Re: Steel Wheeled 4x4's??

Do you want any wheels that are steel or are you looking for the stock style that takes the small hubcaps. Cause when these posts come up you are going to get every wheel thats made of steel =)

Thumbs up Re: Steel Wheeled 4x4's??

I did notice that CG ... and I was looking to see the 'original factory' steelies with and without hubcaps. I am considering switching my black steel wheels for white ones, and wanted to see different trucks and color combinations.

IT's all good though ... but lets see those factory steels too.

Thanks.

NICE!!!

White seems to out number other colors by 2 to 1. It looks good with and without hubcaps too.

Re: Steel Wheeled 4x4's??

Here's my 72 K20

Kelsey Hayes 16.5 x 9.75 powder coated with 33" tires

I have an original set of hubcaps, but I think it looks better without them

Thank you.

No lift. Just stock HD replacement front springs. The original springs were sagging pretty bad. Rear is all all original.

Question Re: Steel Wheeled 4x4's??

Really ... Wow!

I have LT285/75 R16's on my truck and I have been wondering how low I can go without rubbing. With 48 lbs of air they measure 31.75 inches tall on the truck.

Not trying to deviate from the Thread ... was just curious.

Thanks.

Re: Steel Wheeled 4x4's??

Here's my 72, got a 350 Goodwrench crate motor, a new bed floor, picked up 410 frt and rear ends (it has a 69 frame with drums up front now), going to disc's up front and 14 bolt rear, lots of work but I now have most of the parts I need to get it back together.
Those are 35's with a 4" lift and some not so correct dog dish caps

Who made those tires? They still around, and what size are they?
Dig the 8 lug and lock ring set up on a K5, not something you see everyday that's for sure.

Re: Steel Wheeled 4x4's??

Those are old General Grabbers that aren't available anymore to my knowledge. They are on 16" split rims and if memory is right are like 7.50 wide and maybe 31" tall. Surprisingly the tires are in great shape. I think they were purchased right before the prior owner put my 69 K20 in storage and since I bought truck the K20 and now the K5 have been garaged which has kept the sun off of them except when I'm out driving.
