I just wanted to bump this thread back up because I just got a set of Jackmans 8 lug 16.5x9.75 First set I ever seen in person and dang are they heavy duty suckers! I think they was made in June of 1978 because they are stamped 6 78 right after the size on the inside of the wheel. I'm thinking about putting these on my highboy but wanted to see some more pictures, preferable on a red 4x4. I'm debating on if I should have them powdercoated or not. Was these gloss white or semi gloss when new? Kind of hard to tell with all the age and scratches on them.
Yeah mine have the "J" on them. I thought they was more of a semi gloss as well but its hard to tell. Straight gloss might be too shiny and look kind of cheesy and stand out. I 'm still up in the air on weather I want them powdercoated or just paint them at work sense I am a painter at a body shop. Either way I think there a cool period correct wheel for my truck. Adds to the old school bad *** ness.
