TDW, They are a 0 offset(4"), 17X8, so no real gain over the 17X9 w/less than 5" BS, that you're looking for... Right now, the only mfgrs making an aluminum, 17X9/17X8 beadlock(that I'm aware of) with a *normal*(less than 4") BS is Walker and Allied I'm still holding my breath on Walkers and the Allied Monsters are$$$ ...Of course you can always buy some$$ Centerline or Weld forged at $$$ then turn around and put more $$ into beadlock'n em:shaking:

FWIW, TR is going away from the MickyT CIIs and selling the Extreme Alloys(identical to Classic IIs) in a 17X9 w/ 4" BS. They are supposed to have them soon.

Walker said he'll have wheels at Reno for those who ordered them. But if you didn't it may take a while to catch up. And Allied's are adjustable backspace! they will be 7 lbs lighter in about 6 months......redesign forged. and more $$$$$$$
