    your looking for 16.5 rims? in 10-12 wide correct. and you have a set of 15 8 lug rims. those are usually pretty pricey.. you can at least get 200 out of them. do a search on this board some one is looking for a set i think in the chevy form.

    I think I've got a set of older 16.5's from a Dodge (8 on 6.5) that may work...

    Free for the taking if you want them.

    Are you sure about the 5.5" bolt spacing?
    As far as I know until Ford started using 17" wheels on the trucks all the 8-lug wheels were the same. My '73 Chevy came with 16.5" wheels and I put a set of newer 16" wheels on without a problem. I even used a Dodge wheel. It fit just the same.
