Cepek DC-2 2013 Reg 4x4

Trying to figure out if I can make the Dick Cepek DC-2 wheels 16x8 - work on my new 2013 Reg Cab 4x4. I really like the wheels a lot and want to purchase them over any other, but am trying to not go for new tires or a lift right off the bat. Can my stock 245/75R16 work with the 16x8 ? Is there going to be a rubbing or spacing issue ? If so is there a simple fix ? Sorry if it's been answered, new poster, and new owner. Thanks Guys!

They will work fine. I have the same set on my truck, they look great, good stance, and they are badass looking.

I have 5 DC2 wheels with Michelin M&S2 tires for sale on the board. Package includes TPM sensors, lug nuts and Gorilla locks. I'm next door in Maryland.

Tonto - Saw your post for your wheel/tire combo. How old are the tires and wheels, how long did you run them? If I pull my stock wheels/tires off, and throw these on, you know of any rubbing issues on the Reg cab 4x4 ? Wheels look pretty good from the pics, any bad dings or anything I'm not seeing ? You also mentioned resetting the TPMS light ? I'm assuming I'd be making a road trip to Maryland?

i got some new tires, but i see no reason why it wouldnt work. I went from 265/75/16 to 265/70/16.

I dont see any problem but double check with someone else

There shouldn't be any rubbing issue. This calculator shows the difference between the 2 tire sizes: http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...foTireMath.jsp
