I live in a totally retarded section of the globe! :(

I went to the only Boyd dealer in the area today and priced a set of timeless 5 rims. First he told me they were $1195 a set plus mounting. So I showed him a Minitruckin' magazine and he aggree to match the price.

Then we were talking about backspacing and a 1st gen s-10 and he told me they wouldn't fit in 17"

Can someone tell me what backspacing a 17" timeless needs to be to fit on my truck?

I am planning on running around a 215/40-17 tire.

Thanks for the help

Eric

Going today

I live in a rural part of the state there are only 2-3 shops that handle wheels around here. That was the only one that handles the boyd wheels.

Probably have to order them online and have them mounted here.

Anybody know of a good knowledgeable web-dealer?

If you're ordering rims & tires, they will come mounted already.
All you gotta do is put them on the truck.

No.

Fortunitly I live in S.Cali. There's rim/tire shops on every other corner out here. I would say, 1 out of every 5 has a experienced staff that know their stuff.
