OK, I'll be the first to comment. I'd run them. The hub holes look small. Looks like what I beat the heck out of when I was a kid. Now I run 22" sand tires LOL......... But yes, for the price, I would use them.

And 3.5"? Maybe 90mm or so? I think those rims will be metric which is common. What is the hub dia. requirement?

Who cares what the hole pattern IS? The question is how accurate are you with a drill? The center of those rims are just flat steel, and the bolt holes are not beveled. Drill a new set offset 45 from the oddball holes and run the snot out of em. I'd buy 20 of em if they were near me.

BUY BUY BUY, you fool!

Classic go kart/mini bike tire size there, in the larger 6" size. Not sure right off if the bolt spacing fits anything common but...

I think my Baja has QING DA tires, so they're just regular tires, nothing spectacular.

I'm out of the loop on current pricing, but is the tire itself a deal compared to the ol' standby Cheng Shin also in 4.10/3.50-6?

$10, no shipping. Yep, a sweet deal.

Hey, Fool. Did you buy some of them there wheels?

Good deal, great deal, but maybe not spectacular. $5 would be, though.

Well, they're still listed. Tell them that if they will take $5 each, you will take all of them and bring back the rims........ . Or maybe $7 each. I like to buy buy buy in quantity myself. Did you make a move on them yet??
