    Pretty settled on these for my magnetic gray access cab, but just want to make sure there's not going to be in fitment trouble. Will I have to trim anything or should I be fine? I'm running a 265/75/16 tire also. These wheels are 16x8 with 4" BS and -12 Offset. Also, I think they'll stick out about 2.5" further than the stock SR5 wheels but since there's probably an inch or more from the outside of the wheel/tire to the edge of the wheel well these should only stick out MAYBE an inch or so right?

    there are some members here that are runnin those rims. not sure what the tire size is they have though. yes they will stick out . i have a -6 offset wheel with 4.25 backspace and the stock 245 75 16 tires on and the wide wall of the tire sticks out past the wheel well.

    Did you ever get these wheels? How did they work out for you?

    Yes I did, and they work GREAT...they give the truck a really aggressive stance and don't stick out much at all so you don't have to worry about throwing rocks back on your truck

    I was looking at these wheels as well. But was thinking about may the 255/85/16's or maybe the 255/80/17's. How close to the UCA's does this wheel put your tire size? Do you think a taller tire would fit in there?

    Balancing issues are usually because of the tires, not the rims.

    I was on the phone with Tire Rack the other day trying to pick up some of the DC-2's in the 17x9 size and some BFG KM2's in the 255/80R17 and the guy told me that those tires would not fit on the DC-2's?

    Was he smoking crack or just some flunky who worked the phone lines with no idea? Or will it really not fit. Thanks.

    A 9" wheel is waaaaay to wide to run 255s on.

    Why not get some 16x8s and run 255/85/16? Or can you get the dcs in 17x8?

    Yeah I actually went with that size at first and have a pending order with 4WheelParts, but it looks like I am going to be waiting at least 2-3 weeks before they get them in, and that's through 4WheelParts.

    Tire Rack told me that I would have to wait at least 8-10 weeks before they got them in stock. Anyway, the shipping was half the price through 4Wheel.

    I am just waiting ang waiting for my new wheels and tires. Wanna dress this girl up now that I got my lift on. :p
