Here are some vintage rims.
“I have a set of 4 aluminum slot mag wheels that are in very nice shape. The bolt pattern is 5 on 5.250 with a 4″ center opening. These came off of a 1960 jeep willys that I got but I think they may also fit ford or may fit some old buicks or olds, not to sure on it. The slot mags are in very nice shape. Give me a call, I’m asking $150 for the set and I will also through in a steel spare.I would trade for a set of 4, 235-75r-15 white letter tires. Thank,mike.763-263-8221″
Can’t beat the price on these if you want some old school slim mags.
“15” x 7″ fits Ford, Jeep, Suzuki, Dodge. 5 x 5.5 pattern. Tires hold air and are balanced, but are about 25% cxk”
UPDATE: Were $600. **SOLD**
These are the older style dogs and appear in good condition.
“4 Desert Dog Tires on 5 lug Ford 1/2 Ton Rims. Same pattern as Terra Tires. 90% Tread. 31×11.5 on 15″ DOT Tires good for snow, mud & sand. Great for off road racing!

These are hard to find, 4 old school aluminum mags. The seller also has 2 12×15 mags as well. These are all 5×51/2 bolt patterns. (note that this jeep might still be for sale as well)

If you can make them work, it’s a great price.

Gerald spotted these. I don’t think I’ve seen this rim style.
“Real (NOT Chinese knockoff) Alcoa forged rims with BFGoodrich 245/75-16 tires. Wheels have under 500 miles run time and are like new. The backsides are not even dirty or brake dusted.

These wheels were special ordered from Alcoa years ago, and the sizes shown are correct as advertised. Each wheel was approx. $300 new. $450 / set including tires”
Here’s a nice set of paddles.
“14.5/15 Dick Cepek paddle tires. 5/5.5 Bolt pattern fits jeep ford. 12″ Alcoa Polished Aluminum wheels. No damage to paddles. They hold air no dry rot. $500 obo shipping???? 314.799.6983″
Gerald spotted these old school rims.
“15×7 wide 5 on 5 1/2″ bolt pattern Fit Dodge Trucks and vans,Ford and Jeep $200 for 4.”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $350.
Here’s four old school slots Gerald found.
“Aluminum Slotted wheels 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern. 15 x 8.5 wide, will fit older Ford, Dodge, Jeep, Scout, Bronco, etc.”
James found these unusual tracks last night. He gave the seller a call today, only to discover that while the Tracks were $400, the steering mechanism was going to be extra. These are about 500lbs a piece, so shipping is an unlikely option. You can learn more about these Tracks here: http://www.offroaders.com/tech/jeep/Jeep-Wagner-Trac-Tank-Tracks.htm
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $150.
The pic shows four rims, but only 3 are 5 1/2 x 5 bolt pattern.
“15” by 7″ wide Ford bolt pattern Old style slot wheels ( made by Western) like the ones on Starsky and Hutch Torino or the old time drag car Willys of the day. These wheels were bought for another project that I sold and no longer need. The good: they are not cracked anywhere or have curb rash. The bad: three are 5 1/2″ bolt pattern , one is a 5″ .. I know I know this is goofy but i bought to go on a trike project and only needed two. Maybe you only need two or maybe you got a 5 1/2 laying around and need a 5″ because somewhere there is a set of three 5″ and one 5 1/2 ” we’ll make a deal to swap. I’ll also consider a trade on almost anything else — Old motorcycle”
Here’s a couple nice rims.
“Pair of 15×8.5 Mag Wheels. Bolt pattern 5 lug 5 and 1/2 inch spaceing (Fit Jeeps, Dodge, and Ford, 4×4 etc). Price $250 Cash for TWO Wheels.”
Here’s some spare rims.
“Here are a set of wheels that came off a Willys Jeep but will fit others. They are a 15 inch wheel and about 10 inches wide. These look alot alike but are actually 2 different styles of centers. One is slotted and the other is solid – 2 of each. There is some surface rust on these but not pitted. Tires have minimal tread but may make good rollers or something. $100 for all 4 OBO 360-513-9824″
It looks like a good price.
“Have a set of five, 31×15.5×15 super terra grip tires, 2@ 90%, 2@85%, and the spare is at 75%. All mounted on 14″ wide 6 lug (6 on 5.5) black steel wheels. (these tires are for off road use only). May be willing to trade for a set of 31, 32, 33, or 35 inch radial mud terrain tire. i.e bf goodrich, toyo mt, or similar. e-mail or call (360) 2l3-435l”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $300
“SET OF 4. WILL FIT JEEP OR BRONCO. BOLT PATTERN IS 5 ON 5.5….$300 FOR THE SET. SET OF 2 PADDLE TIRES ALSO AVAILABLE.”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $175.
Gerald has a set of these and identifies them as Appliance Wheels.
I suspect these are not 5 x 5.5 lug pattern, but if they are, they are a good price.
“Set of 4 Hot rod vintage wheels, 15 inch cast multi finned, looks great on period correct cars, Come by and take these home for your project”
I suspect these 8″ wide, but I can’t tell for sure.
“set of four hurricane wheels. nice shape. came of mide 70’s jeep> lots of other jeep parts. 216-440-1870″
This is a good price on some unusual 5 x 5.5 rims.
“4 aluminum wheels that will fit ford, jeep or nissan, 5 on 5 and quarter, have all four in good shape, 10 in. wide, 15 in. wheels $100 770-540-6571″
I know someone can use these.
“4 Early Vintage Jeep / Willy’s New 15″x8″ Steel Wheels. Rims Never Mounted, For Drum Brakes Only! Call Ted At 413.786.9529″

Here’s a great price on a Tractor Terras. The downside is they are mounted on 6 bolt Chevy Rims.
“tractor tires on 15″ wide steel wheels 6 lug for chevrolet and toyota $100.00 360-740-0694″
Here’s two offroad retreads we can’t get in the United States (to the best of my knowledge). They are available from technopneu in Quebec (information courtesy of Felix at our new Quebec bureau!) & in the UK as shown below.

Travis: Maybe this will answer any Lift questions you have
I’m not sure who operates the Jeep.US41.org website (I couldn’t find his name, but saw his picture), but he has put together a long, well written webpage on Lifts.
Here’s an excerpt from the page: Whether or not you off-road in your Jeep, you will eventually catch the Jeep bug, and you will find yourself suffering from “Lift Envy.” Lift Envy is a disease that causes Jeep owners to lust after higher lifted vehicles with bigger and bigger tires underneath them every time a “superior” Jeep drives past. But what the heck is a lift, and what is involved in going bigger? This article explains it all.
