Finally got my Buckshots on

I'll better pics in the morning. They are Gateway Buckshots Q78-15. Rims i think are a Cragar d window 15x8. Gateway lists them as a 35.5" OD. They fit fine with no rubbing even at full locks. I know my baby is bit salty. Gotta luv those red and blue pinstripes lol:

As i posted in ur other thread...

Those are the exact same ones that i used.
If ur talking about the stock center bolt... just whack it off with a hack saw.
remember they center bolts that come with the kit are purposely made way to long. this is so you can line up the leaves then comepress them with the bolt alone. I was dumb and cut the bolt to fit first then had to fight around with c-clamps to compress the springs. Needless to say the other side went much smoother. lol

Gateway says there 35.5x10.80-15. I wish i could wash it. But its only 5 F degrees...an that F don't stand for Fahrenheit. The water would freeze before it hits the truck.

Thanks. Oh i luv the STT's. Except they are for road use and for when i need their climbing ability( or for when i just don't feel like changing my tires.) The one they have much better ability over the buckshots is thiir gripping ability. Esspecially their lateral support which is pretty critical if ya don't wanna roll er over. The buckshots tends to just rip a hole in the terrain. They slide all over on the hills.

No these are much different than the Maxxis buckshots. These are Gateway Buckshots. They were once the best bias ply mudder out there. They have since gone exstinct though. They still are pretty popular for their Gumbo mudder. I have only found one place where you can buy them brand new.
