    Does anyone have a set of these slotted mags I'm finding out that they mite not fit in the front when I go to the 8 lug front I just bought two 15x10's Doctor4x4 has two 16.5x10's just not a four of one kind so it looks like I'm going to be looking for the 16.5's
    Thanks

    I have got a set of five 16.5 X 10 eight lug slots.
    I got them off of a late seventy's Ford Van - they are in good shape but they have years of brake dust and dirt on them. I was going to pollish them up and use them but I am now going with some steel rims.
    Let me know if you are interested.

    Cool what would you want for those? And do you use a 16.5 now? I hear about some people getting flat tires real easy when they air down. Oh what a pain in the a$$ this is. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I paid two-hundred for the set , so you can have them for the same.I am not looking to make money , just not loose any. I am now running 16" rims but it is because I am running smaller E rated tires now - not the larger mud tires . I never had a problem w/ 16.5's but I always kept good air pressure in them.
    Let me know , I can take a picture of them if you would like.

    16.5's can't handle running very low on air. On rims exactly like you're looking for, I used to try 15-18 lbs. running in snow but gave that up after loosing 2 tires from them popping off the rims. I now never run less then 20 lbs. 16.5's have no safety bead to keep tire on rim. 15's & 16's have this feature.

    I'm being hard headed about this, But I've changed my mind on these wheels As much as I would like to have a set and boy would I /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif I've been thinking about going with 17in or maybe a 16in.
