22.5 tractor trailor rims SRW

Its about time for new tires again. I cant find 38" or bigger tires for my 20" rims for less than $400/tire. Was thinking about just getting 22.5" alcoa rims and running tractor trailor tires cause theyre so cheap. Problem is my 350 is SRW. Anyone know if they make 22.5" rims in 8 lug for SRW powerstrokes? If so, anyone have a pic?

They don't make 8 lug rims, only 10.

I think someone( looking at the diesel Rags) just came out with some that look like 10 lug but bolt to 8

I will do some research next time I am in the restroom LOL but since money is an issue I think the price of rims will deter you ?

I remember some one saying there was a 8 lug 22.5 out but they couldn't ever find pics or a link to them.
But if some place is making them they're going to be cheap knock offs, not alcoas. I personally wouldn't trust them.

Just get you some alcoas and adapters. But if you want taller than a 38" I would go with 24.5's. the common tire hight for the 24's is 46", common hight for the 22 is 36". Of corse you can varry that some with different tires, but when you get away from the common sizes they can get pricey.

Oh never mind, I wasn't thinking about you having a srw. You need a set of Alcoa super singles in 22.5, but I'll tell you now those tires are high! But they'll last prolly the life of the truck. Some people get the 22.5's machined down to 22's and put light truck tires on them. I'll see if I can dig up some pics.
