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

These are obviously not stock, but have been on this truck as long as I can remember. Grandpa was a simple man and I intend to keep it that way ;-)

beware, the wheel itself looks sweet but the center cap is bulky and plastic, also cracks easily with the slightest over turn on the screws holding it on. (we sell them where I work)

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

Put these beauties on today, got them for free with tires and caps from work. I put them on and got rid of the 16.5's that were all over it. I am still debating a 5 or 6 lug swap though for a wider range of drop parts and wheels.

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

Rupdog, if you go to the Long Beach swap meet, at the Veteran's Stadium. You should be able to find rims like those. I just checked the calendar and it was held today, March 1st. Next meet is March 22nd. I have heard it is not, as good as, it was a few years ago. Then again, you could find them at the Pomona swap meet, but that place is a zoo.

Sorry...NFS. I will keep you in mind however if I find another set. The ones like I have and the ones that c10addict have are the same. I had a second set, that I sold, that have the step in the outer rim. They are shown below and seem to be more common.

Just noticed your post.
Whats the scoop on the H2 rims on the truck in the background?
Year of truck? 2 or 4 wheel drive? Tire size you're running? Fitment issues?
TIA for any help!

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

Later model stock steel wheels with 73-87 hub caps. I don't like 'em. I'm thinking of calling up stockton and having a set of smooth steelies made up.
