    I need to get some stockish wheels on PI so it will fit thru the lift at the shop so I can yank the tranny. All I have managed to find so far is dually wheels. I know I could put them on backwards, but that defeats the purpose. I need to narrow the width. Will the wheels fit over the caliper and such on a single wheel front?

    I went to the bone yard and picked up some small, stock 3/4 ton wheels and tires for $40. I use them to put mine on lifts and get them into the garage and such.

    Thanx guys. I knew that would be the answer, but wasnt sure. Looks like the hunt continues. I need to find something fast since I cant get the tranny out till I get at least 2 wheels to fit the front so it will go thru the lift.

    try a tire & wheel place and 4x4 shops they usually keep the old wheels that they take off. They usually have some UGLY chrap wheels that still work and you can get cheap

    I have a hook up thru the shop w/ the tire shop we use. The only wheels he has are 16.5s and he has no junk tires to toss on them. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif I joined a club last nite so I am hopingthe "network" will help. Even if I can just borrow them for a few weeks. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif
