sky96744 has them black rock crawlers on his truck. You can see his profile here.

I thought the soft 8's had the holes in them? Are they 'rock crawler' rims too?

Look at my gallery but its a black truck

Crager Soft 8's


I can comment on cheapness...I obught mine for 39.99 each! They aint cheap...balanced out perfectly when I got them, after offroading the 5th time I bent one rim but it balanced back out....wheels hold up agaisnt alot....and for 40 bucks, if you really do bend one badly...replacement wont be an issue!

Spend 40 bucks more for your set and get Pro Comp Rock Crawlers. Gotta love a warranty

Go with the 4.5. It's about .25' shy of ZR2 stance, and it's pretty close to stock (havn't heard about blowing parts with 4.5), and it's small enough that stock sized tires will clear without rub (at least my Kumho 795 all-seasons did)

Edit: One more thought....if I were to get new rims, or do my rims again, I would get something a little more unique than the steel D rings or 8-holes...I just see 'em alot, and I like to stand out..But, you can't beat the price, and they definitely look great

I did the same thing, and I got toasted. Ordered the 8-hole ones, buy 3 get 1 free, got a call after the promo ended that they were out of stock in the bolt pattern, so they suggested switching to the D rings...which I did, not thinking they were simply re-ordering...

Basically I lost the 1 free deal [&o]

Probably my fault though, as I didn't check up on it...eh..

You should of called them back about that. Your original order was placed for the buy 3 get 1 free. They should have honored it since it wasn't your fault that they were out of stock. I called 4wheelparts last night and ordered some new tires. Had them price match another site and included free shipping.
