dick cepek wheel questions

I was looking at getting a set of 16x8 dc-1 polished wheels for my 08 D cab and was wondering if you can use the stock lugnuts on those wheels and what is the backspacing and offset of the wheels. The last thing I want is to order the wrong wheels. And will the stock TPMS sensors work in the wheels. Another thing where did yall oreder yours from and how much were they. Thanks for all the help yall.

Stock lugs no.
Contact DC to find out back-spacing. You will want between 4 1/2 - 5" of backspacing.
As for the TPMS sensors, if you have the Toyota factory aluminum wheels now, the sensors will transfer over to the DC's. If you have steelies, the sensors will not transfer over, as the angle of the valve stems is different and thus won't fit.

Regarding price, search online, find a cheap price, then go to your local Discount Tire or equivalent and have them order the rims/tires for you. Most tires stores will do a very good job of price-matching.

Did you end up picking up the dc-1's? If so what size wheel and tire combo are you running? I'm looking to do the same and didnt have plans to go with a lift.
