I have a set of 16 in anodized black 16x10 rims made by american racing, they look basically like the stock 99-04 8-hole aluminum rims but with a bit of flare. I dont have a picture unfortunately. you could try them?

Edit heres a google picture of them http://www.americanracingwheelsinfo.com/images/3981.jpg

I have looked at this but they have some weird pitting and by the time I spend the time and or money to remove wheels find someway to strip all the chrome off and get a good primer/ few coats of paint or plasti dip then remount them...

figured I'd try and find some new or used ones before all the work. I was just really suprised the wheels have been this hard to find. also thx for help with my lift. im pretty sure all i need is proper length sway bar end links and i'll be putting my 4in skyjacker on and getting rid of this crazy 8in kit haha

I did the plastidip without dismounting the tires. Just clean the wheel and tire real well before spraying.

I sent this.

No problem about the lift. I am glad to help out.

How about these? 16x8, 3000lb load rate, brandy new, $79 each.

The 10s aren't much more, but you're limited to 4.0 or 4.125 backspace. Ideally, 4.5 works best with a 10, so, in reality, they would only stick out an additional 1/2 inch from what I'm rolling.

Factory length links and the sway bar mounts on the BOTTOM of the frame are what Rough Country recommends and it worked on my truck after snapping a cheesey relocation bracket.
