Let me see you 16 inch stock Dodge eight lug rims.

I am on the hunt for a set of original single piece rims for my 72 D200. The problem is they are not easy to find and I need a set of rims now. I have a set of new nice tries but no rims to install them on. Sooooo, I figure if I have to buy a set of rims that are not original I may as well get something nicer. I do want t stay with Factory rims and I do like the look of plain steel rims on these old trucks. But I would also like to consider other options like aluminum or chrome. So, if you all do not mind I would like to see what all is out there and how they look mounted up.

Ford will fit and not look much different. There are also trailer wheels that will fit. Sizes run 6 in to 8 in with most at 6.5 or 7 in. The first radial tire wheels had a large roll on the bead flange. There were NO factory fancy wheels, even chrome were 'hot rod' and hydrogen embrittlement was a possibility with chrome. Dress wheels were painted second color on a two tone paint job. The rest were black, white, red or 'MO chrome' aluminum color that needed redone twice a year. Ten years later some dealers sold chrome already installed - the chromers wanted the core wheels.

I repainted most of mine company color monochrome, wheels, frame, bumpers, grill and some the inside of the cab. Single dress item was baby moon hub caps or wheel center covers with chrome lug nuts. Most of them got a Luberfiner chrome bypass oil filter.

That D200 almost looks like the paint would polish, if not color sand and clear coat.

I have used a Ford rim as a spare on the truck and it did fit great. I also have seen some Chevy rims that I really like from a later model truck. But any one who knoes anyting will know they are not Dodge rims. Even if I cover up the emblems, people will still know. The stock 16x6.5 is what I really want. I even tracked down a set of original hub caps in great shape. The spre on the truck is the original one and it is a two peice rim. That si why my cousin replaced them all those years ago.

Those are very nice. I like the hb caps as well. Are the pretty common or easy to find?

I would think....that's the most common wheel i have seen on them. I bet you can pick up a set on eBay for pretty cheap. I keep looking for a set of 17" H2 wheels to put on mine.

Most salvage yards are $20 to $35 and with the Ford rims the hubcaps cover the script.

The Chevy/GMC are hub centric and the center hole is to small for the rear hub.

94 and up the back space interferes without spacers, the hubcaps use metric lugs to stay on.

I have seen them aorund as well. I think I can get a set of those chrome ones, then sell them later on for what I paid for them if I ever locate the original rims I want. At least that is my plan.

Salvage yards areound here ar e slim ppickings. This area is an anomaly for GA. Right now until I locate a yard worth makign the trip just assume there are none. I have to rely heavily on Craigslist. However, we do go to Tennessee a lot where the pickings are very good. I di dnto think about the center whole on the Chevy rims. You are correct, they are out of the question now. Ford rims are kind of tough to locate in really good condition at a price that is reasonable for what I am doing. I am not a fan of mix matching parts and brands. So I would have to find a good deal on a set of nice Ford rims for my Dodge.
