need opinions

well both these options are temporary.

and it relates to my wheels. i know which wheels i will be buying for this truck. but they are gonna cost me about 500 bucks. so in the mean time, i was going to just put some wheel spacers on the stock wheels i have.

but i just found someone selling black 16x8 cragars for 100 bucks. which would be cheaper then wheel spacers. and my friend could mount the tires on those wheels for free for me.

so should I do that? like i said, they're only temporary till i get the nice wheels i have my eyes on

well the steelies are 100 right? how much are the wheel spacers? either way your going to have to take the wheels and tires off the truck and if you can get your tires mounted for free then i would say go with the steelies

yeah. spacers will be at least 120-140ish for all 4. and idk what shipping would be yet. but these steelies are local.

and those that say why spend more money on the truck if im selling it soon

i just did a little # crunch on what i've spent on it in the last 6 months. and uh you dont wanna know.

thats why i dont feel as bad spending money on it now. because i've already spent quite a bit. whatever lol.

hmm having on second thought these wheels almost look to be 5x5.5 not 4.5. he said jeep wheels. but i know the grand cherokees had a larger lug pattern then the rest of the jeeps. and some other jeeps did as well.

looking at the pic, the centercaps look way bigger then they did on my old cragars
Set of FOUR 5 lug black wheels
