17" Skinny

Who makes a reasonably priced 17" skinny? Hoping for a rim in the vacinity of 17x4. Weld has them for 600 bones but that is out of line.

Re: 17" Skinny

Hey Todd, have you thought about GTO spares? They are 17x4.

Re: 17" Skinny

The spare thing is a good idea, but watch out. The 5 liter mustangs used that trick because they had an aluminum 15" skinny spare, but they were not DOT approved for highway use and a nasty tech guy could ruin your day if he's in on the trick and knows what they are. Not sure about the GTO spare but you might look into it.

Re: 17" Skinny
