    OK, now that the build-up of my truck is approaching I can't seem to find a set of 15x10" 8 lug wheels. I can't even find a set of 15x8" 8 lug wheels. Everyone is telling me that no one makes them anymore. Some stores are telling me that they can get a set in 2-4 weeks. Unfortunately, I need them by next week. Any ideas (or wheels for sale out there)? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I know. I was gonna buy them from Jeff, but I wanted 10" wide. Should have picked them up. Guess I don't have much choice left on size though since no one makes a 15" 8 lug wheel anymore according to all the manufacturers. /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    National tire said that there is a steel shortage and their Eatons are 4+ weeks out. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif
    Called Tyres international and they charge $26 per wheel to ship. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    Called summit and they do have some that I will get if no one local has any. They don't charge for shipping either.
