ok im going to be gettin a new set of rims here real quick. ill be selling my pro comps and gettin helo 819 cannons in a chrome 17x10 with 4.5 bs. what ive got is pro comp 1079s in a polished 17x9 with 4.75 bs. my only questions are these..

1. how can i tell if the rims ive got are hubcentric? the 1079s are offered in both hubcentric and non hubcentric. i need to know this for when i purchase the new ones and for when i sell my current ones. also can someone explain the hubcentric deal to me please?

2. would someone take a look at these 2 wheels and tell me if theyll be good on my truck? such as offset, hub bore, backspacing compared to my 1079s offset, hub bore, backspacing, etc and give me their opinion on the both of them?


heres the pro comp 1079s

Hey man I would go with a straight spoke wheel if I were you I think it would look a lot better than another bullet hole wheel:imo

i dont have to many choices when it comes to 17x10s. i love the way the stone crushers look and these are the closest match.

Tell me about it. When I was looking for 37" tires that were made for 16" wheels it seemed like all the 37s that I wanted were made for 17s or bigger. That was my dilemma.
