Now 2inch back spacing will stick the tires out more that say 3 inch back spacing right. I'm going to go down after work, they said they have one in stock, now how can i tell that is 2 inch back spacing.
Danger I dont really want to run ten inch rims. I am running ten inch on my truck with 33x12.5 bfg muds and in the sand when i air down i can blow a bead real easy. Acker what the width of the ford rims. I am going to call sown to a junk yard tom. and see what they got. Is ford the only other type of car that will have rims that fit a zook.
be absoluley sure they are really 2 inch bs. i went to discount tire and they thought i was crazy. i finally found i guy that could help me and he said they couldn't get anything. 4 wheel parts wholesalers can get the rock crawler with 2 inch bs for 50 bucks a wheel.
yota i'm runnin bronco wheels..... theyre 8" wheels with about 3.5 back space..... with the 225/ 15s i run on my stocker i dont get any rub......... these wheels work ok stock ... i done know how they will be with larger tires
It's a 5 on 5.5" pattern for the lugs. Found on Fords, older jeeps (CJ's) and Scouts. IMHO, 8" rims work best. I'm running 13.5" tires on 8" rims, air down to 6 psi on the trail / 20 psi on the street ... no problems.
yota its not that hard to get a set of spacers made if you need them.... go to the local community college and get the machinist class to make them......... i did..... of course my brother is the instructor there
Another problem with some of these "bargain wheels"... Pep Boys for instance, they have a sticker right on them that limits you to a specific tire size. I think it was 31" but I do remember it was too small and I would have no warranty.
I went to the junk yards and they had some white mags, but it looked like 4 inch backspacing for $100 dollars. Now i can go to discount tire and get the same rims new for $23 a piece. The junk yards around here are just a rip off. I think im just going to look at 4wheelparts or some were else. The other thing i was thinking about was turning the stock rims backwards. only problem is the valve stems and im not sure if it will clear my front brakes. I'm just trying to think of the cheapest way, That allows me to spend more money on tires. I dont really care if the rims look like crap just that they work.
