I don't think they are shipping yet, but I'm anxious to see them too.

I know they have just started shipping the 17x8 magnums, but the 17x9s are still back ordered. Maybe it's the other way around. Regardless, they are just now trickling out.

I think they are really missing the boat here. They'd sell a bunch of SBP ones.

man those things have to be sooooo heavy. I think you could find a better looking lighter wheel.

Their site lists availability as of December 1.

I find this a little strange though. A set of four 17 by 9 is priced at $699.99. Their regular price for one 17 by 9 is $190.99 but on discount now at $125.99. So for a set of four bought as singles is $503.96.

This sounds a little too good. Who discounts a new product weeks before it is actually released? Is there something Year One knows that a buyer should as well?

New Low Price

I know, this is coming across as being cynical but honestly, who wouldn't think something is up. I'd love to see pictures of these wheels on a 71/72 Plymouth B-body.

Mike.

I'll have to see them in person, the earlier versions were pretty damn ugly, these look better in pictures but I wouldn't be in any hurry to buy them theres better looking wheels out there...

Hated those wheels when they came from the factory and the bigger ones are just more ugly wheel to look at with silly tires with no sidewall mounted on them.

For those who gotta have these type of wheels get out your wallet as there are other options $$$$

I agree with most eveyone else. I do not like the large dia Rallye's but the large dia Magnum 500 type wheels do not look that bad, but still not for me.

at $100 a wheel, that would be a great price. They do look a lot better then those ones above. Would a 9" rim be too wide for the front though?

"Heavy" is relative, and I don't think anyone buying these will have weight as a primary concern. If the weight of the cast Magnums is any indication (26-28 lbs), fully dressed and tires mounted these won't be any heavier than 15" steel rallyes. I weighed a dressed 15x8 with a 275-15-60 mounted and it was 58 lbs.

I think they look pretty good myself. Way better than the overpriced billet versions currently on the market.

I like them

And the new cast Magnum 500s too. I'd love to see either one on a 71-74 B body... but I keep reading that tire size is tricky.

Don't want to be stuck running O-rings... I have some huge wheel wells to fill.

I pulled the trigger last night as they were only $125 apiece - $503 but they raped me on shipping to montana (another $106) so it comes out to about $150 a rim. Not bad considering everything else available out there. And I looked on the site today - the special must be over? they are back up to $220 a rim, I did skip the centers for now (over $300 ouch) I'll have to test fit them first on my car and see if i actually like them, I may end up powdercoating them satin black but I'll take some test fitting pics for you guys and you can be the judge if you like them or not. I wanted the magnum 500's until I saw them on a charger in the new mopar action? magazine, I'm hoping these rims work out...

I bought the 17x9" ones FYI
