Default What’s wheel is on a 87fc35

I just had my front tires replaced and the installer did a lousy job. He somehow scratched both front wheels and dented the baby moon. I’m getting the shop to buy me new wheels. Does anyone know the part number for a new Accuride steer. The current ones have the Firestone logo stamped into them, I’m pretty sure they are original. I’d like to have the same quality rim that was on there, is the Accuride the one to go with or the Alcoa.
Stud or hub piloted ?

Choice is about the same. Your wheels are Stud piloted.

Default You could check with the tire shop, thinking 9 inch wheels.

Hi, if you go with 9 inch wheels, it is a normal size for 315/80-22.5.
I have 315 tires on my 8.25 Firestone wheels on the 87 FC.
Run 90 psi, tires have higher load limits than stock tires, not stressed as much, softer ride.
Good luck with your FC.

Thanks Rick and Dude. Already got the 12r22.5 tires so I don’t think I can go up to a 9inch rim.
