Well, Stockton wheels got back to me. They make custom wheels (for a price). They said they can make their Series 72's with the specs we are looking for. They come powdercoated.

I am looking at 16x8".
They are $134 each.

I am ordering one to see if it fits.

I did the same thing, but thought $135 was steep for a steel wheel. I hope they fit though!

Heck if they do, maybe a group buy would be in order!

Unfortunately, $135 probably isn't too bad. Before anyone knew of all the 05 fitment problems, a local place quoted me over $100 for some American Racing steel wheels. They claimed it was due to the price of steel.

Ok, I know this information has been around XOC and probably here as well, but does anyone know the exact specs for the wheels?

From what I have found they are;

16x7
6x4.5 bolt pattern
5.5" back spacing

Is that correct? Anyone know for sure?

Now, looking at 8" wheels, should we go with a deeper back spacing, or do you think they will hit? I want to make sure the wheels don't hit things such as shocks and such, but I also want to make sure that with the extra 1" that the tires don't hit the fenders when compressed.

I know $134 is a bit high, but if they fit, I'll pay the small extra price. I don't know if the pressure sensors will fit in them. I don't plan on putting them in these wheels, as they will be for off-road tires.

If they fit, I have to see if I can fit 33" boggers. :)

there's a 30mm offset also but I think you can go less, I would stay with 5.5 B/Sor at least 5B/S

Don't forget the design of the wheel is what matters. U can have all the specs correct, but the design needs to clear the caliper. If the design is the same as the picture you posted, it probably will not fit.

If they put the 30mm offset in that should take care of the caliper issue(I think) Ponyboy you probally know this one best though. I can't even find a shop around here that stocks offroad wheels.You can rent dubs from Colortyme but you wait 4-5 weeks for normal wheels to buy. :violent1:

Not necessarily (though i wish). The offset is just measuring the wheel mounting surface to the center of the rim. If you look on the stock wheels, you can see what i mean. Hope this helps explain it:

Yep I :pottytrain5: when I saw the commercial on TV.

Ok that explains it better to me. lol I wasn't completly clear how the offset figured into it. So basically it's a matter of design for the wheel more than offset that's messing us up
when it comes to steely's.

I never knew you had to have a Masters Degree to understand wheels. :homework:

Glad I have the experts at The New X to help. :cheers:

Ok, so although it would be expensive. a wheel with a 6.5" back spacing and 1" spacers would probably work then. Not that I want to go that route.

Jason,

I was wondering how you would explain this to Stockton. I think you should send them Poney's pictures.

*bump!*

Hey dude, what happened with this? I was looking into custom wheels, the pic you posted, in black. They have all kinds of info you need to give them on the order form.

Did you ever get around to trying to see if they could "build in" a spacer (much like the stock wheel) or a way for it to clear the brakes?

I know someone posted measurements of the stock wheel - I wonder if with that info, along with the dimensions of the wheel well and the location of the mounting surface, and knowing the caliper location, they might be able to produce a wheel for us.

Before I contact Stockton, I wanted to see if anything ever came from your dealings with them.
