    hey guys, i just bought 3/4 ton dana 44 and 14 bolt with 410 gears for $300, finally. seemed like a pretty good deal to me, considering junk yard wanted $500 for each.

    but i am having 1 problem. i really like the black steelies, but i cant find any 8 lug 15" ones, summit has some, but cant be shipped until july 19th, adn jegs no longer has that size. i think 4wheelparts has them, but they are like $75 and summit used to have them for like $45.

    anybody know of a place that i can find them?? ive got a 2-tone black/red k5 and i think the black would look sweet

    thanks

    Summit has the US wheel 15x10 8 lug white ones for $43.
    Ship date tomorrow.
    Those are the ones I have used and will be buying again in the near future.
    If black is yer flavor.. use some scotch brite on them and paint em black. ;)

    Just ordered the black Cragar series 342 "D" window 8 Lug on 6.5, 15" by 8" from Summitt for $39/ea. They had all sizes of backspacing in stock when I called Weds. afternoon. Hell of a good deal.

    I'ld say no. The aluminum is thicker than steel wheels for structural purposes. A 16" rim just barely fits over the front brake/steering components.

    Check these guys out.

    Somebody else posted the link a while back. Look at the bottom of the main page at the last two American Eagle Style. I know nothing about them, but that's a good price. Notice it says "Prices are for a set of 4 Wheels." If anyone has any info let me know. Thinking about them for my DD. Hell, I should have bought those for my K5.
