    Check out National Tire and Wheel's line of Eaton wheels. They are a well made, steel wheel- available in 8-lug 15x10, with a backspace of 3". Not real happy with the runs in the paint finish though. Of course, after a few good offroad runs, who could tell? todd

    I am going to be converting to 8 lug soon and the best price I found for 15x10 steel wheels is $66.39 at Summit racing. There phone # is 1-800-230-3030. Catolog is FREE and you get a new one every couple of months. The price is for white powercoat wheels and the crome ones are $98.69 each.

    I run the Eaton 15x10s on my front 8 lug 10 bolt, and reaf 14FF. They're great, with a little grinding to the caliper and stuff.

    Just about anywhere that sells wheel can get them, but Summit and Nat'l Tire would probably be your best bet!

    I just got a set of 15x10 whitespokes from Summit Racing. They were $39.95/wheel and Summit shipped them for a flat rate fee of $6.95 for all 5 wheels and were delivered in 3 days.

    I originally was interested in the Eaton wheel from National Tire and Wheel, but they were going to be over $80 per wheel with shipping and take 2-3 weeks for delivery.

    Ok stupid question...I am going 8 lug soon and was going to go 16 inch but 15 inch tires are much cheaper. What clearance problems am I going to encounter going 15 inch?

    G_R_I_N_D_E_R!!![​IMG] You'll have to grind the top of the caliper a little and possibly some of the backing plate too, don't worry its plenty thick and so is the caliper. The amount you'll need to clearance depends on the back spacing of the wheel.
    For mine it was more than I thought it would be, but not enough to affect strength or safety.

    On my FF14 bolt the 15" rims cant clear the drums can they? I was planning on going rear disc but it mught be nice to have a backup plan in case the money fairy dosent make her visit on time.
