maybe another stupid question but can i just order the omf 16'' rings and drill it into my rim, (im thinking this might not be safe), but it would be only 2 holes on each spoke. factory se 5 spoke wheels.
Do it right. Send your rims to OMF and have them machined and built correctly.
the only problem is this is my daily driver, im just going for the look, no real purpose since i live in orlando and there are no trails, maybe its a bad idea, i dont know. i was just thinking of buying the rings and having them drilled in, i dont want to weld on my rim. Just trying to do it cheap and look good
9/10 times that will bite you in the ***. You can try to get a second set of the factory rims (if those are the style you like best) via ebay, craigslist, the classified section here, etc. You could then send them to one of the companies to have them street locked. That would save money in the long run vs. buying completely new wheels that have the look you want while still allowing you drive the truck daily until the modified wheels are ready.

I think the BTR's go for like $200 and change apiece which really isn't bad at all for good quality rims.
I wish.. With the cost to drill, and tax and shipping mine are $410 out the door.
Whoops. I was going off memory of what the price was on the catalog sheet. Clearly that memory isn't too good. Still, $410 isn't bad for everything. It is a custom wheel after all.
