    you can use a 15" 8 lug rim on a 3/4 or 1 ton, the trick is finding them. I believe the only steelies in production ere on military vehicles. Your only other choice is to buy aftermarket 15" 8 lug steelies for about $50 each or get the fancy ones.

    You can get 15x10 with 8 on 6.5" lugs from US Wheel. Summit sells them for $39.95 for white type 70 or 57.95 for chrome type 75.

    You can get black, but they are more money. I can think of a few companies that make them:

    Diamond racing wheels
    http://www.diamondracingwheels.com
    These guys will make whatever kind of wheel you can think of. Look at their trucker series for some pretty stout wheels.

    Or you can seriously cowboy up and get some beadlocks:

    http://www.high-impact.net/
    http://www.mrt-wheels.com/
    http://www.trailready.com/bead_lock_wheels.htm
    http://www.championwheel.com/
    http://www.rockstomper.com/catalog/wheels/beadlocks.htm

    I'm sure one of these companies has what you are looking for.

    ok, i checked them out. Am i wrong to think the stock rims are 8" wide? or are they actually 10"? i wanted to keep the same width rims all round (dun know if it makes a diff, but why bother?) if not, then i get a set of chromies /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I am getting those tires and double bead lock rims too, but not anytime soon. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    I make more money than you do but I just bought a house so they will have to wait.
    If you do get them before I do let me know what you think about them /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
