Talking Ordered some new wheels, lift and tires today!

I am pretty excited to get the wheels here. They are Ballistic Havoc 17" wheels that I got on EBAY for $530. http://www.ebay.com/itm/17x9-Black-B...55324113054846

I am getting a Tough Country 3" in fron and 2" rear lift through Les Schwab and going to show it with 265/70R17's from Les Schwab as well. Never had this truck lifted and I am anxious to see the difference in both look and feel.

Make sure the 265s are approved for use on 9" wide rims.

It's going to feel a lot more rough with that spacer lift in there.

All depends how much you are willing to cut. People have fit 33x12.5s on 3" of lift. Some even run 35s

You're in Northern Nevada? Reno? I sell those same wheels for $440. I also am against the spacer lift. Given you are in the area I know a few shops that could do a better setup probably at a similar price. PM me if you want any info.

You own a shop with these wheels? How do you think they would look on MAG Gray?

Well I got it all put together yesterday. I used the 3in front and 2.5 rear susspension lift and shoed it with 285/70/R17's on the 17x9 Ballistic Havoc wheels. It looks very good and even sick if I do say so myself. rubbing is minimal but i see where its rubbing and will be very easy to cut. I will post more pics tomorrow in the daylight.

Do you have these wheels available in a 16" with 6x5.5 pattern?
