Default Truck wheels?

Are there any cheap internet sights for truck wheels? I'm thinking Eagle or Center Line's

I bought a set of Eco 16" 8 lug wheels for my truck. These look like the Eagle 58's. As I recall, I paid around $350 for a set of 4-but they are not annodized. If you want, I'll dig around and get you the contact.

dyno... I have been looking for wheels lately too. I have a 3/4 chevy 4 wheel drive, so that means the front wheels are sticking out alittle bit more then the rear. So to kinda fix this. I am using two different offsets. I am going with the weld "stonecrusher" 16" wheels with 4.625" and 3.625" backspacing. This will bring my front tires in 1" and push my back tires out 1", kinda straighten's it out. The welds are kinda expensive but they are a good wheel. Gonna run some nitto terra grappler 285/75's for tires. For example, my uncle runs the 3.625" backspacing on the rear of his sub with 265's and they look perfect, don't stick out at all..

Travis there are some Eagle 058's on ebay with a 3.25" back spacing .....they will stick out then right? They are supposed to fit a 2500...I'm staying with stock tires to keep my gear ratio. and the price is right $329....

Dyno.. I would think they wouldn't stick out on the back.. they probably will stick out on the front though. Cause the front tires side to side is 4 inches wider then the rear. Meaning the front tires stick out 2" more then the back with stock tires & rims, at least mine is that way.

Is your truck new style (99' and up) or older body style ( pre 98') Cause I have a 2000 3/4 and its old body style. The 99' newer styles and up don't seem to have a problem with the front tires sticking out more then the backs..


confusing ya yet
