Series 87 Rims

I just installed a new pair of the Series 87 steel rims from trek outfitters. The have loads of offset and i was able to clear my 33x12.5 without any rubbing, and I think they look great. I am still waiting on the OME shocks and springs to show up so i can actually get some articulation without grinding the fenders.

Looks good. Why don't you spray paint your front hubs gloss black.

Those look really nice and that's at the stock height? I'm guessing it will look even better with the OME stuff.

You are running the 16x10's right? Do you remember the weight on those? I'm liking that the are made in the USA.

Thanks, thats a real good idea to spray the centers. They are real heavy though but alot of that is the the tires I am running. I will post again when i get the OME shocks and springs in

I finally got the OME suspension on there and I got a little greedy and threw in some spacers on the axle too. I took it out for the maiden voyage today, and really put her threw the ringer. I did some rock crawling alot of mudding broke some trail in the snow, etc. It worked great as I am sure everyone already knows. the ride was stiffer than I anticipated but and i took the sway bars off so it was real interesting. I documented the build for the most part probably should make a build up thread for that. I also played around with a helmet cam I have for skiing and shot some footie which i plan on also posting.
