The heart wants what the heart wants.

And mine wants a set of 17 or 18 inch centerline scorpion billet wheels with a 5x5 bolt pattern for my 95 Silverado. 

Nothing has been showing up around here, but i figured that, with all of us hunting for ways to enable each other via craigslist, offerup, faceballs, etc, we may as well use our enabling powers for good!

If its a really far piece from me (im near Charlotte nc) i figure we can figure out a grm relay or something. 

Trying to stay below $400 for the set. Tires optional. Prefer a square set (all same size, width, and offset)

I'll keep an eye out, but you may want to get your heart looked at.

These are really close, but not exact. They’re also overpriced.

Thanks yall.  Pete: closer than i have been able to find! 

These wheels just do it for me.  Like no others ever have. Dunno why, but they do.

When we asked our pediatrician if we should make our 4 year old son stop sucking his thumb, she replied that generally orthodontists were cheaper than phyciatrists.

I once saw an ElCamino that had a nice set of those wheels.

Aren't they left and right side directional models so the "spokes" are oriented in same direction from side to side?

I believe the Centerline wheels are side-specific, unlike the cheap versions you used to see at Pep Boys.

I'll keep an eye out for them.

From my search of FB, I think you're right - not directional. 

I found a few sets on FB, but only the 16" versions look like the one you posted above. There's a 17" set in CT for $555, but they look slightly different.  Not square either.

"And mine wants a set of 17 or 18 inch centerline scorpion billet wheels with a 5x5 bolt pattern for my 95 Silverado. "

 

If there was ever a litmus test for being born in the south and coming up through highschool in the mid-90's, the above sentence is about it.

 

I have nothing useful to add, good luck with your search!

The 17 you showed is correct as well. Centerline changes the design slightly with diameter differences. 

If they were square and 5x5 or 5x127.....

The 5 on 5" is what is making it difficult for me to find a set.

Negatory good sir. Anything radical would involve bags for this one. Now that you mention it I could regrow the axles and front rotors. But I do believe that would be inviting problems that I don't want to deal with on a truck used for Towing

Hell, yall have seen my truck. And my 90s style neon. And my......

I would consider redrilling a set of 4 3/4", if you can find them cheap enough.

In reply to Cooter :

Problem is that they were dual drilled 5x4.5 and 5x4.75 straight frim centerline. So i think they would have to be welded, then redrilled. Ehich i dont think is exactly safe, to be honest. Spacers would be an option, except the common backspace on these pushes it eith spacers out past the fender lip.....
