Anybody have a set of 8 lug 15" rims?
I saw some listed on Denvers Craigslist the other day, a post with a bunch of rockcrawler parts or something like that.
Hmmmm, why would you need that...
Are you asking about some for sale? Or guys that are running them? John and Chris run 15" 8-lug wheels. New they are about $50/wheel from 4WP.
You could get them as reverse wheels and have poor man's beadlocks.
Poorman's beadlocks aka reverse wheels are hard on balljoints so keep that in mind when you are buying wheels. It is one of those tradeoffs you get in life. I also run 15x8" 8 luggers but don't have any to sell.
You can order them threw Discount Tire. Also FYI Chris (FortCollinsRam) is now working at Fort Collins 4x4 & might be able to source parts for you guys. Chris told me they are revamping & making lots of changes to make it a better shop for everyone with better service & people.
I have a feeling the 12 bolt will puke it's guts sometime soon with the 35's on it. That 14 is just sitting in the garage waiting to be installed. So I either need 8 lug rims or 8 to 6 lug adapters. The adapters are 139.00 each - the rim route would be cheaper.
I hate giving up my blingin directionals though. I have a reputation to protect.
1. Spacers 139.00 each or used pair
2. Rims 50 each or used set
3. Heaven forbid someone has a pair of 8 lug AR-26 American Racing directionals.
Post a pic . I have some 16" 8 lug directional wheels but I dont know what brand or model they are. Ran em on my Suburban for a while.
The only catch is that they'd need to be 15"
I thought you might say that but bigger wheels is a better option than grinding brake calipers .
