I think Roach2004 runs those. And you can go with 15x8 and around 4 BS would be perfect.

personally, id get the 15x8 with a 4inch backspacing...

it will give you a slightly wider stance

there are lots out there, find something you like.

if you want simulated beadlocks, eagle alloy makes some nice wheels.


steel wheels are very heavy compared to alum or alloy, its very noticeable, especially if you plan to run a larger tire.

well it depends on if you offroad. Steel wheels are nice because with a hammer you can fix the bead with a few hits. Aluminum you can't usually do it without it cracking. But if its on the street then aluminum is perfect.

I run them but not the Cragers. Many different company's make the EXACT SAME rims. I would get the 15X8's cause mine are heavy as hell and would like alittle less weight on my rim/tire combo.
