Try this site, They have 15X8 and 16X8 and you can choose your offset. I just ordered the 16 inch with the 4.5 backspacing

Thanx for the help. I guess I am going the spacer route(new wheels will run about the same w/ shipping), if I can find hub centrics,(maybee scorpion). The diso steelies have more backspace than my series ones but not enough for the vented rotors on the d90.

I know a bunch of people running the 15 inch on the disco but don't know any running 15 inch on the d-90. I am sure that some are but just don't know any. Do you think it may be the 15 inch as compared to the 16 inch type thing? Just a thought.

Most of the 35" tire guys I think are running 15" wheels

No I Think it has to do with vented rotors on the 90 being wider than the dico rotors(non vented) Pretty Much like the series wheel look so am going w/ spacers, if I want to run my alloys i will just take the spacers off...no big deal i guess. 15 inch rims give you more tire choices cheaper)
