Any way to have semi tires and 8X6.5 lug rims?

I am wanting something for winter and bad weather besides my boggers and i dont want to get a semi axle. i basically just want something that fills my wheel wells but doesnt run down real fast like a bogger. Whats the best way to put semi tires on my rig?

I doubt you would want these to be your winter rims

but they look like they would work at a first glance anyway
8-LUG

Look at vision wheels. They make a 19.5 srw wheel that is direct bolt on for 8 lug. There more like an Alcoa style wheel i think they would do what you want

I picked up the visions and some goodyear g622 rsd. They are going to last a while. The setup here at home cost me 3800 and change.

Just so you're aware, the 99+ Super Duty trucks use an 8x170mm lug pattern. Not the 8x6.5
