I ordered these from greatlakeoffroad.com awhile back and took forever to decide on what wheels to use... I decided on some Bart IMCA wheels cuz they are cheap, strong and have a large valve stem that points to the center intead of the outside... no way to knock this one off.... :thumbsup:

the wheels are 15x8 with a 3" backspace... they measure out at 9" wide with the locks....

it only took two half days to get em built... it took longer for the paint to dry.... :D

and if anbody interested, I can build another set... (different pattern of course :cool: )

Nice choice on the wheels. Color combo is good too. :thumbsup:

Quick Q. Any idea how many inches is your front axle moved forward? Oh, I guess I can check the build thread, if it's in there.

svande8952 right?
