Rim Size?

I have purchased my lift(6 inch), and a buddy gave me some used swampers(35x15x15). So now I need wheels.

Will some 15x10s work or do I need 15x12s?

I priced around today and I could get a set of 15x10 chrome mods for $311.72 with caps and lugs

Is this a good price?

I plan on go bigger later on and dont want to buy rims again. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Rim Size?

I've heard of people using 10" wide wheels ok on 15" wide tires. I plan on using 15x10 wheels for 39.5x15s here.

15x10's. Get plain steel and spend your money elsewhere. The chrome just rusts, and after a while looks pretty ****ty. You can't just sand it down and respray paint it like plain steel rims.

There's at least one guy on www.ColoradoK5.com that has 42" Swampers on 15x8's.[img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

We don't have anyone here that hates rust do we??? [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Also by running a narrower rime you will be less likely to blow a bead at low PSI and you probably won't have as much tire fitment problems with the narrower rim

Rust is an evil, dirty, baaaad baaaad thing.

Michigan's DMV is the spawn of Satan for using road salt to eat up all the old cars I want(ed).[img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

<font color="green"> Another vote for 15x10 here. I ran 38x15s on 15x10s, will be going to 15x9s when I get the beadlocks. </font color>

Re: Rim Size?

Go with the 15x10s. I've watched to see what the guys here run and all of them run 10" wide wheels on their 15" or wider tires over 38". If I were running a tire shorter than that I'd go with the 12" wide wheel.

Chevy 6 on 5.5 wheels are pretty common in 15x10s. Call up some local places and see if they have some used ones. New ones are around $45 and used ones aren't worth more than $20 each unless they're beautiful.
