new rims

One of the first things Andy will tell you (I think) , after the axle info, is that you need to find aftermarket rims with a high enough load rating. The ones in the enclosed picture do have a good rating.

Good luck with your choice, there are a lot of options out there.

Steve.

If your looking for mag wheels, there are tons of different ones available.

Again, make sure they have a rating of at least 2600 pounds each.

If you look hard at the 'after' shot, you can also see the Centramatics.

Here is a thread that I started in May 2008 that covers my Eagle Alloy 16" wheels and BF Goodrich tires. I have put on a lot of miles since then and no problems. I installed new Henchen axles late last year and the ride is great. post 23 starts the change and has some pictures and links.
