Any idea if the rims pictured on this D90 are the same rims I have on my Series IIa? (I have D90 axles/coil suspension)?

I know this is a super crappy edit as I don't have photoshop...but you get the idea that I would like to achieve. I currently have BF A/T 33 x 9.5 x 15.

The size of the tires in the frst pic are 255-85R16 BFG MT on Nato Steel wheels. That's Rugbier's old truck.

FYI 255 85 R16 is nearly identical in size to what you have. The main difference is Gustavo's truck had wider offset wheels.

I thought that size was difficult to come by in KM2's (assuming he has KM2's).

Hmmm...so next question...I understand they are practically same size..but I'm planning on going with some M/Ts and I thought that rig looked really good. So would those tires fit on my rims? Not sure what type of rims I have....mine look identical to the black one pictured on the D90 but am I understanding that they are in fact different? His are 16's and mine are 15's?

Any thoughts on a good place to get a cheap set of those Nato steelies?

Also, do you guys think if I am looking to go just a little bit wider on the tire, should I try to find some 33x10.5 R15 M/T ?

Almost identical...but are they a bit wider or more slim? I'm looking to do just a bit wider of a tread in the M/Ts. Trying to figure out if I need to upgrade to 16" rims in order to do that.

I do have the smaller wheels. So are you talking about Tires for sale or 16" rims when you say you "have the ones on the black 90 above for sale" ....cause the rims on that black 90 are different than Nato steel wheels so I'm guessing you are referring to the tires for sale?

Nick, I've got the Steel Wheels for sale. They are NAS 110 / Defender 130 wheels. They are 6.5 x 16. They just need to be painted or powder coated. Here's my for sale thread with pics:

That's an Equipe bumper and you can longer get it as the company doesn't exist anymore. The spinoff COR4 might still make it, give Lucky8 a call. There are some similar designs fromTerrafirma and Scorpion.
