Re: 8 lug wheels - what's on YOUR truck?

Here's my current wheels. 750 x 16 x 6 "Widow Makers." Haven't seen any other trucks with white hubs. I'd like to keep the same look but definitely want to get rid of the current rims. Will probably get the 16 x 8 Vintiques and have them powder coated white. Does anyone know if Vintiques will do powder coating? I know American Racing makes custom wheels as well.

Re: 8 lug wheels - what's on YOUR truck?

8 bolt 15 inch black wagons.
Tires are 35x12.50/15 Faulken Wild Peak A/T's.
Will be putting steelies with factory caps on as soon as I can find them. So far I haven't been able to find 8 bolt 15" wheels that will hold the caps on.
I may have to go with a 16" wheel. Just trying to get around buying tires since my Faulkens are still in great shape.

Bo322 - let me know if you find 16" wheels - I can't find any for sale! All I find are 16.5" or junkyard wheels

Re: 8 lug wheels - what's on YOUR truck?

JNDewes, there's 16" out there.
This is what I've got on mine. Even though they're Ford, it's the same bolt pattern and same nubs for hubcaps.

Wheel Vintiques is probably the best option.

Re: 8 lug wheels - what's on YOUR truck?

I found wheels on Vintiques:
https://www.wheelvintiques.com/view-catalog

I know they have 16" 8 lug wheels and they may have 17" wheels.

Be aware that your hubcaps may not fit as tight - even with a powedercoat, I've lost hubcaps on potholes. You might consider applying some tape to the hubcap lugs to ensure a tight fit.

Wow - those sure look wide for 8"? If you didn't post them as 8" wide, I would've thought they were 10" wide. are they 4.25" of back space?

I bought them naked and had them powder coated locally. They were same price naked as powder coated black. I think having them do the wheels in white was a good bit more.
