Hi everyone!

I found a parts truck for the replacement of my rusted out frame on my truck. I only have 60,000 miles on her and it would be a shame to junk it when the running gear is still solid and the interior is leather and mint.

The parts truck is a 99 Amigo and has everything but the wheels. Any idea what cheap steel wheels I could get to allow it to be transported by car hauler from out of state to me?

I won't be running the steel wheels on the road, just need to get it on the truck and be able to move it around so I can separate the body from the frame and do the replacement work.

Thanks in advance! :wink:

Do you live near any pull a part places? You could grab some steel wheels off a Rodeo for cheap. Like $8.50 cheap.

Wow! That looks like it came that way. The larger size looks good on the Trooper. Find some Isuzu center caps and you would really have everyone fooled.

Anyone with 17s? Or what other zu's came with 17s beside the axioms? I love the axiom wheels but their back spacing is a little much. Need something thats a little further out from the frame, can use spacers sure but if I dont have to y? kind of stuck with 17s to get the overall tire profile im after.....least at a friendly price.

Nissan has a nice back spacing, you have to take the wheels to have the hub bored out...
GM wheels I do not know the back spacing space, you have to take the wheels to have the hub bored out...
Toyota need spacers... You DO NOT have to take the wheels to have the hub bored out...

I've got a 1992 Isuzu Trooper that I put 17"x9" aftermarket wheels that came off a 02 GMC Yukon XL. I had a machine shop open up the bore from 4" to 4.25 ". They work great. Running BFG KO's.

They are "V-TEC Raptor's" from Americas tire or Discount Tire. New ones are $109 each. I bought 4 used ones with tires for $220. Score.

I just put Axiom 17" wheels on my Trooper. There are two different styles of Axiom wheels though. The wheels with flush center caps only fit on the rear and would need to be bored out to fit the front.

So you are saying that the flush mounter center cap Axiom wheels are not 108mm center hole?

Hey uncle rico can you post a picture of the kind of lug nuts that came on your rodeo, I have a set of factory center caps that I want to install on a factory set of 15" steel rims, but the lug nuts on my Trooper don't appear to be correct. The area where the lug nut seats on the center cap gets crushed when I tighten down the lug nut. I don't want to ruin these so I'd really appreciate it if you can post a picture. BTW your Rodeo looks sharp!

Kind of. The main hole is 108mm, but there is an extra ring about 1/4" thick and wide around the inside that prevents the wheels from fitting over the front hubs.

Thanks for that.
2002 they changed the hubs to the sealed bearings that don’t protrude with a “Hub Cap”.
I’ll get the ones like you have with the raised centers as mine is a 98.
