    can you help with wheel choices...?

    I'm looking to buy 4 new tires and rims for my '84 Nissan 720 pickup.
    not sure where to start?
    I know I'm looking for a high quality 4 season all weather tire.
    how limited am I when it comes to finding new rims for my truck?
    any help appreciated.
    thanks.

    It has the same bolt pattern and similar offset as 90% of the trucks on the road, so not hard at all. :tu: :mrgreen:

    Start with GM wheels (Chevy Truck, Cadillac Escalade, Suburban, etc.), then try different options from newer Nissan trucks, or almost any 6-lug truck. 8)

    The real question is what size are you after? Anywhere from 15" to 20" is readily available.

    I'm not limited by size?
    I don't want to add spacers and such.
    I was thinking only 14" - 16"
    to prevent rubbing.

    I am going to check out some junk yards now that i know I have a very compatible bolt pattern.
    or I may just keep my current rims, which I do like but they need sand blasted or something.
    thanks for the reply's!
