    Hey, I've been looking for a decent priced 8 lug 15x10 wheel that actually looks good too... everything I can see is all 16" (except for the wheels that are around $60 per wheel), and I don't really want to be paying the price difference for the 16" tires over the life of the vehicle...

    Ah yes... another reason I backed of the 3/4 tons. Only ones you can get are steel and from waht I hear you need to do some grinding on the front calipers to get the 15's to fit. Maybe check out US wheel... the blades look pretty cool. Not sure if they are availabe in 8 lug, but should be... I know the wagon wheel and chrome wagon wheel are available in 15" 8 lug.
