They are cheep on ebaym what backspacing do I need, and what size wheels do you guys think I should run? I hate to give up my 16's bec I have a new set of BFG's on them.

265's. I don't know what they will wear like at this point.

I think 40K for any tire on our heavy azz trucks is pretty good. and with the way I drive..... :shrug: :D

Doesn't a load range E & lack of burnouts help out some for tire wear?

I know my Cooper S/Ts still look brand new & I've had em since July & put almost 15K or so on em. Never done any burnouts with the old IDI & I keep em rotated & balenced so I think they will last awhile.

I was asking about a very similar wheel on TDS and got some kind of hubcentric stuff

they showed me a link to some nasty uhaul looking chumpy:lame:

will these fit a 1999 350 4x4 without adapters, cracking under load etc...
seems like there were plenty of flashy rims in old magazines that didn't look like a plain steel american racing rim

I would rather have a hubcentric wheel, as that's what stock is, but I'm not too worried about it.

My buddy has some cheap wheels on his 97 that are not hub centric and we have grossed 43,000+ GCW with his truck, and nerr a problem.

I would just make sure the weight rating of the wheels is such that you won't exceed them.

If you get the proper backspacing, you shouldn't need adapters to run these.

Super duty lug pattern is 8x170, I don't know the backspacing.

thanks Greg ,I hope something thike these will work..
back spacing seems to be different for the 99's vs something like an 05 .

but If I run any centrematics I will stay w stock rims, if not
probably Moto's

I had those in 20x10 with 37" toyo AT tires when my truck was lifted. Looked awesome but the backspacing sucked, i had to drill and tap the steering stops, insert a bolt and make my horrendous turning radius even worse. Now i have Moto metal 954's in 20x10 as well, but it has a -18mm backspacing which makes the track width wider, and i don't have any spring rub on 35"s and a leveling kit.
