    Something followed me home: 7 slot love

    Isuzu trooper 16x7 spare steelies as main wheels...

    Isuzu aftermarket rims are either not my style or more money than i want to spend. I'm going to be rocking 235-85r16's most likely. How about spare steelies for that cheap price, thin profile and cool NATO look?

    C3500 Sierra - SRW conversion. What's needed?

    What is required to go to a single rear wheel (SRW) on a longbed Dually pickup? I'm assuming the axle is a 14 bolt (Model year 2000 truck) Obviously, one would need to go to a flatbed or SRW specific bed, to eliminate the "dually hips". Is the axle able to accept a 3/4 ton wheel, with a...
