Here are the stock wheel specs…

Bolt pattern 6 x 5.5”, 6 x 139.7mm
Stock backspacing is 4.5”
Stock Offset is 0”
Center bore is 106mm
PCD is 139.7 (stud)
Stock is 16”x 8” with Offset of 0mm.

The wheels you are considering are narrow at 7.5”. You should check with the tire shop that will mount your tires. I’ve heard of some shops not mounting larger tires on 7.5” wheels. YMMV

That’s a very nice rim. Never heard of them before, but seems they make some really good looking rims. I’d get it if my tire fits a 7.5” wide rim.

I don't see anything wrong with them, either - but then, I don't have a spiffy 200 sitting in my driveway that a '93 needs to compete with

I really like those fifteen 52 wheels. I've looked at those before. If you are getting a good price you might just take the risk. I doubt you would have any trouble selling them.

@Notthatguy those rims look pretty good. Maybe they need a polish or a refinish (i.e. clearcoat). If you get them blasted, do bead blasting. Sand blasting is too harsh.

Like everyone else stated, your factory rims are nice. A trip to the powdercoater or wheel refurb will do you well.

How much for those skinny ass rims? I’d pass either way.

I never knew this forum was so pro-OEM wheels. Plenty of people running aftermarket and lots of different options. Pick what you like that fits and run them.

They aren't. I've never seen so much backlash at such a simple question.

If the OP likes the wheels better than OEM, install them. The recommended wheel width for a 315/75R16 is 8" to 10", however there have been lots of folks that have installed 35's and even 37's on 7" or 7.5" wheels. Some tire shops won't do it for liability reasons.

I thought something was broken or he was stranded on the side of the road. I am glad it was just rims. Carry on.

I got the tires mounted on the rims, BF Ko2 recommend a least for 315/75/16 is 7.5. I got those rims from FB marketplace 5 for $600 brand new still in the box. the stock rims I'm planing on send it to refinished in the future. My Lx is cool but I just bought this LC from my next door neighbor original owner with 126k miles for $3000. she parked in the garage in 2017 and never moved her husband passed away and it was his truck.I just got 2" ironman lift kit with the foam cell shock.

You stole those wheels for that price! Look great. I really like those cloth seats. You are very lucky.
