16x8 wheels

I've got a 95 RRC, lifted currently running Wolfe 16x6.5 wheels with 255x85r16's. i'm looking to go 35's and the 6.5 wheel is just a little narrow. I love the wolfe wheel. its strong and had a great bead. does anyone know of a good 16x8 steel wheel that i can run on my RRC that isn't junk?

thanks again

Nick

A lot of people like Zu alloys. They come in 16x8 if you can stomach how they look on your truck.

I think some guys use the Disco spare steel wheels with 35s, but they are 16x7.

Know any good land rover shops in the sacramento area or roseville area? I'm moving to Nevada City in a month.

I have a set of steels that are wider, 8" and offset for big tires, look like Wolfs- just can't recall the name, old age, sorry. Very good wheel and several of us ran them when wheeling hard with big rubber...

Briggs Automotive in Auburn. It's a one man shop and I hear he does good work.

Haha. I asked him and he already offered garage space! I just see it going like this with my wife, "We just moved here and you want to go play trucks?" Me, "Yes." Her staring intently, "Really?" Me, "No, not really."

Stockton wheel company in Stockton, CA could make pretty much anything you'd want.

Balance fine- pending tire brand, and almost 1/4" thick- similar to the Wolfs.
