    I've spent about an hour searching through old posts but I have only found a couple of pictures. I'm thinking about buying some newer alloy take offs (from the newer HD Chevy trucks) for my '84 3/4 ton truck.

    I'm just looking for pictures of 73-87 trucks with these wheels.

    we just put some on my friends 83 suburban. They fit fine and look good for $150. The only problem is you will need conversion lug nuts if you want to use the factory caps, since gm used 9/16 studs and noe use 14mm. here is a really bad picture, ( I can get a better pic tomorrow if anyone is interested)

    I'd like a better picture if possible. Maybe one from the side, front, and a close up of one mounted showing the hub?

    Thanks a bunch :) !

    i think you should definiltey do it, if you get the right price on the wheels.

    Despite the fact that they are narrow, i think they look awesome!

    Don't have pictures, but there's definitely a 88-91 era Suburban running around here in Murphy with the new style HD wheels too.

    Thanks for the pics! I'm still thinking about it - we'll see what kind of price I can find. :)
