set of (5) 33x12.5-15 BFG M/T's on steel wheels

I am looking to sell a set of 5 BFG M/T's 33X12.5-15 mounted on steel wheels.
I don't know the brand of wheel, these have been professionally painted a metallic silver.
I don't know the backspacing, but they push the tires about an inch wider than the fender arches.
They have equal balance type internal balance. These have been siped very nicely.
Tread is very good. Paint finish is perfect. I have put very few miles on these. I will gladly take pics for those interested.
Most of the pics I have now are of them on the defender. Tires are Located in Wilmington, NC.
Prefer pickup, but I will gladly take them for UPS/fedex shipping on your nickel. I think they cost me $45 to have them shipped to me.
$950 plus any shipping charges

Bryan, I'd like to see pictures - on your truck is fine. How many miles on them?

I don't know exact miles.

I bought them around march/april this year. They were from another d90 member, he had recently acquired the truck and wanted alloys back on. They hardly had any miles from what I can tell.
I have driven them around town as a second car since about July (had the truck painted, etc)
I did drive them to MAR. Also my odometer shakes like crazy so I hate to rely on that.

These tires wear so well, that I would hate to guess.
I will get some pics with a coin in the tread tonight...
shoot me your email for photos

Bryan, I told you the backspacing looked off for my needs, but never asked what it actually was. Can you measure it for us? Every time I look at buying rims I get this uneasy feeling that I won't like them.

Pretty much all I know is the "stock" backspacing is around 4 3/8. What's yours?

thanks
charles

Ok,
I need a lesson in backspacing again.
I put a board over the outer edge of the rim and measured the distance to the front of the lug nut hole. 4 3/4 inches

If I flip them over and measure from the rim to the flat area around the bolt holes it is just shy of 4"

Hi Bryan

I'm no expert but afaik, the backspacing is the measurement you took from the inside of the rim to the surface the rim pressess against the hub at. On the stock alloys this is 5.5".

Your two measurements should have added up to the rim width, but 8 3/4" sounds odd to me. On the stock alloys I have 3.5" on the measurement from the inner lug face to the outer rim, and this jives with the width which is 8".

So if your rims were the same width as the alloys (8") they would push the tire out 1.5" to 1 1/4" further than the stock ones depending on the measurement you follow.

And thats the deal breaker for me, as I don't want the tires sticking out that far. On my stock alloys when I stuff the tires, they just barely clear the eyebrows and fenders, and I need to maintain or improve this with my new rims/tires, or I'd buy yours. Now if your tires were half the price I might take a chance and try them

Man I don't know anymore. Someone put me out of my misery.

First, my math doesn't add up above The above implies a 2.5" outside the wheel mounting surface on the alloys with a 5.5" backspacing. I just measured them and I am pretty sure it's 3" on the outside.

Then, the rims say 7" whereas they measure to about 8" for me. I assume 7" is an inner measurement, just like the radius must be as they measure 17" on the outside and not 16" either.

So I'm not sure if anything matters when comparinf rims except the distance from the inner side of the lug hole to the outer edge of the rim, which is about 3" on my alloys.

I don't know how thick the steel rims are, but at 1/8" I think yours would stick out 1 7/8" more than stock. Agree?

p.s Anyone see the 110 in the Taco Bell commercial on the pre-game show?

FYI, when I measured I went from rim to the flat spot around the lug nuts.
So, the thickness of the steel is somewhere in the middle of the two measurements.

Do you want me to send you photos with a ruler in place?
