Ok last night around 1am I found a set of Eagle alloy 15x10 wheels on CL, i emailed the guy and went and picked them up today with Justin(toreador4x4) little over an hour away...

got them for $125, they where on a Bronco II with 36x14.5x15 the guy bought them with the tires and there for his chevy so no use for the wheels.

They need a lite lite polishing there in really good shape no pits or anything..

now in the past 2 days also did all this crap lol...

  • greased ball joints/ tie rods
  • oil change
  • pulled caliper slides out and greased
  • rotated tires
  • checked rear brakes
  • u-joint grease
  • topped off front diff
  • Trans filter change
  • fuel filter




some people know that I have been having tons of issues with my trans well after the trans filter change she is shifted perfectly no more slide into gear, also trans lock up hesitation is gone completely, no more reverse shutter, and no more feeling like "neutral drop" when you stab the gas and it down shifts.



have to say big thanks to Justin for ridding along today and lending a hand with the trans was nice to have a 2nd set of hands around that also know what there doing thats for sure





Also today Justin cut up my old stock style rear hitch and I welded it shorter for him.. prob next week after he paints it there will be installed pics of that..


productive 2 days for sure

I just don't like how 15x10's stretch out 33x12.50's. Good find tho! 35x12.50's will fit better

if you park my truck next to Justin's we both have the exact same tire.. the DCMC sit much better on 15x10 alot flatter on the top not so ballooned.

plus i will have a wider stance which i want i do not like how my 15x8 are tucked under the fender flare at all..

GREAT find, Zach!!

now... about those 15x8 wheels, that are less than 1/8th as nice as this set you just got (your own words) for $125... you can just send them on down here to me for $15.63 + shipping!

I'd happily sport those "crappy" 15x8 wheels... better than the chrome-trimmed 15x7 steelies I have, now....

Negative...I like those wheels and he should send them to me for my Diesel Ranger. Or I could put them on my FX4 and protect the Alcoa's from harm.
