    Ok these rims cam on my 85 k5 when I got it. I was wondering if anyone knew how makes them, whats the back space might be and if there 15x8's or 15x10's.

    I think U.S. wheel or eagle are the ones that make those. I could swear I have seen another pic of that truck just with 1tons and a lift.

    No not that one, maybe one that looks like it. I got that truck bone stock. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Well its not stock anymore, it has a 14 B FF under it. By the first week of Jan it will have a 350 TBI, NP241 (taking the NP208 out), and a 3/4 ton front axle.

    I had a friend who was selling these rims and they were Enki brand. I don't know the spelling, but it was the same brand as the the bling bling rims.

    I hate to say it, but I think those were a stock Je ep rim. I have seen them on more of those than anything else.

    Hope that helps,

    Several companies made rims like that. As for size and off set you would have to mease or you might be lucky and find it stamped on the insode on the rim. It may even have the manufacurer.

    unless he means older full size jeeps which are 6 lug and have the same pattern as our stock 1/2 ton stuff. My buddy is a big time FSJ guy.

    This is true. I just equated it with my buddy's 2001 Jeep Wrangler that used to have those same looking wheels on it before he changed them.
