YAY Snowflakes

Postby PaducahIsuzuGuy » Tue Dec 29, 2015 2:07 pm

My first Passport had 16 inch snowflakes. I've owned 2 Rodeo's since then and neither had snowflakes. Rolled into the local junkyard today and a new rodeo had just been pulled out onto the lot. Picked these up for $80 which included a master window switch and a passengers window switch.

Not a bad haul all that for $80... really excited to get them prepped and onto my truck!

Man I thought I got a good deal when I bought my 5 snowflakes for $100. Good find and if I was you I'd see what else you could steal from them.

Nothing aside from the look really. They are on the rare side as far as Isuzu wheels go.

They also have almost no offset, this causes the wheel to move "out" from the truck more than most. So if you had say a later rodeo with stock wheels with +38 offset. The snowflakes with the 0 offset would move your wheel centerline 38mm out from the hub. 38mm --> ~1.5 inch. so almost like wheelspacers without the spacers.

I just posted a separate question: What's the deal on Snowflakes? I just put it up on this forum. Please enlighten us who are new to Isuzu.

Mostly the look. They are also a heavy duty rim with the right bore size for our trucks.

There also all 7 inch wheels, where a lot of the other Isuzu wheels are 6 inch, That means larger tires can usually be mounted on them and they LOOK like they belong on an Isuzu.

I usually don't like the black vs no color snowflakes. but have to say yours look great. Must be the desert tan and black go together very well.

^True!^

15" snowflakes on my 1st Gen Trooper really widened the stance. Plus yeah, they are the best looking Isuzu wheels that were made IMO.
