Wow, Really Summit Racing?

I got my American Racing Baja Wheels about 2 years ago. Got them up at Summit. I ordered 15x8" wheels and some how never looked to see if they gave me the right stuff. So today I go to my local guy who I got my tires from and where I do my tire rotations, to replace a bent rim that I had. I went up to Summit to get another Baja wheel yesterday. I got a 15x8" wheel cause I thought thats what I had the whole time. I go back to the shop to get it swapped on and the guy there tells me that I have 15x7" wheels not 15x8". I was pretty frustrated, now I have to go back to summit racing to even see if they carry 15x7" bajas since there not on there website, and to see if they'll give me my money back for the 15x8" cause the box is sorta dirty now, and I don't have a piece of the packaging inside. Its probably more my fault that I didn't check in the first place but I guess I just trusted them.

Sooo, now that I have 33x12.50 tires 15x7" wheels can't be good for tread wear correct? I really can't afford to get new baja wheels anytime soon. But I was thinking maybe these would look alright:

They're US wheel 94 series, they're $64 a wheel for 15x8"

any input would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Clay

yes, those would look good, but they are steel and you live in ohio.... Horrible combo. If I were you the first thing I would do is stop taking anybody's word. I would take the time to see if you can find a stamping somewhere on the wheel that states the size, or unmount a tire and measure the width yourself with a tape... Then do the same for the new rim you ordered...

When I bought these wheels the only thing I new when I bought them were the bolt pattern and the size I wanted. Back then I only new 1% of what I know now. I definitely know now to always double check. I'm just going to get another 15x7" wheel and maybe next fall I might be able to get a new set then.

I think they would look good, but it will totally change the look of the truck so I got to think about it.
