Cheap wheels w/ a small BS!

No not <font color=red>Bull $hit</font color=red>, <font color=red>back spacing</font color=red>. I'm not looking for anything special here. 15 X 8 inch with enough bs to run the 33 12.50 hi-tech retread's on stock zuk axles. Really the more bs the better as far as I'm concerned, I would like to get as much width out of this as possible.

I am thinking about rockcrawlers from http://www.4wheelparts.com/product1....s=TECH&cat=WHE. But I don't know which ones. Any suggestions?
The key idea is cheap with maximum width achievable.

Anyone close to Dayton, OH have some they want to get rid of?
Any help or suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks,
F_T

2" bs and 1 1/4" wheel spacers should keep them off pretty well.

Hey if you realy do just need some cheap rims ask around youll find some. I have 15x8 chromeys from a ford or something for 20 bucks the whole set.

Re: Cheap wheels w/ a lot of BS!

If I read this right what you want is less bs. The more bs the farther under the ride and more chance of spring contact. Look for anything 2" or even less. This will give you a wider track. Or you can also go with the spacers. I think there are several wheel companys offering wheels (steel) cheaper than the cost of spacers.

I was wondering about that. I think a lot of people get confused here because I have seen some rims that suposedly had a 3 inch back spacing and they stuck out really far. So less bs = wider stance, right?

Re: Cheap wheels w/ a lot of BS!

Cool. Hell yes this is just what I was looking for!
OK, can anyone beat 41.30 a wheel? If not these win.

Re: Cheap wheels w/ a lot of BS!

If you are looking at the 4wheelparts wheels, don't bother. The only backspacing they offer is 3 3/4". That's insane, any tire wider than 9" would rub.


Following Christ is a lot like wheelin', just follow the road (trail) less traveled!

Re: Cheap wheels w/ a lot of BS!

I have to thank you,Smitche.I was planning on ordering a set of 33" BFG M/T on 15x10 Rockcrawlers knowing that backspacing more than 2 3/4 would be a problem. Just figured that vendors ordered according to vehicle and not according to what is the standard.
