    looking for pictures of the stock 8 lug steel wheels with larger tires. i have access to free steel 8 lug wheels, i think they're 16.5x7 though and dont know if i can get a 35x12.50 on them. pictures would be great. thanks.

    Most of the stock 8 lug wheels I have seen are 6" wide :rotfl::rotfl:

    I don't think you will get a 12.5" wide tire to fit on a stock width wheel. I had 33x12.5 tires on an 8" wheel and that's about as narrow as I would get.

    i've got a set that are currently on my truck, but soon i'm switching to an h2 hummer wheel, so i won't need them. they are 2 months old, were shipped bare, so i simply poof-canned them flat black. they are the round-hole style, 15x10 2.5" BS to clear 1 ton calipers. let me tell ya, those bastards are EXPENSIVE to buy new.

    New 8 lug GM wheels, steel or aluminum are 16x6.5"

    See the pics of 315/75R16 on these wheels. It equates to a 35x12.5
