    Let's see here $26.95 + 1 can black paint VS. $90. I think I'd order the white spoke steel rims from Summit for $26.95 and then go down and get 4 cans of Krylon for about $8 and do it myself. The white spoke rims I ordered from Summit got here in three days and free shipping.

    Holy cow, $90 for a black steel rim!!!!

    I paid just over $200 for a set of 5 white spoke steel rims delivered to my door, 15x10's with the 8-lug pattern, and painted them black with a couple cans of rustoleum. The rims came from Summit. They also offer either the Wheels Vintique or Bart wheels in a 15" 8-lug for around $65 per rim.

    Gold Rush has the right idea..
    I painted my 5 white wheel's with semi-gloss plasticote paint.. and 200 for the wheel's and 16.00 for all the paint..
    They look damn good to me.. [​IMG]

    I couldnt find them in the catalog either. I called them up and told them what I wanted. I believe they were about $50-60 each.

    Copied this off of Summit's webpage.

    USW-70-5080 15 x 10 in., 8 x 6 1/2 in. bolt circle, 4 1/4 in. backspacing, 70 series, white, 8-spoke wheel ... $39.95

    They ship them for something like a $12 handling fee, so this is the best deal I could find for 15" 8-lug wheels.

    6.2, I almost bought those but was concerned about the backspacing, 4.125 is the most that I've heard anyone running with 8 lug axles. I checked the US Wheel website and found some that I liked a bit better then puched in the part number on Summit's site and they popped up:
    USW-055080 WHITE TRACKER WHEEL 15X10 $48.39, a little more expensive and still not black, but they come with the 4.125 backspacing and have a different look than the spoked wheels.
