    Anybody know of any 8 lug wheels similar in style to the stock 6 lug rally wheels? I may convert to a 14 bolt but I'd like the wheels I use to look similar to the ones I have now.
    Thanks

    Not that I have seen. GM shoulda got smart and made 3/4 and 1 ton rally wheels, (just like the 15 inchers in style) which it appears they never did : (

    My dad has a set of these on his "1974" 3/4 ton, and they don't have the multi-spoke sections similar to the 1/2 ton ones. I believe the later 3./4 ton steel ones that I am speaking of are pretty similar to teh early 16" wheels, in that they have 4 "spokes", if you want to call them that.

    I guess those new syle rally wheels are as close as I'd be able to get. Anybody know how wide thore are? Would I be able to fit 285's or 295's on them?

    the ones I got were 6 1/'2..... 245s on 'em.
    He had a set of 285 BFGs (that didn't quite fit my budget) and said they'd fit.... but he may have been just trying to push the sale of the BFGs....

    One thing you have to watch on the newer ones is the "center caps" Newer trucks either don't have the external hubs, or they are much shorter, because with the newer wheels on my dads 8 lug front Dana 44, the center caps won't fit, you'd have to cut them out to make them work. FWIW
