    Hey guys,

    I posted a while back, going back and forth from 18's to 20's..... just like the look of a lot of tire, 18's would have worked, but 20s are just too big, i've heard others say "rubber band streched around a wheel" and they're RIGHT.

    anyway, wanted these in 17's but found a good deal locally on a set of 16X8s so i got 'em.

    stock tires were 245/75, put these 265/70s on and they look pretty good.....

    whatda guys think??

    Got 'em for $200 (just wheels, no tires)
    Not a steal.... but an OK deal I think.... they are american racing, outlaw II rims.... i think the 16X8s go for around $100-$125 each....

    these are used and a little worn.. but def. better than the steelies

    looks great. im really kicking myself now that i didnt get the prerunner. the base model just looks wimpy. the wheels are too small and it sits too low. i started another thread to ask people if they have any recommendations for making the non-prerunner look better, but no luck so far. i'm an idiot.:(

    Been there, what's the old saying, hind sight is 20/20....

    I wish I had gotten the sr5 package, wish i had bought an 1100 v-star bike instead of a 650.....

    too late now, just got make the best with what we have!

    you can have the coolest, best looking 4 cyl taco out there!!

    No pains on here, just people helping people out.....

    I'm out of town for a couple weeks, won't be back until thurs. or friday next week, but will get you some close up shots then.....

    I can tell you there is not much room for the caliper.... but there is not much on stock steelies either!!! you can only fit the tip of your finger between the rim and caliper.... and if i'm not mistaken... there is about the same amount of room here....

    hope this helps, and the pics will be up next weekend
