what size are your tires?

Also where do I get this style?

You would probably be ok with the 6.5"

I am planning to put 255/85/16 on my NAS 110 Steelies. I think the 285s is where you would find you are just too wide.

Anyone else have an opinion on this?

I need help finding the steel wheel that I have. I need a spare that I can get into rotation. The back spacing is about 4 1/2. I can find the wolf which look similar, but they have twelve holes in them. anyone know where I can get this wheel from? thanks

I don't see them on the site, but I am pretty sure I talked to someone here about a year ago that said they carry them.

Here is a pic. You just have to picture them without the cheesy fake beadlocks. They are optional.

What about Mangels wheels ?
They are the makers of modulars and spokes steel wheels.
I know they are made in Brazil, but I don't know if you can
get them in the US.

Cool,

Just as an FYI to the rest of you guys thinking about steelies. I have run some of the hardest trails out there for 3 years on these wheels with an average psi of about 5-8. In that time I have only lost 1 bead. Not sure if it is the tire/wheel combo but I recommend these wheels strongly.

I know you already bought a rim from Trek Outfitters but just fyi they also look a lot like Gulf Coast Rover's rims...
