I'm pretty sure work will custom drill your specific bolt pattern for you, so not all sets would have two or more bolt patterns.

And the flat vs raised lip is most likely a difference in offsets, advertisers like to use lower offset rims with big appealing lips most of the time.

Depending on what kind of tires they are, I'd say that's a pretty fair price. Could be better, but like I said..it's fair.

are you looking at buying the 1st ones or the 2nd ones?

the 1st one looks like knock off rota's as I don't think work every dual drilled Kai's. Knock offs on the other hand are often dual drilled.

if you are looking at the 1st ones, then why? they are 4 lug.

what is the offset? bolt pattern? width? ect about the wheels.

900 is cheap for a good set of work wheels.

17x7 +47 should be more in the 6-700 dollar range, specially if they need work.

those specs are super lame.
