Not starting one but sharing a link to one already in progress...

The Chevytruck forum has started it's group buy for these wheels and you won't believe the price they've got.

I ordered a set of four 20X8.5in rims for my truck for $605 (+shipping+tax) in gray. These are the same 5X5 bolt pattern we need for B bodies.

They are offering sets of 4 rims in 18 and 20" in different width combos

Group buy thread is:

Second group runs till next Thursday (4/1/10-no joke) at 3pm
If you've interested in these wheels these links are worth a serious look!
Contact them to join the buy

I ran a comparison for a stock Impala SS wheel and an 18X9.5 BOSS wheel at: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=130963

the boss wheel is 10.37" overall width and -4mm offset (5.031" backspacing)
Calculator said:
"1mm LESS clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 21mm"

So about 3/4" closer to the fender lip than SS wheel

18X8" wheel (+2mm offset, 8.876 width, 4.517 BS) compares as:
"12mm MORE clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will RETRACT 4mm"

Hmmm....

I'm thinking the 20's are sounding good to me. Anyone running something like a 2653520?
20x10 test fit, My measurements came out to me only being able to run a 285 without rubbing anywhere on the inner fender.

about to buy a set. should i do 18x8 all around or 18x8 and 18x9.5? i'm still undecided after going through the boss 338 thread we have
18s. the 20s have no lip at all for the rear, I have a brand new boss wheel with a 275/40/20 tire, Never been driving on(Rim) that i will sell

Offset = +20mm(backspace 6.25) 20 x 10
Offset = +14mm 20 x 8.5

I ordered mine last Saturday night. I figure they should be here either by Friday, or first thing next week. I will keep you posted.

rears

easy79, Please make sure to post pics as I wanted to get the same.
Only thing to consider was the lip in the 20s versus that in the 18s, rears of course.
