Ok so a ferd lightning came in to work and got some new tires and alignment. We took off some NITTO NT555. 2 were bald and the other 2 have some good tread still on them. I asked if he wanted to keep the 2 good one's and he declined so i kept them for myself. Not the dilemma, they are in the bed of my truck now. Problem: They are for an 18 inch rim. Does anyone know of any other rims that will fit our trucks that may have a factory 18 inch rim? I don't believe dodge has any rims from the factory that are 18's. I'm just trying to get the times down on my truck without spending a crazy amount of money right now. thanks in advance!

Early 80's through mid 90's F150's and Bronco's are 5 x 5.5 if you're looking for a cheap wheel. Hit the junkyard to find the "best selling pickup" wheels...should be easy to find a set.

Yeah i may just not worry with these 18's. I cant justify buying a new set of wheels w/o buying new tires and i doubt i would find an 18 in an early 90s anything. These tires dont have a terrible lot of tread but they would hook better then the goodyears

Oh sorry I wasn't even thinking about the wheel diameter...

Maybe crown vics?

So they are the nt555 not the nt555r's?

Some Durango and Dakota factory rims are 18's but not to sure on width.

I was at that point too. Had a nice set of 17" rims/tires but needed more traction on the street. Ended up buying the XD Addicts 17x9 front which i could run my 275/55/17 Toyos tires and then brought 18x9 XD Addicts rears for my 305/45/18 Nitto NT555r DR's. the overall diameter is very close.

Kay9--Do you have any issues running those 305/45/18 Nitto NT555r DR's on a 9" rim?
