    Looking for appropriate wheels for my 33x12.50s. I want standard black wagon wheels, but I can't find some for a good price.

    I got mine at Summit Racing. I think I paid around $40 each.

    Landpimp mentioned in another thread recently that Discount Tire (I think!!!) would do custom backspaced wagon wheels for $40 a pop. Search for "wheels" under his username and you should find it...

    What size/style did you get?

    I think I need a 15x10 right?

    10 or 8 will work. Most guys seem to prefer 8" for off-road. I think Woody's formula is width x .66, so 12.5 x .66 = 8.25, so 8" is the closest.

    Where might I find the current backspacing of my wheels? I like the way they fit and look and would rather just copy them.

    Stock wheels have a 3.5 inch backspace. However, as noted above, some aftermarket wheels w/the same BS rub.

    Stock wheels have 3.35" backspace, not 3.5". See the 35x12.5" thread.. it's 85mm, convert to US standard and you get .... 3.35" (about).

    3.5" will work depending on how the wheel is made. If they don't work, you can shave a little off your caliper (tiny amount) and it'll be fine.
