    Fellow CK5ers!!

    As some of you might have seen on my other post about the New Blazer/Jimmy pages on our website, we have recently gotten hooked up with Ultra Wheels. Some of the So Cal guys have seen my friend Ryan's Jeep TJ with the brand new type 181s - he got the first set they produced!

    Anyway, if any of you guys are interested in some new wheels, check these out. For a limited time, Ultra Wheels will sell you these wheels for $106 each!! These are fully polished, aluminum alloy wheels, a brand new design. They are available in all of the regular sizes. If anyone is interested, just let me know, and I will hook you up with the guy you need to talk to at Ultra Wheel. Here is a link to the picture of the wheels:

    Just thought I'd let you guys know, Ultra really wants to get some of these wheels out in the public's eye, so if you like them this is your chance to get a killer deal on them!

    That pic does not do those wheels justice! Do you know if they make them in 8 lug pattern?

    How funny would it be if we all got those wheels, Ryan would have to find a new wheel so he wouldn't match the K5s.

    Will these fit a 1975 blazer with 4wheel drive and 6-lug pattern?

    you may think it's funny, but itsnot

    I don't see why not - is it the standard 6 on 5.5" pattern? Let me know and I will check with our rep at Ultra! Yeah, you guys are right, the pic definitely does not do them justice - they are a really good looking wheel in my opinion. I am thinking about just getting a set of 16x10s and putting them aside intil I can get my 38" Swampers and then mount it all up! [​IMG]

    Oh, and you can see a somewhat better pic of them on Ryan's jeep if you click here:

    <a target="_blank" href=http://www.autoaccessory.com/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/ExecMacro/product/AutoAccessorycom/prod1frame.d2w/report?prrfnbr=266879&amp;prmenbr=402>http://www.autoaccessory.com/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/ExecMacro/product/AutoAccessorycom/prod1frame.d2w/report?prrfnbr=266879&amp;prmenbr=402</a>

    I will also get Ryan to get me some better pics of these, as I know he took many while we were out at Truckhaven when he first got them...they really look sweet out in the sunlight!

    Guys,

    Ok Ryan is back at work (rare occasion!) ha,ha He is getting the info about bolt patterns as I write this, so if anyone else is interested, just PM me with whatever size you want and bolt pattern, then I'll have Ryan confirm its available - then we'll just hook you up with our contact at Ultra Wheels!

    Thanks for being patient guys! Ryan talked to the guy at Ultra today, he said that most of the wheel patterns we are interested in should be available within a week or two, starting with the 15" and 16" versions. Sounds like the 16.5s will be a little after that. I will keep you updated...

    Great......I need them by the end of January! That is when the 14B and 8 lug conversion goes in. KEEP US POSTED! I'll send the money as soon as they are available (16X10). Does he take Amex, Visa??? and will the 16" wheels be the same price.

    Ryan says the guy is out of the office til after Christmas - but he said that the 15 and 16" would be available "shortly" - I would think by New Years definitely - but I will keep you all posted! Soon as I hear, you hear...sorry for the delay (these manufacturers reps can be a real pain in the arse!)
