Thank you for the information! Appreciate it!

Exactly what I was hoping to see too. I love the dark bonze color wheels on gray, but the pictures I see on the website is a really bright bronze.

avw4x4, your truck looks great! Stance is perfect. Whats your wheel and tire sizes? I'm assuming you have the negative offset because the wheels are sticking out a bit...

Hey thank you, same deal as mh3kgt. 16's with a -10 offset and 285/75/16 Hankook dynapro mt's, was looking for duratracs originally but they're all on back order now. In retrospect I'm glad they were because these hankooks are pretty awesome, hope they wear alright!

Those do look awesome!

I'm looking to get the same for my truck. Do they rub at all? Have you had to trim? Looks like 265/75/16 Duratracs?

Thanks

No rubbing. I'm actually on factory size. 245/75-16

Love them so far. Balanced better than my Toyota wheels ever did.

Most likely 0 or slightly negative if you want them to stick out a bit more. May have some very minor trimming to do.

So I just got back from my local Discount Tire in Burlington Washington and have a bit of a story.

I have been looking at wheels for a long time and finally decided on the Level 8 MK6 with 0 offset in Bronze. Got them ordered earlier this week with a set of tires and eagerly awaited the call that they were ready. Got that call today and made the 45 minute drive out of the sticks and into civilization. Arrived right on time, double checked all the info, paid the bill and handed over the keys. After a while they pulled it in and got to work. About 30 minutes later one of the guys calls me over and gives me some interesting information. He says that for some reason the bore hole in the wheel will not fit on my truck. They double checked the box, double checked their ordering system, all came back as 106mm. They apologized, gave me back the truck and said they will call Monday to see whats up.

Does anyone have any idea if that is even possible? Bad batch of wheels? Uninformed staff? I am not really mad, just bummed I can't get my wheels and tires installed, especially after dropping that much money and time on them.

Any insight would be great. Thanks.

Haven't heard of this issue Nate. I ordered mine online and they mounted up no problem and I was told they were hubcentric. Sounds like they were mislabeled in packaging or the machining process was off....

Got a phone call earlier that they had contacted the manufacturer and were told that due to the tolerance of the bore being so close that the paint can cause that to happen. The DT guy said they would clean up the bore paint and I scheduled to go down this evening after work. Will post up pics when its all said and done. Hopefully it goes better this time.

Well good news. That was the fix. Got them installed with a set of 265/75/16 KM2s. Extremely pleased so far.

Guess I never even said how pleased I was with discount tire, when I bought my wheels and tires I received them in like 2 days which was incredible. Also today I just found out I lost my lugnut key and they'll have 2 shipped to me in 2 days! Excellent customer service at discount tire!
