    Just checking to make sure - isn't the bolt pattern on a 14 bolt FF 8 on 6.5'' ??

    (Not to make anyone jealous, but I might be getting some new wheels from Ultra by one of my friends who is going to SEMA!) [​IMG] The Rep wanted to make sure of the bolt pattern, see if they had any...

    Thanks - I was pretty sure that was it, but I had heard that some of the newer ones were something like 8 on 170mm or something?

    Keeping my fingers crossed, I might even be able to get some Swamper SSRs out of the deal!! Yahoo!! Ultra has some new "beadlock" look wheel they want to publicize...

    Well, you know the best way to publicize is to really get them out in the publics eye, sooo i'll be gracious enough to offer my rig as a test mule too, you know so they can see what they look like on an older truck as well, to get a different perspective, so you might want to mention that to your friend, ok?

    I don't know exactly when they started using 170mm but it wasn't in '73. You'll be fine.

    I believe the 170mm showed up in the mid 80's

    Special thanks to those lost from IAFF Locals 94 and 854 - You shall never be forgotten

    Oh well i wouldn't be able to afford them anyway.

    Well if this place is a little ma and pa store your probably shooting a little high, but if it's a BIG company your probably shooting way too low.[​IMG]
