Man that thing looks awesome with those on it. The 16.5 were a plus for me because my truck came with 4 brand new 9.50x16.5s already on it. The turbines I just bought are either 8 or 9" wide they aren't the real big ones so it'll be perfect! until i need tires anyway....

Here's another set I found. These are in the Cincinnati area. A little different style but they have been blasted and powder coated!!

Old style 16.5 x 9.75 hurricane wheels

Sorry, I have been gone for a few days. No, they don't just bolt up. You have to enlarge the center hole to clear the rear hubs, and buy bulge lug nuts. I used a router bit to open the holes, and got the lug nuts of ebay for $27 shipped.

Found these....PM sent on the 1st pic set to 73ferd about them

Second pic/set is like the $400 ones noltingc81 found, but he is asking only $160 OBO for all 4.

And here are some other ones....

8 lug Chevy 10-16.5 wheels

Thanks. The tires that came with the truck are in good shape, with a fair amount of tread left. They are 10.5 wide on 9 wide wheels

And i likr the look of those hummer wheels... Too bad they'd need enlarging

The enlarging was actually pretty cheap and easy to do. I used a flush trim router bit and went to town. Something like a $12 fix. Of course, if you don't have a router...

I used to do a lot of scuba diving, and at the end of the dives everyone would be low on air, but I'd still have 1/2 a tank. They said I used air like a woman and ended up calling me Girlielungs.

Or you can breath thru your ears......that's a punch line of a joke, I just can't remember the first half, sorry I had to. JK welcome to the FTE club.

But that's a good way to get a nickname, especially if you do that underwater cave splunkin. Not for me, no way, no how, I could not even think about doing that stuff.

So is "Scuba Steve" your idle, JK again dang and I'm sober, oh yea I haven't drank alcohol for over a year.

Again welcome and sorry for the little picking on ya. I'm the guy that heckles the comedian just to get them going.
