    Glenn and Jack,
    You make a good point about the Tradesman Mopar wheels. I'm wondering if they still have the even lower, entry level H.D. steel wheel in paint, probably made for the SRW 3500. The good news for Jack is that Chevy and Dodge have the self same 8 on 6-1/2, lug centric pattern. The only thing I don't know is the difference between GM and Dodge width, inside bead to bead and back spacing. The two steel painted 16" wheels I picked up at a truck wrecking yard came off a city maintenance pickup with the absolute lowest trim level.
    Here they are after cleanup and a little pigment. H.D. enough for me. jefe

    I could find no actual number regarding the load rating in pounds on any site i tried, re: your new Nittos. E rating means nothing if it's only 3195 pound rated. Also, 10 ply rated means nothing if not connected with an actual load rating in pounds . . .

    Jim,
    Good catch. I learn something every day. It looks like mfgrs. just round up to the nearest 10th. I wonder how much R&D and especially ground level torture testing goes into the tire load rating code?
