    Anybody know anything about old Jackman wagon-wheel steelies from the '70s, or where to get a 15X8.5" set of 5 that would fit a BJ40?
    Thanks for any thoughts on these. They look like this:

    Rare these days. Best bet would be the auction sites.

    I finally found and bought a set of 4! Now I just need one more matching one for my rear spare. Anybody know where I could find a single 15X8 6X5.5 Jackman style 8-spoke vintage aluminum wheel (like below) from the '70s? I'd even take a steelie like above.

    Set I found looks like this: (only 8" and 6 lug though)

    Let me know. Thx! :)

    Proving to be very elusive... Anybody know of anyone who might have one of these they would part with? Cheers.

    I think I still have a pile of those wheels (like the top photo). I think I had collected at least 8 of them at one point. I'll have to ask family back in IN to see if they are still around.

    Have you mounted the wheels and tires yet? Would love to see how they came out.

    It's in getting an OME lift done. New BFG KM2 Mudders look fantastic on the old wheels though. I'll put some pics up here when I get it back.

    Wow are these old wheels proving to be elusive to find. :(
    I've searched every classified and auction site, as well as all the Toyota and Chevy forums online across North America. Nothing but two restored polished and powder coated full sets that are big bucks.
    If anybody knows where I can get a single steel or aluminum version of these, would be greatly appreciated. I know there's one rusting away in a barn somewhere!
    Thx.
    :)

    Thx. They are super rare and hard to find now (like the bj!) but they are a perfect vintage match. Was well worth the effort.
