8 lug wheels - what's on YOUR truck?
 
i'm having a hard time finding some vintage style 8 lugs for my C-20 and was wondering what you guys were using. I currently have some vintage US Mags slots, but they're 16.5s and need new tires. Any suggestions? Maybe swap to 5 lug? Please post some pics of your 3/4 ton ride. Thanks!!!!!

I went to the junkyard and bought some wheels in the exact same style Just 16" in stead of 16.5" and my caps fit perfect. Just standard steel wheels.

Just picked up a set of HD 2500 late model wheels. I need to get some caps and lug nuts.

yeah, i'm considering those 2500s also, but wondering how they'll look on the truck. i saw one pic of them on a 71, the sat kinda too far in. are you using spacers?

I have those on mine and don't like the look of them too much. They do sit pretty far in. I think somebody here called it the "fat guy on a small bike" look.

I don't have any good pictures right now.

I have some 16.5 slots, but I guess finding tires is going to be a pain. Oh well, those are my favorite wheels and it was a looooong time before I found mine.

We had a hard time finding something that wasn't straight bling, but looked nice and a little retro. This is what we came up with. Dick Cepeks.

Rupdog, you shouldn't have too much of a problem finding 16.5 tires.

Sinister, really like the red rims on your truck. I just don't think that I could pull that off with my Ochre and white truck.

If you`re looking for "vintage style" aftermarket/custom 8-lug wheels they`ll be 16.5s.You have a choice of aluminum slots,turbine/finned aluminum,oem center/wide,and wagon wheels in chrome,aluminum,or white.You can get all but the turbines these days in 16".

Here is my truck. It had these rims when I got the truck, and they are from a Dodge truck. To me, they kind of look like an 8 lug version of Corvette rallys.

Re: 8 lug wheels - what's on YOUR truck?
 
I like the more period correct wheels on these trucks. A few of the late model wheels look ok on these trucks but not many.


If you want a set of late model wheels off a 2500hd I have a set just like what Ace in the Hole has on his truck. Center caps and all. Came off my 04


Has anyone put a set of Mickey Thompson Classic's on one of these... they might not look to outta place.

mr bowtie....this is what you are looking for...I'm still waiting for tires for them. They are 1.5" wider than the widest stock wheel but only a "purist" would know the difference. Powder coated in Argent Silver.

Those look pretty nice. I would like to see them mounted up.
