    Best deal on 8 lug 15\' rims?

    Where did everyone get their 15" wheels(preferably black) with the 8 lug pattern and what did they cost? I've had some trouble locating them locally. Thanks in advance

    I got these from discount tire in Dallas, TX. <a target="_blank" href=http://www.holsted.com/truckpics/wheel.jpg>http://www.holsted.com/truckpics/wheel.jpg</a>. They were originally white, but I had them powdercoated black. It took about two weeks to get the wheels built. They were around $40 or so a wheel, although they may be more than that. It's been a year or so since I bought em.

    <font color=blue>Mine are American Racing white wagon wheels with the Krylon touch. I got them used from another member last summer. Summit has them for cheap, as mentioned above.</font color=blue>

    Wakedog, do you have a part number and or price from 4wpw? What backspacing are they? I checked with them earlier today and they couldn't find them. I'm one of the few people who still likes 4wpw, so I don't mind going through them.

    I don't have the part # because i haven't ordered them yet, they are a special order and he quoted me $70 a rim, not sure on the backspacing(didn't get quite that detailed cuz i wanted to see if they had them).

    Has anyone actually bought black wheels or has everyone just bought white and painted them?

    Re: Best deal on 8 lug 15\' rims?

    Well, I've checked with 4WPW a few times and I keep hearing the same thing--they don't have them. A member here told me that I should make them call the Compton office to ask. I also checked w/my local Discount tire yesterday and they are supposed to get back with me tomorrow. My last resort is to buy the white wagon wheels and then paint them. I'm going to just wait. Does anyone know what backspacing the black Summit wheels have? Pep boys has the white wagon wheel with 3" backspacing, but some guys here think that is not enough.

    Well, I gave up looking for black wheels at a decent price and went with white US Wheel Trackers from Summit, too bad they're on backorder too!

    I hear ya.. I couldn't find the Black one's either..
    I'm getting Tech1 15x10 8 lug pattern from 4WPW.
    Pick two up tomorrow and the other 3 on Friday..
    4wpw actually sold them to me for Summit's price.. it's good to have internet printout's of the competitor's prices.. [​IMG].

    I've got 4 15x10's with 3/12 inches of backspacing that I'd sell you for $100, you pay to get them to you. They're chrome Barts I got from Summit. The chrome isn't holding up too good, but that doesn't seem important to you. I sell cars and had a truck come in one day with white spokes and new Wild Countrys so I yanked them for my K5 and put some 16's on the trade in. Didn't feel like grinding the calipers on the trade in just to sell it. My day phone is 573-393-1066. They've got fairly worn 33x12.50 mud radials on them now.
