    They're 17", eight lug. Will they fit my truck? They look wicked cool, and I want them bad.

    Should I worry about weight capacity or anything like that? I will be running a grossly overfilled V-box.

    I'd pass unless they were Fisher red or Western yellow.

    They are not really 8 lug, just a dual 4 bolt pattern.

    if the pattern doesn't match up just drill the holes where you need them. use a bigger bit so you have more wiggle room too. this way it doesn't have to be dead nuts accurate.

    It says fits most cars, and it has 8 holes. They should work.

    That's OK, my GM truck rides like a car.

    I like your thinking. Usually I shoot for "dead on balls accurate", but with wheels I don't think it's that important.

    just pull a few studs off, and make a few fit, as long as you have 3 lugs you will be fine.

    You could alway use a hot glue gun and fasten them on.

    Now that's just silly. When I use the brakes, the glue would get hot. I don't want them falling off!

    Now we know why you only have a tractor in your sig pic:D

    Good news is that dave can just drill a few more holes in it and make it fit the tractor... rear only... to big for the front.
