    I had planned on getting 16x8 MotoMetal 955s and 285/75s. However, I just got off the phone with 4WheelParts and they told me that I would have to step up to 17x9 (4.53 backspace and -12mm offset) rims if I go aftermarket. Said the calipers will get in the way (specifically on the '09).

    I have heard about people having to grind the calipers, but I don't think they were talking about the '09s. I asked him about it and he said that there just isn't enough there to grind.

    Has anyone been able to get 16x8 on an '09?

    I was also thinking about stepping up to the 305/65s since I'm doing the 17x9.

    Thoughts? I'm lifting the front about 3 1/2" with total chaos UCAs.

    Jason,

    When looking at larger wheels, keep in mind that many of the all terrain tires you'll find in 16" are not available in 17" & 18" sizes. I ended up going with 18" wheels, as I had more tire choices for future swap outs.

    Thanks for the heads up. I hadn't thought of that. However, I'm looking at the ProComp XTerrain 305/65/17. 4wheelparts.com has a special on ProComps - buy three get one free. Also, they are willing to freight ship everything (wheels and tires) for $99.

    Also, my particular taste is more tire and less wheel. If I could do 15", I would. So, I'm not happy with having to move up to 17" - so I REALLY don't want to go up to 18"! Starts looking a little too bling for me. But that's just my taste...

    Gotcha Bro. I had the same concerns, but went with em' anyhow.
    Just one word of caution. I had an 04 F-250 4x4, and I put 315 XTerrains on it. That had to have been one of the biggest mistakes that I ever made. The cupped like crazy, and made so much noise that I couldn't even talk on my cell phone while driving. Heck, the powerstroke diesel engine was quieter than those things! They may have made improvements to them since I had em', but just be careful.

    Good to know - thanks! I like the whine of mud terrains, but I don't want it deafening...

    Might want to ask around here & see how others like them. The F-250 was probably twice (if not more) as heavy, so that may have had a bunch to do with it. I've just tried to warn as many people as possible of my experiance with them. They look SWEET, but I had hell with thier performance.

    how many miles did you get on them? Or did you even keep them that long? And is it ProComp in general or just the Xterrains?
