Default cant find 17x10 wheel

right now i am running 17x9 moto metal with -12 offset. i got 315/70/17. i ended up putting bush wacker pocket flares, which are huge to save my paint. i have a problem now of my tires looking too skinny. im debating on just throwing some 1.25 inch spacers to make the tires flush with flares. or ordering a 17x10 wheel with a bigger offset like -24. problem is, i cant find them. i wondering what you guys would recomend. go with wider wheel or just throw some spacers, heres what the truck looks like now[ATTACH]truck2.jpg[/ATTACH]

I would look for a wider rim or smaller flares but I am not a big fan of wheel spacers. I have the same problem with my truck I.didn't notice that I.needed wheels with 5" of backspace or less for the spindle.lift so when i add the lift and 35's I now need another set of new wheels since mine are a 5.5" backspace.

OP i found some 20x10's for ya, not sure what the backspacing is though so youll have to inquire on that youself but here are there links http://www.bigbrandwheels.com/Diamo-...ned-Face/7130/ and http://www.bigbrandwheels.com/Diamo-...ome-Rims/7129/ here is one that i know would work it even has the correct backspacing http://www.buytireswholesale.com/whe...5,412-1-211zz~ it has a 4.5" backspace which should work out really good and it is a 17x10 on 5x139.7(also knows as 5x5.5) lug pattern, it is a chrome but if you dont dig the chrome you can always get it powder coated and that generally isnt very much, i am having my factory 20's powder coated and its gonna run my roughly 80$ per wheel(that is if i dont decide to sell them first.)
