    Looking for just about anything besides the stock steelies. Prefer tires already mounted but would consider just wheels. I'm Coastal SC.

    Please let me know what you have!

    Thanks, Chip

    Cragar makes some inexpensive rims. My soft 8's were like $45 apiece so you might as well buy new.

    What tires are you running on the 15x7 soft 8s...made by Crager, correct? And on a stock suspension?

    Yep Cragar Soft 8's in 15x7 w/ 4"BS. I ended up getting Goodyear Duratracs in 235/75 after hearing a few people on hear mention them. Center tread like an all-terrain for low road noise + big shoulder blocks that clean out in mud = the perfect tire for me:D. As far as suspension goes they're just Daystar 1.5" spacers. I don't know if you have a 1st or 2nd gen but i wouldn't recommend using the spacers if you have a 1st gen. They don't level the truck completely and they really limit how much travel you have. If I hit a speed bump going 20+ I bottom out. If I had it to do over again I would have run Fabtech or Doetsch Tech spindles. If you have a 2nd gen I know Readylift makes a 2.5" kit for them. I don't know anything about them but if you PM neslerrah I'm sure he will give you his opinion.

    Oh yeah and one more thing. If you buy new rims when you buy tires go ahead and get 30x9.5's. You might even be able to run 31x10.5s on a 2nd gen but don't quote me on that (might be another question for neslerrah). The only reason I bought the 235s was because I had them on stock rims for a few months and was worried about frame rub.
