I got my ltb 34x10.50 swampers in my garage waiting to be put on. The problem is that I currently have 35x12.50 on 10" rims and need to get 8" rims. I don't want the standard backspacing of 3.75" because it will narrow the stance too much. I have been researching this board and the suzuki board on 2" bs rims and have had some luck. Here are my option:
1. Bart wheels- $40.00 each plus shipping (read some bad things on board about them)
2. stockton wheels- no prices online
3. US Wheel- $54.00 per wheel plus shipping
4. junkyard wheels and 1.5" spacers (spacers are expensive)
5. local shops don't do custom wheels
Anybody out there have anything similar to what I want to do on their rig now? Can you post some pics? I want to get these tires on and see how they do. :Expletive

Have you tried elusive or jeepgod? Both are fellow USMC [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] and in NC. I know they have a ton of extra CJ stuff. They might even have the wheels you are looking for. Lets not forget moabdog or even infantryyj. Never hurts to try. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
