Help Identifying this Rim

Folks, does anybody know where I can find a rim like this?

I had a set of 4 on a project 79 CJ5 i am doing for a guy and after powdercoating and mounting the tires it was discovered that one was bent beyond repair. I need 1, but would take 2 or even 4 if the price is right. Appreciate the help!

hmm... interesting dilemma you've found. I checked Black Rock and Pro Comp and they're all 8 hole as well. (the D-Window wheels get up to 10 holes... but the round hole ones max out at 8).

I'm interested to see what you find out.

Did you ask this question here before? I specifically remember looking for this exact type of wheel (10 hole) before for someone here.

They do make a 10 hole version, but it doesn't have the 'soft' edge like yours

You say yours is bent; if you really want to keep it, a company like Stockton wheel or such should be able to fix it. Not a wheel shop, but a wheel repair shop

Quick question; how wide are your current wheels; and how wide is the eBay one?

Further research definitely looks like the 10 hole wheel is what Sammi's had, I also thought they were pretty narrow (like 5-6"?)

They do seem pretty narrow but not 5-6". I mounted 31x10.5x15s on them without issue.

I have quickly gone through and educated myself haha. You are absolutely right Joonhoss they are 5.5" wide which is also the width of the ebay rim. I apparently had the shop mount the 31x10.5R15 tires on them without thinking if that might be an issue. After some research i see that it is doable....probably frowned upon....but doable.

No worries, just wanted to make sure you are getting what you needed.

Being that they are all that size, you may want to do a chalk test to figure out the right inflation on them, because in all likelihood they will possibly crown a bit and wear out the centers at 'standard' psi.
