I'm hoping not to have to spend 300-400 for rims. Trying to stay cheap so I can buy tires soon. If I have to I can always just buy one more Eagle Alloy, I think it's only 130.

That would probably be cheaper then buying 4 used stock rims and would look better. Personally I don't care what rim my spare is on it'll just be on there until I get a new tire or get the other fixed.

I know what you mean. I'm hoping to have the same rim and tire so I can rotate in the spare. I might be picky, but I like consistency.

Anywho, I would like everything to be consistent for obvious reasons, and I think switching back to stock would be the cheapest and easiest way. Before I go shopping around, does anybody out there have some stock rims they want to sell? Here are a couple pics to give you an idea of what I'm talking about: https://plus.google.com/photos/11385...CLWEmYz8wpz1Lg
When you're ready to buy tires you should check out Sears... I priced out my GY Duratracs online and found that discount tire and tire rack had some of the best prices, but discount tire is local and I didn't want to spend money on shipping. So I priced it out on their website, then called Sears just to check and they actually beat Discount Tire by $170 for all 5 tires, mounted and balanced... Also I already had a Sears account so I also got 12 months/ no interest which was an added bonus so I didn't have to cough everything up at one time

It's best to go with aluminum anyway. The steel rims are really heavy.

I'll definitely check them out. I was also thinking about getting some treadwrights. Has anybody had any experience with retreads?

Lost Trail is a good beginner trail. I wanted to run something more challenging this weekend, but if that doesn't work out I would be happy to take you down there.

Cool. Let me know. No worries if it doesn't work out. There's plenty of dirt for me to find out there.
