16" 8x6.5 Slot Mag Wheels
« on: February 20, 2021, 01:13:41 pm »
Hey guys! I'm looking for a specific set of wheels. 16x7 or 16x8 preferably, 8 lug pattern, slot mags. I'd just love to find a set for my truck instead of buying a set of modern style wheels. Love the classic style.

Iight have to save on em to buy them outright, but I've got quite a few parts to trade on and I'm willing to ship. Let me know if y'all have any.

Thanks!

    If you can bump up to 17", they are still made new by US Mag.  I just ordered a set from Summit Racing this morning, $255 a piece.  Personally, I wouldn't buy a 16" rim now, the tires are being phased out and will soon go the way of the 14" and 15" tires.

    I've considered it, but I try to stick to 16s. I've got three other vehicles on 16s and they all run 285/75r16 tires, keeps a little uniformity amongst the fleet. If I can't find a set it might be worth calling up US Indy and seeing if they'd just take a 16x7 set and drilling them for an 8 lug pattern.

    I just looked on their site, I found the 5 lug version, but didn't see any 8 lug versions...did I mess something?
    I would love some old kidney bean mags for my 8 lug, 12V Cummins 2wd '78 Ramcharger build.

    Pay attention to the description, all the pics show 5 lug versions, but the 8 lug 17x10 is there:

    If you want a pic of the 8 lug wheels, scroll down the Q&A section of the page, a guy from Norway has a pic of them on a DR series 2500.
