Hey guys, I might be getting a '00 Silverado for a daily and I've always been partial to the SS rims. I was wanting to find out about the 22x10 replica versions because I think if I got it I'd either slam it or bag it on some 22s and if those would fit they would probably be what I'd get.

Where is the cheapest place to get them? I saw $275 per wheel at www.performanceplustire.com, has anybody seen them cheaper?

I saw that they have an offset of +30, does anybody know if that would tuck on a bagged/dropped truck? I've heard that it will up front because of negative camber but not out back (axle would have to be narrowed).

I would probably run a 295/30-22 because I know the 295 would fit almost perfectly on a 10" wide rim, and that tire size is only a hair smaller than a 265/35-22 which subsequently is only a hair smaller than the stock 2wd factory tire size. Plus I know that you can lay flat frame on that size tire without tubbing the firewall or anything major like that, which is a bonus.



Any info/help is appreciated! Thanks!

Ehh, its gonna be real close in the back, your going to have to roll your fenders for sure and it will still be cutting it REAL close. For the front yes it will camber in but you will have to get Hydroboost cause a 10" wheel will rub the break booster, your probaly gonna have to take a hammer to your firewall aswell.

Hydroboost is no problem... I work at a junkyard and can get one for free. I've actually already gotten several of them for people who are laying out S10s/Blazers. Instead of rolling the fenders and having it be so freakin close in the back, would I be better off narrowing the axle a hair if it was only a few hundred bux?

Thanks for the help!

That price is about $150 less than a set of 4 on eBay.
I actually haven't seen any on eBay, are they on there very often? And are you saying that the eBay 22x10s go for $1250 for a full set? or the price I put up for one wheel is $150 less than a full set goes for (that seems crazy cheap lol)?

yes that would be a VERY good choice, also you wont have to narrow it when you bodydrop it later on:D

BTW, you think you could get your hands on an extra hydroboost system? If so pm me a price.

I don't know about how often they show up on eBay, but just for grins, I did a search after reading your post.

The ones you linked are $1,100/set + $139 S&H to Griffith, IN, for a total of $1239, before tax. (not sure if you'd have to pay sales tax).

The eBay set is "Buy it now" priced at $1,277/set +$140 S&H, for a total of $1,410. The bid price is actually $40 less per set, but...

If you do a 4/6 I bet you could get away with having to roll the rear fenders alittle bit. I had people tell me I HAD to roll my fenders for my 22x9.5s with +35mm on 265/35/22. So I rolled them before I got the rims. I wish I would have waited cuz after putting the wheels on I think I might have been able to get away without rolling the rear fenders with my 4/6 drop.

yeah I'd much rather narrow the rear than roll or flare the fenders...


I need to get about 3-4 of them right now and the supply is dwindling so I'll see what I can do but don't count on it.

what does a 4/6 consist of? flip kit in the back, coils and spindles up front? If so, I'm down for the flip kit, but up front I'd like to keep stock arms and spindles since I know that when bagged you can lay flat frame on a 29.5" tire with stock arms and spindles. If I'm only gonna be able to get 2" or so out of the front without buying spindles I might just not lower it and then wait to bag it, or bag the front and slam the back. I like that the flip kit retains the factory leaves and towing rating, since I may be doing some towing with it. Unless the 6" drop is gonna leave me with so little gap above the wheels that if I tow or have a load its gonna be tuckin/rubbing...

would you happen to have any side pics of your truck that show how much wheel to fender gap you have with the 4/6 and 265/35s? If so, could you please post them? Thanks!
