Aftermarket wheel setup. . .advice needed

I am seriously considering getting some new wheels. I currently have my oe wheels shaker canned black (they turned out quite well). However, the truck has a small lift, 3" and a fiberglass cap so it just looks tall and skinny to me. I would like the truck to have a slightly wider stance. I want to stay with black and I really like the Motometal Series M0957 (link at bottom of post).

Here are my concerns. . .

-Is a 9" wide rim too wide for my 265-70-17 General Grabbers?
-Is the backspacing and offset going to look "good"? I don't want coffee cans sticking out, just a wider than stock look
-I see they are not hub centric, will that be an issue especially on a truck?
-Does the price seem right, seems fair to me especially with the free ups shipping.
-Can I swap the tmps sensors over to these rims?

Thanks for your help!!

Hey, hopefully I can help you out a little bit.


-Is a 9" wide rim too wide for my 265-70-17 General Grabbers?
No.

-Is the backspacing and offset going to look "good"? I don't want coffee cans sticking out, just a wider than stock look
What looks good to me, may not look good to you. They will stick out past the fender, however you won't look like an old school lowrider.

-I see they are not hub centric, will that be an issue especially on a truck?
It is ideal for a wheel to be hubcentric, but it is possible to get a good ride out of them if they are put on and balanced correctly.

-Does the price seem right, seems fair to me especially with the free ups shipping.
Seems about right to me.

-Can I swap the tmps sensors over to these rims?
If you have alloy wheels you can swap the tpms sensors over. If you have steel wheels you can not.


Hope this helps a little.
