    i put a 14ff on my blazer and i'm sick of looking at the "ghetto rims" so i was wondering if there is a rim like the eagl 589 or AR Baja's that come in an 8-lug pattern that would fit a true one ton and not one out of a 3/4 cause thats what mine is .........

    hola

    I dont get the true one ton vs 3/4 ton thing but there are tons of rim options in 8 lug
    in fact the eagle 589 is offered in 8lug. <a target="_blank" href=http://www.natltire.com/ntw0799/pages/eagle.html>http://www.natltire.com/ntw0799/pages/eagle.html</a>

    is this a joke post? or are you that lazy that you couldnt type eagle 589 into a search engine?

    An aluminum 15" wheel will not fit over 1 ton stuff. You need to step up to 16s or 16.5. Steel wheels will fit fine though.

    As far as I know the only rims you can buy that are 15" 8 lug will be steel. Wes said Weld used to make an alloy wheel in 15" 8 lug with about a 2" backspacing but not sure if they still do or the cost. I have US Wheel White Tracker 15x10 8 lug on my 1 ton axles.

    <font color=blue>I have some 15x10 whitespokes I got used from another member and I spraypainted them black almost 2 years ago. Get some 15x10s and pick up some grinding disks on the way home

    <font color=blue>Yes, depends on what backspace you have. What do you mean by "those"?

    <font color=blue>Yep. I run 4 1/8" backspace, you'll just have to grind more off the top of the caliper since the wheel will cover more of it.

    I ordered them through Summit but they are not a stock item. It took almos 8 weeks to get them and the reason was they were in a 1200 wheel order that Summit placed and by the time I found out that I could have just had US Wheel drop ship them straight to me they were already on the truck heading to the Summit wharehouse. I painted them silver and will probably repaint them black this year.

    I had to do a good bit of grinding on the calipers since I went with 4 1/8" backspacing. The rear fit fine and yes I have the big brake 14ff 1 ton axle.

    Yeah check out the US Wheel Tracker series. They are a really good looking wheel. Im pretty sure I'm going to order them for my 1 ton. Those are about the most "normal" looking steel wheel I could find.
