Method alloy rims. 17x8.5. Has any bought these rims. Did they fit ok, are you happy with them.
Otherwise are others thinking of purchasing. Currently $570 each and about 2 month wait. If a few of us are interested it might be cheaper as a group purchase.

Hi Peter,
I have also been considering the Method 305 NV HD 17" x 8.5 which are rated at 1651kg and would be keen to hear if anyone is currently using them. It appears Method only offer this size in 0 Offset so would be interested if someone can confirm no clearance issues.
Cheers
Mark

I think you might be waiting a bit longer than that Peter, I've had a set of the HD 2000 kg ones on order for over three months now, they are supposed to arrive in a couple of weeks but who knows as the shipping is very slow.
The zero offset will fit if you have the HD knuckles but nobody seemed too sure re the standard knuckles.

I intend to fit a set of 17"ones to #077.

Ian Jones sells 16"x 9" zero offset steel rims to suit the 325/85R15 tyres and they fit so these should be OK. (I have a set for sale with tyres if anyone feels inclined).
Cheers,
Peter

Hi all, i got a quote from MrWheelDeal in the states ( mrwheeldeal.com ). Assuming i got the right wheel in the selection they came back with just under $3k (already converted to AUD) for 6 Method wheels A/A so a bit of a saving through them. This price included shipping to Aus. They also have wheel nuts if you want them for a good price. If you do get a quote make sure to specify the OKA stud pattern (8 x 6.5") as they had to ask...

Cheers, alister

I got a set of Raceline in 16" with -20 offset.
No chance to try fitment yet, as I need to find lug nuts (wheel nuts).

(I suspect an 8" wide rim would need -12 to -20 to clear the steering gizmos, but maybe the extra inch in diameter would help?.)

We have a set of 5 American Racing wheels on order ,from Bob Jane In Noosa. I had a Quote from Mr wheel deal in the USA and it was cheaper to buy in Australia from the distributer here. I could have brought the same wheel in Black ex stock but I hate Black wheels. David Kingston has purchased Method Wheels you could try contacting him re were he purchased them from some company in Brisbane I believe.

Thanks for the message. Which American racing wheels are you purchasing. I couldn't find any which have a higher enough load rating for Oka rear axle 3.4 tonne or about 3800 lb. The 3640 lb rim rating is ok for front axle.

Yep… for race car rims one can get forged, but I have found nothing in forged rims for trucks other than duallie Alcoa rims.
It is 3420 pounds for the Raceline “rock crusher”.
