    WTF can I buy 15x10 w/ 3.5\" BS rims for a GOOD price...??

    I need some rims for my new axles (Dana 60 & 14B FF). My mom said hey for Christmas I'll get em for you, even better. I am looking for 15x10, 8 lug with 3.5" back spacing (calipers have been ground to fit this size...) apparently this doesn't exist in North America (after calling a bunch of places and speaking to people who know less then me I am frustrated to say the least!). I'm not even sure now what size on the lug pattern I need at this point after the guy at Summit. He had me very confused. I was going to get some black Rock Crawlers and be done with it... but again SOL to me from what I can tell they don't make this size. So... what are my options? I was wanting the Rock Crawlers because they were about $50 each. I need to stick with a 15" rim the tires (38.5x14.50x15) I have are that size and brand new, new ones are NOT an option. So basically this... who know where I can get rims to fit for a decent price? And to make it harder not white spoke. I hate those things with a passion. Actually spoke period I hate. Yeah I know I am too picky. But if I can find something else that'd be what I want. Thanks... /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Ive got a set of the chrome modulars(holes around the rim). I bought them at 4wpw for $45 each(I think). They are 15x10 8lug with about 3.5 or 3.75" BS

    Those are cool... thanks BorregoK5... /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Andy I really don't want to do 8" wide rims... the tires I have are 14.5" wide. That's too big of a difference for me. I had 16.50" tires on the 10" rims I have now and I would lose beads when I would air down low enough. I have gone to way less PSI with my 12.50" tires now and never lost a bead. So that's why I like want the 10" rims...

    I was thinking about that actually to balance them. I'm not sure what to do. I don't want to try equal (that powder stuff). Jeeper friend got moisture/guk in his tire and it clumpped up. He showed it to me and it looked like that scoopable cat litter! I don't know if this is a common issue, but I'd rather not try it to find it happen to me.

    Steph...get the white spoke 15x10's and paint em black. Mine were white spoke 15x10 8 lug wheels with 3.5" of back space, and I just hit em with some black and called it good.

    I found my set when I wasn't looking...a guy I know with a Jeep had em sitting behind his garage and gave em to me./forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    that's odd, i thought you could usually air down more on say a 12.50 on a 8 inch rim than a 10 inch rim, of course when you changed tires the sidewall flex might have had something to do with it, the wheels you want are out there, and at the places you have looked, it is just you are getting some salesman that just wants to sell non-oddball stuff and is too ignorant to make the extra effort to find what you are looking for /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I got my US Wheel 15x10 8 luggers at Summit. They have 4 1/8" backspacing though. I'm going to try and get the same wheel in 8" width with a 3" backspacing for Donna's truck. Not sure if US Wheel has them available or if they will have to be modified.

    Steph,

    You can get any style wheel you want from US Wheel, they are located in Hunnington Beach, CA. They don't sell direclty to the public, but you can order them through Desert Rat, We have a member SMP, that work for Desert Rat. Get in touch with him off the board, and he can check with US Wheel, they come unpainted and the last set I bought I picked up directly from them, when I was in CA. I paid Desert Rat and went by US Wheel when I was in town on business.

    I got reverse backset custom sized and watched them make them at their factory.

    Leave Shane (SMP) a message and tell him what you are after. He shoud be able to get anyting you want. BTW, I only paid $30.00 each per wheel, but you will have to paint them yourself. Not a problem for me, I wanted Camoed wheels to match my blazer.

    Let me know how it turns out.

    Rob

    Just curious since I happen to live in the same town as the company you listed, though I've never heard of them, but I'll have to check them out.
