    I want some black wheels for my truck. Rim size 16x8 with around 4 to 4.5 inches of backspace. I dont want anything fancy, just a good old black steel wheel will do. I definitely don't wanna use any spacers either.
    I got some wheels on ebay that didnt work on my truck because the back of the wheel actually touches the brake calipers. not so good for driving i hear, lol.

    any suggestions? or does anyone have wheels like what i'm talkin about and will be willing to share their secret on where they bought em?

    THIS IS MY TRUCK...

    I think those are base 4x4 wheels. You could pick up a set and have them painted or paint them yourself.

    Check out tirepackage.com. They have some pretty good discounts and if there will be any fit issues with your truck they'll give you a call. Also a huge inventory. You'll find something you like. Got my wheels from tirepackage. They go on this weekend.

    I know they would fit fine on a 6 lug, but I'm really not sure about the 5 lug, sorry.

    Those are the wheels I wanted to get. Unfortunately, I had a spending cap on the tire/wheel combo and their shipping was more than what I could manage. You're right about their customer service. And, your truck looks great.
