So how much has everybody paid for their centerlines and tires? Typical 17x7 17x11 with the 390's on the rear. I know I'm not at the power level to need the 390's, but I look to be in the future and think they would look bad a** for the time being.

anybody know the dif in weight of the factory wheel/tire combo n the centerline's with 390's? I mean would it just be retarded for me to run the 390's @ my current power level? I will eventually need them but shoulx i spend $$ on go fast parts first?

Ok would it be just dumb for me to spend money on centerlines and 390's @ my power level...I put down 420/510 to the wheels. I plan on doing a lil more power mods soon but not much since I am on a fairly new stock block (only 7k miles) I don't have money to sink into a built block now. I'm not so much wanting them for performance right now just think they look tits, but would they hurt me running them @ my power level?

4.5 inch backspacing IIRC...


check out one of Ron's multiple threads on this topic and you'll find the answer if it's not 4.5 then it's really really close...

Just tell Carlos its for a Lightning, he'll get you set up... I would say the wheels and 390s are at the least, 10 lbs lighter than my 01-02 stockers. These wheels REALLY change the look of the truck, my favorite mod to date. If you want them, get them, you won't regret it!
