Here's the deal, I have a red 01 X that i have dropped 2 more inches in the front and 3 inches in the back and have done some body, engine/exhaust and interior mods but I'm still rolling on the factory wheels & tires.It's time for new rollers!These are the 2 best deals i can get in my area so far............17x8 Boyd Timeless
with p255/45/17's for around $1700 or 18x8 Eagle 212's with 235/40/18's for around $1675. I kinda like a 5 spoke design myself but am open to anything.Do either of these sound like good deals?....would they look o.k. Am open to your suggestions, comments,pic's etc. thanks for any help

ugh 1700 for 17" timeless seem alot.....i dunno this company but they quoted me 1940 for 18x8 225/45/18 front and 18x9.5 275/40/18 rear.....thats from exotic wheel and tire 1-866-394-3359...i talked to paul..i didnt ask what kinda tires they were putting on (i should have) so they might be a cheap brand...but those tire sizes arent really made by cheap tire company's cept maybe continental and they're not that bad i guess...i dunno but you might get a lil rubbing with 255/45/17 on the x but i'm not sure....but boyd is supposedly alot better wheel then eagle so you might want to take that into consideration....but to answer your question i like the timeless over the 212's.....

17x8 Boyd Timeless with p255/45/17's for around $1700
Thats too much.
It should cost about $1100-12000.

Give this place a try:
PerfomanceTirePlus
I go to the Carson store, it's near my house. They always got me really low prices and the guys do know their stuff, they're really knowledgable about rims/tires. Call them and talk to the guys to get a good price.

They also run ads in all the magazines, I just saw the new one in Truck'in, they have 20" Centerlines w/tires for $1500 and other deals.

I got the 17" Centerline rims on the Blazer for $170 each and the tire are 17" Toyo Proxes for $110 each. I remember he offered me 17" Generals for under $100 each, but I went with the Toyos because they have a better more aggresive thread.

Thanks For the Imput

Well I talked to Paul at Performance Tire and he seemed pretty cool. Think I'm gonna go with the Boyd Smoothie 2'sb-cause #1 there is no 4-6 week wait(I hate waiting) and I should have my tire &wheels by the weekend #2 I like 5 spoke designs #3 my truck isn't my daily driver so the rims should last if i don't get stupid and #4 it sounds like and is the best deal ive found yet..............around $1300, tires, rims ,lugs, stems mounted & balanced and shipped to Mich.


Thanks for the help...l8tr
