    Best place to buy 15\" 8 lug rims?

    Where is a good source for some 15" 8 lug rims with 2.5-3.5 backspacing. What backspacing do you like or think is best?
    Thanks keith

    national tire & wheel... quick delivery, and they have Eaton HD steel wheels. Beefy and priced pretty well too. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I don't know if you have Les Schawb tire centers back there or not, but I got my 15x8 8 lug whitespokes for $27 each. The 15x10's were about $10 more I think. The 15x8s have 4" backspacing. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Place up in Rome stocked them back when I check. I can't remember the name of the place to save my life. They were more of a Tire wholsaler but would do public sales if you walked in. He had them in stock. White Wagons $35 seems to ring a bell. I can tell you how to get there. 411 from cartersville. When you get to where the car dealers are before you start heading into rome at the interchange make a right at the dealer. I want to say it's Blackwood and pretty sure I'm right on that. The place is on the left past the dealers body shop. Doubt they are open at this time of the day on Sat. I don't think they are open on Sunday. I'll e-mail you the name of the place if it comes to me. Might also try Discount tire/ Big 10. they have a big distribution werehouse in town and might be able to get you them the next day.

    There's only Les Schwab's in CA, OR, WA, UT, ID, MT and NV. Too bad too, they have good warrentys and awesome customer service at the ones I've been too... /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Those Eatons from national tire and wheel are usually backlogged up to 6 weeks, they make them by request. You can get the same style wheel with the same 1/4 thick center with various backspacing from Bart Wheels.
    Summit sells them at as Super Truckers
    http://store.summitracing.com/default.asp?target=search.asp%3FType%3Dbykeyword%26Part%3Dbart%26Search.x%3D1%26SearchType%3DBoth

    I run the 15x10 3.5 backspacing with 38's and I'm very happy with them!

    To bad ya'all don't have Les Schawb's back there...$27 for the 15x8 8 lug white spokes, (these are what I run) And I think $35 for the 15x10's. I think the chrome 15x10 wagon wheels are like $49.

    I'm looking for new set of tires and rims too. Anyone know where I can find Ultras on line? I am having difficulty finding them locally. How about internet specials?

    Thanks,

    Bob

    I have a pretty nice set of 15x12 8 lug white wheels with the holes in the middle. Their made for 36" and up tires. I'd be willing to part ways with them if anyones interested.
