Need some input

So I've been throwing around the idea of some new wheels...

Found these without having to buy new (Gonna talk the guy/girl down)

New Chrome Rims-GREAT DEAL!

And here's the info I found on the wheels

http://www.ultrawheel.com/pdf/rims/260.pdf

Ultra 260 T-6 6-spoke
16x8
5on4.5
4-7/8 BS
+10mm offset


Now question... They were on a SporTrac so I know they'll work... But will they work with MY truck and the RCD? I need some input so I can throw down an offer guys! Thanks!

Yeah... I've been waiting for about 4 months now for wheels to pop up locally (up to 200mi away) on CL and no dice. These were the only ones i've seen in my wheel size and lug pattern. I might wait it out more since Zach says they won't work! lol

come on guys seriously this is kind of ridiculous. only 1 response was of any information as if they will work or not.

Dont post so much BS in this thread and ruin it like all the others. If you know anything about this matter say so and say yes they will fit and or no they will not fit and why.

No one gives two ****s on your opinion of what they look like.

As i told you on aim trepaul i dont think they will work with the rcd.

I dont know that I meant they WONT work, more like im not sure(it would be really close), but I dont think they would look good width wise on the truck, it would just narrow it out even more. but maybe you wont notice it.

Its so freakin hard to choose a proper looking non-black/teflon wheel for a truck honestly... Only a few trucks can rock the chrome well enough to get them home, and if you go too big on the wheel, it looks gawdy as all heck.. too small, and well.. I dont think they make too small of chrome rims, but its still chrome :-D


Maybe find some of those teflon wheels instead maybe?




Ran a quick search but dont have much time - need to get to work..



On a side note,did a search for 5 x 4.5 teflon - and found a pretty awesome truck..

Notice how all my ideas of what I want on my truck or my future truck, end up on his? All because I mention my plans. Damnit.


Trevor....they'll suck in and look about stock-like compared to your current 16x8 w/ 4" backspace. Basically....your tires will be sucked into the fenderwell 7/8" than you are right now.
