8 lug 15" wheels... who makes them
 
I know i can get some from Summit and 4 wheel parts, but are there any other companies that make them? Perhaps some companies that support pirate?

Thanks
Dima

What backspacing are you looking for?

I have some I was getting ready to weld some beadlocks on but I think I am just going to order some aluminum beadlocks instead.

Mine are 2.5" backspacing and they clear D60 brakes.

You can always support a company that supports landuse.

Wel my options just opened up a lot. I did not even think about beadlocks due to cost, but then you guys pointed out Eaton and Allied.

So now my question is which wheels are better? The eaton or the Allied?

Twentyfoot... Sent you a pm

Thanks

Stazworks!
Double beadlock, lots of backspacing options, and damn tough. You might wait a while depending on his workload, but they're the best steel wheels IMO.

Yea, those are cool, but they are $300 per wheel... I was hoping to go much cheaper than that.

I bought steel wagon wheels from Summit for $50 each, rock rings from DIY4x4, and Stauns. My cost per wheel was $230 or so. I wish now I'd gone ahead and spent the extra money.

You know, cry once, smile long time.

I have been running 15" allied 32 bolts for 5 years now on my heavy pig. I have bent a few rings here and there but I have been really happy with how they have held up
Once I hit a ledge just right and bent the ring and sheered off 3 bolts, I quickly grabbed a rock and beat it back to semi straight and I was good to go.

I'd second MRW, good price/headache ratio, and good quality. I've had them on my blazer for 3 years now and love them!
