Billy's 5100's set @ 1 3/4, 1" rear blocks, Rear TSB, trimmed frt mud flaps 4", TRD Exhuast, K&N filter. Electric Brake.
    4 wheel parts recommended against me buying the dick cepek dc-1 in a 16x8. saying 9 times out of 10 most 16" after market wheels rub the brake caliper. Anyone run into this? There saying move up to the 17" which is cool, but another shop told me i cant use a 9" wide rim with my lift. And most wheels 17" are 9" wide. If they won't rub i'd get 10" wide. I have the bilstien 5100's all the way around with them set to 1 3/4" in front and 1" blocks in the rear. I am thinking for the tire 275/70/17 michellan LTX M/S. which is only 1 size bigger than stock 32x11.5 basicly.


    Thanks

    if you want the DC-1's, check out tirerack.com. They've got a killer sale on them right now! BTW I'm running some 17x9 wheels right now with no issue. you should have no problem with them as long as you get 4.5-5" backspacing on the 9's or 4-4.5" BS on a 8" wheel. Oh and tirerack also shows the 16" DC-1s as being a wheel that fits. :cool:

    I have the DC-1's and I have no trouble w/ them. If you want them buy them from dickcepek.com and click on "online garage sale" they have the polished DC1's and Chrome DC1's on sale big time. I got mine for 120 a piece and free shipping. I dont recommend 4wheelparts.
    Like I said no problems with mine
