Lmc legend chrome wheels

I ordered a wheel from lmc to try on my 73 f100. The bolt pattern was correct. But the wheels sat in too deep. Rubbed on the bolt on backside of calipers and there was no clearence at tie rod ends. Anyone running this wheel with spacers ? Not a big selection of wheels out there. Its lowered with dream beams kit front and rear. Anyone with photos of wheel and tire setups feel free to put them up. I need ideas. But i need exact specs back space off set you name it. This truck is gonna be the death of me.

Do you have a link for the wheels? Were there no backspacing and offset options?

Let's see a pic of your truck.

Wheels




LMC Truck had the wheels. No options other than 15x8. The manufacturer of the wheels only offer 1 BS size. May consider a spacer of about 3/4 inch.

Wheels

The bolt pattern has to be 5x5.5 and the bore size has to be 87.10. Unless im reading wrong. They only offer the 1 size.

Well I was just saying this is a common wheel style, so if you measured out the space you have for wheels, offset, back spacing, etc you could probably return those and get a set that would be a perfect match for your truck.

Wheels

Actually. There are very few wheels made for this truck. The centerbore is so big . Unless you have machine work done. Your only options are basicly wagon wheels. Unless its a 4x4 then your options open up.

If you go to the page I linked it shows a 15x8 and a 17x8 option. Both 5x5.5 and both 4.5" backspacing with an 87.10 center bore. To see the 17x8 there's a tab you need to click on to show the 17" options.

I contacted US Mags awhile ago. they assured me all their wheels are made to order and that most styles they have can work for our trucks, including the above.

I had to use spacers on the front of my '76 F-150 4X2 in order to install Cragar S/S wheels. If you go this route be sure to replace the wheel studs with longer units to compensate for the thickness of the spacer and maintain thread engagement.
