Love me some craigslist.

Well this morning I got up at 6:48am instead of 7:48am. I forgot to set my clock an hour back and though it was almost 8. Well I decided to make the best of it and hop on craigslist. I have been on the look out for some 15" wheels. All of the ones I have seen have been too much for me. Well this morning I found a set. They came off a Jeep wrangler, are 15x8's and cheap(really cheap). I have no clue on the backspacing. A lil dirty but they just need a good spray down. Now I just need to find someone to buy my current setup so I can get a set of tires and throw these on the truck. If anyone knows what brand or model they are let me know. There was some info on the part of the wheel that the tire covers up. That is how I found out they are 15x8's.

I actually think I found them. On the part that has the info it has Intero. Well I found out that Intero Wheel was bought out by the people that make Cragars. Got onto the cragar website and found these. I am pretty sure they are the same. Says they are 3.75 BS. Just what I was looking for.

I wasn't lying. They have a lil surface rust but nothing major. When I wash the truck tomorrow I am going to take them with me and clean them up. I'll put up some pics of them after I get done cleaning.

Interesting. Only if they would have had the black centers.

I don't think they look too bad. I am going to wash the truck here in a few and take the wheels along to clean em up. Now I just need to find me a cheap set of tires for them and find someone to buy my setup so I can get a set of 32's or 33's. Eventually I'll replace the wheels with something better, but for now they will have too do.

Well I didn't plan on buying any wheels. But when I was poking around on Craigslist and found these I couldn't pass them up. I figure if I decide not to put them on the truck, it should be no problem getting rid of them for at least what I payed for them.

I've got rims that look the exactly the same, and so does my cousin. They are badged "Unique", don't know it thats the brand or model. Got them new for cheap at Discount tire. You can get them with different backspacing and such. Yours look to be missing the center caps that are stamped "Unique".
