Since i had some free time and 5 X wheels laying around waiting to go to the powder coater, i figured i would make this cross section up as to make finding wheels to fit the new x simpler

these are not the minimum dimensions for clearance, they are just the dimensions of the 2005+ 16" steel wheel, once i mount them i will measure clearance and shade in the cross section accordingly so we know what dimensions a wheel needs to have in order to fit the X.

this should be alot easyer than trying on a million different wheels just to see if they fit.

without further adue...




(not to scale, bottom of picture is the outside of the rim)

it gives you the general slope of that part of the rim


out 2-1/2", down 2-1/4"

yes, it is a random spot

Would that be the ever-important brake caliper clearance dimension? It looks like it, if I'm reading it correctly.

Also, has anyone test-fitted Unique 297 steelies?...They have the same specs as the MB Predator wheels that supposedly fit: (16x8, 6 - 4.5 bolt pattern, 12mm offset).

I did a search here but didn't see them mentioned.

EDIT: Discount Tire's site sucks, links don't work after a while...I removed it.

Haha, you should rub it in. There was like 4 peeps behind you that wanted them. :)
I haven't even openned the boxes. They are just stacked up in the garage where I cannot even get to them anymore. Dam shame. But I call it being prepared for the tires I will have in the future.

I've noticed one really bad thing with my 305/70/16 on steelies. If I thought my mileage was bad before now I'm in a state of perpetual depression. Especially since I've had to make 3 and a half trips from Ft Bragg to KC,MO in 30 days. :confused2:
