    Hey I'm looking for a set of 15x10 steel wheels (6 bolt) that I can paint black and put on my blazer. It seems that the new look is to go yellow, with black wheels and accesories/top/grill/steps. To tell you the truth I think it looks damn cool. Land Roverish.. any way..

    Also I have a set of 32"x10-11??x15" tires right now. Would the 15x10 wheels be too wide for these? I plan on getting 33x12.5x15 later on.

    If you don't care how the wheels look too much, you could go to a junkyard and see if you could find some and paint them black. The tires you have are probably 32x11.50x15 15x10s will be fine for this.

    Hey thanks for the info but I think that I am going to go expensive and get a set of these with 33x12.50x16 and paint them black(or have them professionally done so it will last)
    I don't do any off roading so I don't have to worry about getting them scratched.. ya ya .. call me a trailer queen :)

    Also how much could I sell the original rallies with 4 fairly new tires? I was told they had about 4000 miles on them.

    Oh one more thing.. What the hell is this vehicle in the background?? Is that an older 70's bronco with some weird body work?

    Truck in background...

    The "truck" in the background is a Land Rover Defender 90.
    Cool out of the box off-road truck. They stopped bringing it over here in 1999 because Land Rover refused to redesign it to accept Airbags.
    Here is some info on it:

    Ford now owns Land Rover and will probably (rumors) use the Defender as a Bronco of new.

    You need to forget about those expensive rims and come buy mine. I have 4 15x10 inch, 6 lug, steel wagon wheels sitting in my backyard right now. They are beat up, but you could sandblast them and paint them.

    Capt. Kaos: Does this mean that new J**ps have airbags too? What's next for them? Let me guess, push button 4wd and lo range? LOL

    As you can see I haven't payed attention to new jeeps in a long time.

    Re: Truck in background...

    You got it. In 1997, Chrysler/Jeep put dual airbags in the new TJ's. My 97 TJ has them. Chrysler did however set up the sensor to be less sensative so they don't deploy in offroad bumps and bashes. No, no pushbutton 4x4 as of yet, but the new Cherokees are supposed to have IRS. They should put the NV4500 and a lower geared Transfer case in them. Now that would be nice.

    Jason !! I\'m interested in your 32\'

    I'm keeping my Steel... That way I won't feel bad if I smack a curb or serious pothole..
    Steel won't give in as easily as Aluminum or other alloys..
    I'd be interested in your 32 inch tires :)
    That way I could get rid of my Firestone Wilderness AT's..
    Which aren't on the damn recall list.. lol


    It's better to have it and not need it. Than to need it and not have it !
