    Looks really good with those wheels. Did you happen to get adapters to make up for the little difference in bolt pattern?

    They bolted right up,These are off a big body BMW(7 series)
    I thought I would need adapters too,but they slide right on
    I also thought the rears would rub being 275 series tires,but no rub in the back.
    Now the front rub a little on the inner fenders ,but thats it.

    Ill get some pics from the rear tomorrow.the 275 are almost a foot wide.
    Kinda hoping that they would hook up better than the 16",but no luck
    I still got alot of work ahead of me,to finish it.
    I just happened to see a ad on cl that someone wanted to trade for a BMX bike,So i got rid of 1 of many.

    The bolt pattern is close enough they will slide right on, but not close enough that everyone has the luck of them staying on while driving down the road. At the least get hub centric rings, but I personally would never run them without adaptors.

    Sorry guys,Ive been busy at work and haven't had a lift not in use in the past 4 or 5 days.
    i'll get some good pics of the rear wheels in detail.also the only problem I'm haveing with the BMW wheels are the front wheels come loose after a couple of days.
    I'll take yhem to the wheel shop and see what they can do,if not than on to another set of wheels.

    Only problem?... Let me say it again. Don't run those wheels. You will damage your truck, hurt yourself, or hurt somebody else.
