    14bff & 15\" wheels

    can anyone tell me if mine are steel or alluminum? I dont know what to look for in differences and this is the best pic i can find. [​IMG]

    With 15" steel wheels, i can fit them over a 14bff's hubs with wheel spacers without grinding or something? or no?

    Looking at the wheel design, I think they are steel. Are you using spacers to go to 6 lug? If the wheels are 6 lug, I dont think they will fit over the hub, the center hole is to small. If theyre 8 lug, they will fit fine.

    well i was planning to use the 8-6 lug spacer...using my (Steel im guessing) 6lug rims
    Should I just go ahead and buy some new 15" 8lug rims?? and no spacer?

    Im not 100% sure, but I believe you can have the hubs on the 14 bolt turned down to fit the 6lug wheels. But, by the time you go through the trouble you could buy new wheels. I think you can buy a set of white wagon wheels from summit (15x8 8lug) for about $115 to your door.

    If you go 8 lug, you need an 8 lug conversion on the front or youll have to have 2 spares.

    So, there is extra work involved either way.

    Our you can go to Discount Tire and get White wagons for $28 each. Thats what I did. But then you have to take the money to convert the front to 8 lug, so its a toss up.

    You've got to be kidding /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif Didn't you think to try a magnet?
    But from what little I can see they look to be steel.
