    I just remembered that I have my stock steel ralley wheels (15x8) and was wondering will they hold up to hard wheeling? I mostly do rockcrawling, but will be jumping the truck as well. I am setting the truck up for tough truck competion for Truckin Nationals here in Phoenix next year. Thanks guys.

    Stock steelies are strong, you shouldn't have to worry about them.

    Thats good to hear, That way is alot cheaper than new wheels. I guess if I dent them I will buy new rims then.

    i realize that it's not the size but how you use it, but if the tire is 12" wide or more, than i don't think the 8"rims will cut it.

    just a thought
