I thought it was a pretty common rim, but they don't seem to sell them anymore? I'm looking for the black steel aftermarket rims that used to be sold in the tire stores including pep-boys pretty cheap. I just need one, I took out a curb... well more like it took out of me. I'm talkin about for a truck.

Well its not a factry rim, its aftermarket. Its them steelies you used to be able to buy cheap. 6 lug and 16 inches is all I know at the moment... gonna guess an 8.5 width and not sure of the offset. Thats a guess. I'll take a pic in a few mins.

Pep Boys used to carry a whole bunch of them, but they say they don't carry them anymore. That sucker is bent pretty far. TireRack says it has no wheels that fit my car, and its not letting me browse their inventory. :(

Six lug, this would tell me it is for a Chevy/GMC 1/2 tom 4X4. Is this correct?

hmm I went to the pepboys website and searched under a suburban 6 lug 1500 instead of a C2500 pickup and the rim did come up under a 16x7. I gotta make sure thats the right size. Same as this pic but in a 6 lug. For some reason I'm thinking these are an 8 or 8.5 width. tires are 265/75 R16. Pepboys is $95+shipping, I'd like to find a better price.

Its a C2500 (2wd) which do have a different offset than the 4x4

"ARE" is the nameof the company if I'm pretty sure. American racing. the wheel is the Wagon Wheel

Might want to take a look in slower DE for a junk yard... might get lucky....

It is a Crager 342 series black "D" window wheel. Do a google search for it as there are tons of places to find it. Summit racing would be a good place. It probably has a stamping on the inside of the wheel that says 16x8, 16x7 or ? Need to measure your back space also to get the right one.

Here you go.

Yeah, I don't think its the american racing one. I bought the set used, and they had pepboys tires on them too, so I think they are the ones that pepboys originally sold. I could be wrong. The craiger looks like the right one and I like the price but I gotta measure what I have. Yes its a 6-lug 2wd 2500 :confused:

From 1988 to something like 1993 on the light duty 3/4 tons. My 96 has a 8 hole pattern.

I can't find a stamp... I ran a measuring tape through the hole and measured from one end of the rim to the other and it measures an 8.5 width. I don't know the offset, all I know is its not the same as the 4x4 offset because the a**h*ole that had this truck before me put on a set meant for a 4x4 and they were in too far and scraped the a-arms all up when I hit bumps. I ended up buying these rims used and they were $400 with an almost new set of tires.

To measure the back spacing lay the wheel face down and place a straight edge across the rim. Now measure the distance from the back of the wheel (where it is bolted to the hub/drum) to the straight edge. That is the back spacing. Also if you measured the wheel face to face through the center hole and you came up with approx 8.5" then it is most likely a 16x8 wheel. Rim width is measured where the tire bead goes. Now find your back spacing and you are ready to go.

Check out Summit Racing, could this be the wheel you are looking for?

Kind of scary... I was in a junk yard yesterday searching for a front clip, I found a truck exactly like mine, with the same aftermarket rims... just my luck they were 15" 5 lug instead of a 16" 6 lug.
