Cool 16 & 17" rim question

Howzit & Aloha!! I was just wondering if you guys know of any manufacturer that makes & sells rims for both 16's & 17's. I'm looking for these sizes: 16x10, 16x12 or 16x14? And for the 17's, I'm looking for: 17x10 or 17x12. And the bolt pattern I have now is 5x5 but I might buy some other spacers that'll convert it to either a 5x4.5 or a 5x5.5 bolt pattern. I know this might seem like a weird topic to be discussing bout but I'm seriously thinking bout replacing my rims & tires & wanting to get something with a "Wider" footprint.......Lol!! Any help would be nice, Mahalo people!!

Re: 16 & 17" rim question

I can't give you much insight on your questions, i can however tell you that 16" rims on the WK will not work out well. They will hit the caliper/bracket.

Re: 16 & 17" rim question

So what manufacturer out there makes rims that have that "deep dish" look? Maybe a 17x10 or a 17x12? Lookin' for a wider stance....

Re: 16 & 17" rim question

if youre looking for a wider stance, why not just buy some wheel spacers?
I as well as lot of others rin 1.5" Spidertrax spacers with no issues at all and in doing so, get a wider more aggresive stance to the WK.

I'm currently running 1.5" spacers on my Dub-K & it looks pretty good but I want that "Deep dish" look. Thus the reason why i'm looking for rim sizes that have a width of @ least 10" or higher. I want the rim to stick out a lil' more than it is now.
