Whose on Steelies? Post 'em up!

If you're running stock, aftermarket, or any other kind of steel rim, toss up some pictures! Please try and note what kind of rim, tire and suspension setup you've got too!

I'll start


Hoping to strip and repaint the hub caps and rims, then toss on some new meats too. What is a good size for tires?

I think the rims are 16" x 8", but I could be mistaken on the width. Tires are 265/70R16. I actually had to hunt these down after selling the ones that were on the truck originally. Stock suspension.

More pics please! What is your suspension setup? What size tires?

I think I might have to copy you and pick up a set of those wheels, they are killer and cheap!

I was originally planning on sanding and repainting my wheels, but I think yours will fill out the wheel wells much better.

It's have 2.5 in spindles and one cut coil in the front and a flip kit and a couple of leaves removed in the rear. There's a little more detail in my build thread in my signature at the bottom, but I haven't updated it in a while.

[QUOTE=thirdstreettito;3064296]68' C10 stock suspension(coil). Stock steelies/caps.

Those are s-10 caps( 80's aluminum ) not c-10 caps, check brendonak white 67 for the "stock" style caps.
