    I payed $635 shipped for the Fuel Hostage. They were 151 a rim i believe plus shipping. I looked forever before i could make my mind up. I was first going to go with the ballistic jesters but they were out of stock and i didn't really want to wait that long before getting them. I got these from www.eliteswheels.com that was the best price i could find shipped within about $35+ dollars of anyone else.

    I'm probably about 2-2 1/2 hours from Etown i'd say.. If i didn't have to have a coil compressor to put the Coils on i would probably hit ya up on that offer.. Unless you have one just laying around! then i'll be right up! lol

    I trimmed 7" off the front ones.. I'm thinking about trimming a few inches off the back as well. I'd like to keep the scratches down as much as i can, but removing them does look better.

    I've heard the rent ones are scary dangerous to use, simply because of that reason. I'll go check out your build thread.

    I saw one first hand come out of a compressor! Luckily it did not hurt anyone I told the guy 5 times he wasn't doing it right (worked at a shop).


    I walked across the shop and watched him do it and then BAM it was gone!


    Scary shit!!!

    Brought this wreck back from the dead, killed it, then revived it, still going strong.
    Oh man, I remember when I tried the rented coil compressors, never again! My roommate was a little ambitious about it. After I tried (and failed to get them to compress) he thought could help me so he jumped on top of the spring with his impact wrench just going to town on it. When I noticed what he was doing I told him to stop. If the spring compressor would have broke (I could see the large 3/4 dia screw starting to bend) he would have been dead for sure! I ended up just taking them to a local shop and they took care of it for free, go figure...

    Anyways I am about to put some 265/70/17 under my truck and I read in other threads that there is no problem with them rubbing. I don't have mud flaps installed, but I was hoping to maybe get some input from you since you just had yours put on. Do you have a stock suspension? Are you trimming your mudflaps because the tires are too big? Do they rub on the inner plastic fender?

    Thanks!
