Default Picked these up yesterday...

Craigslist has been full of junk and spammers lately, but every once in a while you come across a good deal. I found these a couple of weeks ago, and was finally able to pick them up yesterday (despite the 1" of snow/sleet causing some fairly icy conditions on the highway).

I just have to machine out the center bore of the rim to fit over the Dodge hubs, and modify a set of Dodge center caps. (the H2 caps are pretty ugly and wont fit over my rear axle hubs anyway).

So I bought a set of Aluminum 17x8.5's with almost new tires (315/70-17) for $600. Less than half the price I was being quoted for just a set of tires alone.

Finally got them mounted yesterday. I like how it looks against the all black truck and my nice shiny white blade.
