WTB-old style weld hub centric wheels

Like title says. Apparentley weld used to make true 4.93 hub bore wheels for our trucks, but not anymore. Now they are like 5.00. So, I am wanting an old set if anybody has any or knows where to get them. I have tried ebay but never see any. Maybe im not using the right search lingo?? I'm wanting to do a 4" lift and 35's so they would need like 4"-4.5" of backspacing im figuring. I'd like a 16" or 17" wheel with just about any width. Thanks for any help. Maybe the new welds with 5.00 hub will work, i dont know? Yall chime in

I had a set of 17x10 -24 offset with 4.5 backspacing (i think) weld rock crushers on a 4 inch lift. Gave it a wide aggressive stance, and only had to pull the fender lining back. Check out my sig pic. Now i couldn't tell you about the hub bore because they used a lug centric setup which is what most after market wheel companies do to keep a "universal" setup.

From what I understand, you can run the newer style wheels with acorn style lug nuts. This makes them lug centric instead of hub centric.
