Default Newbie question

Hi,
I'm looking to get some rims for my 96 Ram. I found a set of "old school" steelies that look sick (imo). The guy that is selling them said they won't work on my truck because they are not set up to allow air to the brakes since they are for old vehicles. Is this true? Thanks

First, welcome to the board. I am surprised that you have not had a reply to your question. I would guess that if they are the old solid wheels from the drum brake era that there may be some truth to what the man says. Had never hear of that, that I can recall, but it does seem to make some sense.

Yeah, hadn't thought of it either. Was hoping he was wrong even though it does make sense. The rims themselves look sick and they're for a good price

I do not see why the brakes couldnt get enough air through the back to keep them cool enough... Its not like your going ot be taking your truck out on road courses or anything and racing it lol
