    15 \" 8 lug wheels?

    Hey guys,
    I figured out the 14 bolt I got was out of a 3/4 truck, so I heard that 15" rims will fit. Where can I get 15" 8 lug wheels? /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif Thanks for the help.

    4 Wheel Parts Wholesalers sells them in a couple of different styles. I paid $60 each for Chrome Modular Rock Crawlers.

    Re: 15 \" 8 lug wheels?

    And here's a related question:
    I have noticed a lot of rigs in the magazines lately that have 60s up front, and are somehow running 15" rims. Anyone know how they are doing this? I know Wagoner Machine Shop has a kit to let you run 15s on a 60, but is there a cheaper way?

    Re: 15 \" 8 lug wheels?

    I bought my chrome Bart Trucker Series rims off Summit. They are 15x10 8 lug and have a very thick center sections. I chose the 3 1/2" offset to minimize the dana60 caliper grinding, the el dorado calipers on the 14 bolt disk conversion needed no grinding at all.

    Re: 15 \" 8 lug wheels?

    how much did those bart wheels cost from summit for the 15x10 w/ 3.5" BS if you don't mind? Those are the ones I am looking at for my truck.

    Re: 15 \" 8 lug wheels?

    I bought a set of black Rockcralwer 15x10 8lug from 4WPW. Right around $50 each.
    The backspacing can be custom ordered for no additional charge (so they told me) but I got the stock backspaing which is, I think, 3.75" or so.
    TO fit them on my 3/4ton front axle, I had to do a lot of grinding. I have a dana 60 now, but have yet to grind the calipers. I figure it won;t be too bad. We'll see.
