8-Lug Steel Wheels. Who Makes 'em?


Recommended Posts

Looking for some GM 4x4 Truck wheels. Have to be 8 Lug. Have to be 4x4.

Scenes unlimited is temporarily closed for Health Reasons. Fireball only has 5 Lug and 6 Lug Steelies.

Anybody else sell them? Or is there a kit I can rob them from?

Thanks!

You can make them if you don't have a source for them.  Have done that many times by carefully grinding away the existing lug pattern and re-drilling new holes to form an 8 lug pattern.  Insert some small craft wire and #15 fusion beads for the lug nuts.  They are hex shaped ceramic pieces that just drop over the wire.  Snip the wire off after securing the beads with some CA.   In this case I needed a 6-lug pattern rather than the original 5 lugs.1045.JPG.351b972e16e0d8489446770a1a5ad904.JPG

Fireball Modelworks makes an excellent set of 8 lug wheels with tires. Designed for his Ford F-250 conversion kit, these are very nice wheels and can be used on a GM or Ford if you wanted. Part Number FMR-154B, they are $15 on his website for a set of 4 wheels & tires.

Fireball is not selling the FMR 154B, at least, not right now.

Scott S, the second Tire/Wheel from the top Works. 

Here is the wheel I need to find. Thanks for all the help, fellas.
