Choices for aftermarket rims that retain front lock hubs?

Question is is there any aftermarket rims I can purchase that will allow me to retain the front locking hubs? If so web links would be great. I don't want rims bad enough to forfit 4wheel drive.

Thanks
Adam

As far as I know, no rim should make you lose 4WD. I recommend a good set of steel rims, black . see my superford

Yeah, you'll have trouble finding rims that don't allow for 4x4, that would fit on a 5x5.5 bolt pattern. It's the hub caps you gotta watch.

For the money, these are probably your best choice.

i was going to say these that someone made a thread about the other day
time keepers ... they are bullet proof

but seriously... any rim that is 5x5.5 bolt pattern with a hole in the middle should work... you just by closed caps for the rear and open for the front ... and if you are getting a 12.5 inch wide tire you can go with either a 8" of 10" wide rim

I vote for 15x10's with 33x12.5's. That's what I've got and they look sweet

Any rim will work, you just need a center cap with the hole in it to get to the locking hub. Of you can also leave the center cap off like this

I love the look of the mickey thompson classic and classic lock line of wheels. A 15X10 rim is about 110/150 depending if you get the imitation wheel lock look or not and they are just good looking wheels. M/T has some very high quality ppoducts from what ive seen also.

I dont remember who made them, but the only place I could find them is LMC truck. They had them for $199 each in polished aluminum. I had them powdercoated in gun metal grey right when I bought them.

I looked everywhere for a deep dish 5 spoke wheel in 16x10 like that but the only ones I could ever find was in 5 and 6 lug, not 8, so as soon as I saw that set in the LMCtruck catalog I ordered them right away.
