Default black simulated bead lock wheels

I am having a hard time finding these wheels in a 16x8 w a 3.75 back spacing. Everything i find had 4.25 or 4.50 Anyone have any ideas

Ended up buying camodown's used steel wheels. Think i'll run a 1/4 spacer too

Unless the spacers have a lip for the rim to "lock" on to like it does on the hub, don't do spacers. People have all kinds of problems with getting the wheels centered properly and breaking lugs.

Well UPS FINALLY delivered the other 2 wheels(funny how two pkgs can leave TX and in one week one arrives and the other arrives in 2 weeks)

Anyway. Got em on today. What do yo all think. I am pleased. i just hope when the flairs go back on they will be wide enough

they look good, While you are waiting on centercaps you can paint the middle black and it doesn't stick out as bad. That is how I ran them
