    Grillcraft, Rear leaf TSB, 5100's at .85, with Eibachs, 265/70/17 BF Goodrich AT/S Tires, Hella 500's behind Grill, Kenwood KDC X995 H/U all Boston Acoustic speakers, JL Audio subs, Kenwood XR5 S amp, ATX Chrome 17x8 wheels
    So I had me 17x8 Chrome ATX Ledge installed today. Dropped the truck off, and had to go back 2 hours later because they said they could not be mounted. The machine they use to put a tire on the rim, would have ripped the fake bolts right off the rim. I had to go back to the place, and without scratching the wheels. Use tools to pry out the little fake bolts. If anyone else has these wheels did the fake plastic bolts come separate, or in the wheels. 1 of the fake plastic bolt head snapped off.

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    on wheels with the fake bead locks, we just flip the wheel upside down on the mount machine and mount the tire that way... never had a problem before...

    of course, when i had to get a flat tire serviced at America's Tire, i had to explain to them to flip the wheel around... of all the guys in the shop, only the manager knew what i was talking about and showed the guys how to do it...
