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.

Ck out the truck rims in #10 reply, those are power coated steel spoke Jackmans with mil take off old bias 36's

I believe semi gloss white?? Do yours have the "J" stamped in them?

At least it a HB with white spokes.

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.

Mine seemed like they were semi gloss white, but maybe it is because they were old. I don't think a straight gloss would look right. They are really heavy, but they look good!

Love the turbine wheels. But then again I own a General Lee!

Whatever I find faster slots or turbines will go on my f250.

But I'm tempted to go modern as well.......

I thought you were thinking of going newer on your Big Red?

Ok no not me, maybe 16.5 polished slotted mags or the fins, but nothing new. Maybe the 16.5 Jackmans?

Consider this color option, (yea 5 on 5 1/2) and if I went new like the other 2 pics it would be to get 16's and have a wider tire selection.

Or I have a set of these, imagine them polished up.

Will 16s clear the brakes on the 3/4 tons?

I like the second set of new ones you posted.

Nice truck BG350

Jeff you just have to get the correct "off set" or "back spacing".

I hear 15's will fit a on a F250 with double piston front calipers, with a little caliper grinding.
