    What widths were available with the factory steel dish rims in 8 lug pattern? I'd be interested in both 16" and 16.5" info if anyone could help.

    Thanks

    I've heard of 16.5" rims that are 9.75" wide, but have never seen them to verify if this is true. Must be somewhat 'rare?

    I had a pair of 9.75x16.5 rims on the back of a '76 GMC 3/4 ton I owned years ago. They would accept stock hubcaps. Nice wheel, no idea where it originated from, was on the truck when I got it. They are out there, but very rare. Wish I had 'em now...
