    I'm looking into getting the He791 aka Helo Black Maxx in 17x9 for my 2008 dcab. Looking into just gettting the wheels for now and running them on the stock 265/65/17 yokohamas. The wheel i'm looking at is the one with 4.53 BS and -12 mm offset. Would this wheel a) fit on the truck at all w/o problems? (other members on here run it) b) fit with the 265 tires? (tire rack says with these yokos the rec rim width is up to 9.5"?) and c) would i need spline drive lugs nuts, or could i just get away with the ET's?

    Also debating on the moto metal 951 (also 9 inch wide) or the Pro Comp 7089 which are 8 inches wide and don't seem like they'd cause a problem

    I went with a 17x9 and am still running my stock tires. I wish I would have gone with 17x8's though. As you can see in my sig pic it kinda balloons the tires out.

    ^^ ya i do see that but it still doesn't look bad. Just hard to find wheels in 17x8. What type of lugs did you use tho?
