Default look what I bought.

bought these off a local guy from a classified site. came off a 1996 s10 pickup. paid $160 and got the rims, centrecaps and plastic lugnut caps, just need to buy the special lugnut. Is there a metal lugnut I can buy so I dont have to use the gay black caps.

these rims came from a 2wd truck so i'm pretty pumped that they'll stick out a couple inches over the stock ones from mine. Now I just need to get my dad to switch the rubbers over from mine.



finally get to ditch my ugly as* rims.
Might have to debadge my truck now since the centre caps have bowties on em, lol.

It will still have a Jimmy front end. And who cares if they have a bowtie on them, they look better and thats all that matter right?

Good for you man!

Its just my opinion, but I like your stock rims better, but it is your truck! It'll look good either way!

Here you go.
The first two pics are 2wdr rims and stock sized tires. With that set up we rubbed like 31" tiures do on stock 4x4 rims on a stock 4x4.

The next three pics are 4x4 rims onwith stock tires.
