Ok I am in the process of buying new rims. Do I get 5-5.5 or 8-6.5 lug pattern? What's stronger? The rims are going to be Walker Evans beadlocks 17x8.5 if this matters. I am also going to running 39.5 to 42's Right now my rear 60 is 5-5.5 and I don't have the front 60 built yet. What do I do? I have been told that with that big of a tire on the 5-5.5 I will rip off lug studs? Is this true?

Stength is a bit better with the 8 lug, but the 5 lug is plenty strong enough for most rigs.

If you don't mind redoing the rear to 8 lug, go that way. If redoing the brakes and such is too much of a hastle, then go 5 lug. Your call...
