

Thanks for all the input. What would be better if I want them gloss black spray them with gloss black or coat them in high gloss both would be wheel paint by duplicolor prob but I am not going to rough the surface.

I'm confused. You say spray, or coat with Duplicolor? Coating wouldn't use paint at all, and is the much better way to go - but would add about $100 per wheel.

The onmly problem i see is that the 4.25 inch center bore is slightly bigger than 106mm
4.17 vs. 4.25. Idk if this would be a problem or not i think the lug nuts would help center the wheel.

I am talking about spraying with high gloss over the satin black finish not powder coating. Hopefully that is clear sorry for the confusion

Not a problem. Most aftermarket wheels are lug centric. As long as you criss cross and evenly torque the lugs, they run perfect.

I have the Black Rock 937s on my 2007 TRD Sport and really like them. Good quality - I had a good look over before they were installed. They fit just like stock but the centre caps to stick out a bit past the face of the wheel, not really beyond the tire though.

I know this is a different wheel than you're looking at but just thought I'd put my two cents in re: Black Rock.
