Same here, ordered on the 20th. UPS is showing that they haven't been picked up from the warehouse yet but hopefully that will change tomorrow.

Is there any difference in the face profile or concavity of the spokes between the 17x8+0 and 17x9-10 or is the extra width and offset all in the inner barrel and back of the hub?

I would guess that there is some concavity to the -10 wheels. I say that because on the chart in this thread the -10 weigh 1 pound more each.

Looking at my wheels I believe there is no change in the face of the wheel. The offset change happens at the wheel mounting surface. The -10 offset has less machined off the back and lug holes are drilled deeper. With the offsets being fairly close in dimension I would find it hard to believe there would different casts for the wheels. They still have to machine all the wheel mounting surfaces true so just adjust the offsets there.

You could remove almost an inch of material off the wheel mounting "lug" on the back of the wheel without getting into the meat of the wheel.

Anybody rocking the bronze on a speedway blue? I'm debating between bronze and gunmetal.

Sorry for digging up an old thread! I have a '12 DCLB TRD Sport with stock suspension. I just ordered some P265/75R16 Cooper Discoverer ATP from DTD for $444-$70rebate, so a great deal!

Here's my question.. I really like the gunmetal Level 8 MK6's that are offered in 16x8 but with the -10 offset, I'm nervous that these tires will rub on the flaps or something else? I want to make sure that there are no issues on/off road. If these won't work 100%, I don't want to spend that much money although they are a great deal. For anyone that has these size tires and wheels on stock suspension, what kind of issues do you have, if any, and do you think it's worth it?

Update: I bit the bullet and bought the gunmetal MK6 with 0 offset! After talking with a few Taco owners and some people at DTD, I don't think I'll have any problems. Only possible issue I foresee is rubbing on the front flaps (small/large ones) in reverse at full lock over a bump. If this happens, I'll just remove the flaps and call it a day. Here's the ones I purchased: http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...w=8&vid=021439
