The 8 lug adapters/rims are dumb. You trying to make people think you're running big boy running gear?

nope, no need. The rim is only available in 8 lug.

Every 3/4 ton/ 1 ton truck with semi wheels has 10 lug adaptors. do people think they are running 5 ton and bigger running gear! NOpe:duh:histerica

Lets hear how dangerous adaptors are now..... once again LOL They are on thousands of vehicles everywhere!!! As long as you have proper adapters with lug length they are just fine.

Oh wait there is bearing wear... your telling me all these broncos with minimal offset and 12 and 14" wide rims dont have the same problems... yep, they sure do!!!! Which they rarely happen!

I'd buy different rims.
good, your not building my Bronco the last time I checked, and I dont like 20 yr old designed and outdated wheels that most run here. :goodfinge
I also dont like cheap steel wheels on something that wont be visiting rocks, hell even my rock vehicle got Walker Evans aluminum wheels

Wait till you get a flat mall crawlin, then you'll learn how fun 8 lugs are! Instead of buying a $100 bling wheel and a $100 adapter, why not just get a really nice $200 per wheel set of 5 lug'rs?? KMC has some nice wheels for about $200 a wheel..

Why wouldn't you want to wheel the bronco? Afraid of breaking the adapter? :toothless

And as for helping Tim through an obsticale... I really don't see that happening.. (Except for that 1 mud pit run.. :toothlessis) His rig is built to go anywhere and do anything.. Hell he even pulled out a Super Duty from a mud pit.. :thumbup

Should research who you start taking stabs at..

But it's your rig.. Do to it what you want.. Who cares if people like it or not.

There is not a nice set of truck style KMCs that I have ever seen, Maybe your thinking in the XD line. Very few and far between of any good looking wheels for a 5.5 vehicle with very little offset.

Mall CRawlin? I dont know about you but I have a Powertank CO2 tank, air tools, and full toolbox for doing stuff like that in My bronco! hand tools? :histerica:doh0715:

Im not afraid to break an adapter, Bronco is not for wheeling aside form running to a quick hunting spot. I don't need a Bronco to go wheeling, I have other vehicles and quads!

It is just going to be a nice daily driver

I dont need to research anyone, I know what my jeep does and what "so called" serious wheeling machines can do. I have done every major trail in My Jeep from Johnson Valley to Moab. I wheeled everywhere! Its been down class 4-5 trails. MUD? thats not wheeling, thats mudding!!! :goodfinge:thumbup

Yes, trendy is ALWAYS better.

Not trying to be a dick, but talking shit about "most" when a couple of people were giving you crap.....wtf?
Who said anything about trendy? Its about what you like, I dont like old Turbine, 5 hole, 6 hole, Baja style rims.

It is obviously not trendy when they dont even make it for a Bronco that I am putting them on!!
