Helo Maxx 6 Wheel

After searching through a lot of sites, pics, and forum posts... I decided to go with the Helo HE791 Maxx 6 black wheels for my next addition.

I saw that several members on here have them... how do you like them? Any issues with caliper or fender rubbing? I'm thinking of going with the 16" diameter, 4.5" bs. I know a lot of people prefer the 17 inchers, but I want to avoid the extra charge of changing the spare and avoid issues with larger tire rubbing.

Does anyone have the 16" Maxx 6's? Is there any issue with them rubbing in that diameter?

I have no rubbing on my first gen. I know that doesn't help you as you have a second gen. What I originally commented to say was that I have the chrome version and the chrome is coming off. I found it when I was washing my truck. Bronze/copper spots are coming through and you can see where it looks like the chrome is just flaking off. It's rough to the touch too. I know you said you were getting black but it might be something to look into a little more.

Thanks! That's good to know. How long have you had them before you started noticing the flaking?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

What type of lugnut do they require? did yours come with an adapter for fitting the hub?

Same ones I want

I say these on Ebay for as little as $113 ea with free shipping for the 16 in. My question, 16 Vs 17in? The 16's are 8in wide and the 17's are 9in wide. I really love the looks of them and they would look great on my 08 speedway blue double cab. which would be best. Also take into account price of tires? an other question, can I use the existing tire pressure sensors on the new rims?

I got mine for $119 w/ free shipping from 4 wheel parts. The diameter size depends on your preference, though many choose to get the 17" rims because many 16 inchers may not clear the brake caliper.

I put one on my truck today (to check fit) and it fit on there fine with no caliper rubbing that I was aware of. Still have yet to get the tires!
