Getting 15-42-15 Super Swamper TSL's. Recomended fror 10-12 inch wide rim. Which width looks the best? Also, does any company make an alluminum rim the width you recomend in 15 inch diameter w/8 lug pattern? Also, what is a good company for a chromed steel wheel with the correct width and 15 inches in diameter with beadlocks and 8 lug?

Re: wheels

I think 15x12 rims would look killer if you've got the clearance. As far as alumminum rims in a size 15x12 with 8 lugs, I've yet to actually see one, though they mey be out there. Try Bart steel wheels. I believe they make an 8 lug rim that's 15" in diameter.

Re: wheels

I'd go with 10" rims. I have 15" wide 38" Swamper Radials on 10" wide rims and they look perfect. Try http://www.stocktonwheel.com/4x4wheels.htm for the wheels, they can make them in 15" and they're supposed to be real heavy duty. Here's a pic of one of the wheels they offer -

This one's pretty cool to for mudders -

Re: wheels

How are Bart wheels for rusting?? I've wanted to put 38's on my '87, but was curious about them rusting out, as I live in the midwest (salt country)

Re: wheels

Don't know how Barts stand up to the elements. I'd get 'em powdercoated.
