Got Some New Wheels, In need of direction



Got these awhile ago on kind of an impulse buy, bought all 4 for cheap off CL. I've been doing a little research, and I can't find the wheels in the same pattern, size, offset and everything online. The label on the box 5X114.3, which is correct, offset is 20mm, and size is 15"X8". not sure if its just a screwed up label or if I got screwed? Maybe I haven't been looking hard enough on the net, but I figure I'd turn to you guys cause you know more about these trucks than some local shops.

Any insight is greatly appreciated

Probably just an older wheel in a size not made anymore, or the label is wrong.

I say bolt one up, if it fits, it fits.

How do you think you got screwed? Bolt pattern is correct to fit, 15x8 is a good size, and not sure about the offset may need a spacer?

They are the KMC enduros, the only reason I mention it is because you got them off craigslist and may or may not know what they are called. At one point, I recall someone mentioning that they were discontinued. That may be the reason you cant find them online.

They're only made in small batches.

They're always on back order.

15's don't normally work on 2nd gens... not enough clearance for the calipers.

But, he could probably get a pretty penny for them since the wheels are becoming hard to find and look bad-ass.

15's have a better chance of fitting on the 5 lugs.

If thats the case then why do the stock 5 lugs read 215/70/15?

Here's what you do op. Jack your truck up, remove front wheel, take new impulse buy and put on truck, see if it bolts up, if it fits check clearances, and proceed from there. I'm running 16x8's with 4.5 BS and still had to grind the caliper mount down on my 5 lug.

re

Thank you all for the input, I know I havent posted on this thread or even checked TW in a long while cause I've been super busy with work and school and crap. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to even look into this any further, and unfortunately almost ALL modding of any kind has pretty well been halted. I'll keep you guys updated (that is if and when updates ever happen lol)
