    Has anyone put 16x7 8 bolt wheels from Wheel Vintiques on there truck? Just wonder how you liked them and if you have any pics? I was thinking about putting a set on my 78 c20 with 265/75 and a 2.5 inch lift. Thanks for any info

    I'm curious as to why? Factory 16's are only .5 inch narrower and can be found cheap everywhere.

    I put Wheel Vintiques 16x7 8 bolts with 265/75's on my 75 C20 back in November. I had them powder coated white for the stock look. The suspension is also stock height. The first picture is the 9.50x16.5 tires that was on it when I bought it. Hope this helps Jeff.

    I just recently finished my wheels. I had some 16x7 ford 8 lug rims powder coated black. I went with them because they're a dime a dozen and I had some laying around. They are also half an inch wider than the gm ones. But the other thing is that they have a better offset to make them stick out a little further (which I really dislike with the gm ones). You could easily have them powder coated white and save a little to spend on other things. Just my .02

    I'm running 285/75/16 tires, 2" Tuff country lift with block in the back and new stock 3/4 ton 56' springs in the rear. I think I may take the blocks out in the back because of how high it sits in the back now...

    Here are some pics. The one with the bed off actually has the ford ones on the back and gm ones on the front for comparison.

    I'm also using mid 90's C/K series truck beauty rings and center caps. Had to cut a hole in the front center caps for the hub to go thru. And I'm using the 2000's chevy truck center cap lug nut covers since they're a little longer. The 90s ones barely caught the exterior lug threads.

    I noticed you are running Michelin tires. Are they P metric or LT's ?

    Can you do a 3/4 rear shot so we can see how they fit width wise? I have been thinking about those for my truck also.
