What im really looking for are some Dodge D50 rims. Something like this:
I spent the day at 4 different junkyards... and every truck in every yard was rimless. What gives?!? IS there some type of rim junkie out there snatching up all the rims out there? I asked a guy at one of the yard if there's a place that sells used rims, but he was no help.
I also stopped at les shwab, but their selection sucks! Anybody have a lead on some 14" 6lugs out there that wont break my bank?

IIRC, there were several of those kinds of dealers in the Bay Area, mainly Oakland and some in San Jose (none in Pleasanton;)). I vaguely remember seeing one over by the Carson City PnP awhile back (haven't been over there lately), can't recall exactly.

But seems we have more small trucks here in Aus I guess it would be easier to find 6 lug 14"s here. You Americans and your over sized vehicles..... Thank god for you subie drivers!

I posted a thread on LuvTruck.com and got a few replies. I really like the style of the Chevy Luv 14" rims, hopefully I can end up with a set soon.

you know... M/T's look HOTT on alloys...
Posted 11 June 2006 - 10:36 PM
I will have alloys for my street tires tho. But thats a whole 'nother paycheck in a whole 'nother month.
Posted 13 June 2006 - 01:29 AM
I would not use alloy's offroad... It's just craziness! Steelies FTW.
I tell ya what. I have some 10" suzuki steelies. You can just about juggle them. Although I think your tire choice would be a little small for those!

$125 to have four Chevy Luv rims sent to me from Medford Oregon. They are identical to this style here:
It will be a few weeks before I can afford the tires for them... but it will give me time to drill them and paint them. I cant wait!!!

Should look sweet on your hatch. Are you going to have an LSD or welded rear? That's my next mod I reckon...
Posted 15 June 2006 - 09:14 AM
I will have a LSD and a Weber.... both of which are sitting in the garage as we speak, just waiting. And yes, the LSD has already been converted

I found the paint I used on my red hatchback that happened to match the factory color perfectly. It was Duplicolor "candyapple red T-208" found at Schucks etc. For under the hood I used plain old Rustoleum "red." That stuff was also a good match but was cheaper and had a nice finish without sanding.
Hope yer wheels come out good.
ps: I had a set of those wheels w/ Khumos. Cool wheels. Wish I kept 'em.
Posted 19 June 2006 - 01:14 AM
Im also gonna be getting the Kumho's for these rims. Maybe I should install my WRX scoop and make a twin of your Hatch? Do you still have that thing? Any chance we'll see it at this years show?
