Rim Question/Help

Postby Slack Tide » Sat Sep 29, 2012 8:28 am

I have stock, 8 lug, aluminum rims from my F250 on Craigslist.
I keep getting questions like "will they fit my '98 GMC?"

How the hell should I know?
Is there a link out there that could tell me all the vehicles that my rims would fit on? I can't find one.

Don't waste your time answering. 99% of the time if they are serious about buying, they will know if it fits.
If you haven't already, put your bolt pattern/back spacing, general condition of product in your add. If your still getting questions after that point, your probably dealing with spammers.

What IS "back spacing?" I had that question....

Also, mentioning spammers....
What is that BS you get when they tell you "please remove the item and I will buy them. I will be sending you electronic payment is 10 days etc...."

you should have 8x170mm lug pattern (if 1999+) so it will not fit any 8 lug GM or dodge.

backspacing is how far the mounting surface is from the back face/ edge of the wheel, here- http://www.google.com/imgres?hl=en&sa=X ... 0,s:0,i:74
