Re: 15 inch 8 lug wheels

My lil brother had a set of 8 lug 15" rims on his Blazer for a while. I think he gave em away or they may still be in the scarp pile. If you can get $40 out of a set you're probably doing good. If you think they're worth more try listing em on Craigslist. Maybe someone will jump on em.

Re: 15 inch 8 lug wheels

Just so you know,you can`t ask what something`s worth without subscribing.

Are you wheels factory (hub cap) type?I`ve seen one shortbed 8-lug`57 with 15" split rims from factory.I have ordered 10 x15 8-lug wagon wheels back in the day.i saved alot of money on the set of wheels and tires and the tires looked bigger because of the smaller diameter wheel.On`e disc brakes came around 8-lug 15" started disappearing.
