Hey there all, My current tires are bald and the wheels are just ugly to begin with. I was wondering if people could shoot me some suggestions as far as different wheel and tire combinations that would look good on my truck. (include wheel brand/model/size and a suitable tire) The current wheels are 17" and the truck is a longbed 79 at stock height.

On my Luv I have some old-school looking Slot Mags, and I personally dig the way they look, I am not sure where you can get a similar set.

Also I have a spare set of rims that came with my Luv when I bought em, the tread is bad but the rims are cool Ill toss up a pic of a comparable set of rims if you're interested, your tag said you live in Portland, I'm just a ways North in Washington.

I should note that both sets of mine are 15" Rims. The ones I'm willing to pass off are 6" wide.

File comment: The spare set look like these. Just with the Luv lug pattern

I'm using stock chevy 1500 wheels. They are 17"x7.5 wheels. I warped them in the smallest tire that would fit a 205x40R17. That small of tire is smaller than the stock tire so it sits 1/2" lower all around. My truck is lowerd 3" all around so that gives you an idea of fitment in the wheel wells.

The stock steal wheels are easy to find and cheap. I picked mine up for $50 sold the content caps for $40 and iv got the TPM sensors for sale as well so I'll end up making $ for getting the wheels.

Something is wrong with your computer or device. The photo is in his post, and it's in your quote of his post. Maybe you can't see photobucket images (I hate it, myself).
