    Finally got my Fedex tracking numbers today for my new wheels and tires

    I was gonna get the Element American Racing Wheels. But then I changed my mind when the guy at JKwheels sent me a photo of these new Fuel Offroad Hostage wheels that just hit the market

    When he gave me tracking numbers today, He told me I'm gonna be the first one to have a set of these wheels:D

    Not sure how true that is but I'm really stoked about receiving them

    They are 18 x 9 5.5 BS With +12 offset

    Fuel Off-Road Hostage - Black with Machined Face
    (New Style Hostage Wheel from MHT)

    I think there gonna look sweet on my 05 Silver Tacoma TRD Sport along with the Falken Ziex Tires

    I can't tell you the exact price because of a special deal they cut me...

    But I can tell you it was under $1,300 shipped to my door

    Wheels,Tires Mount & Balance Shipping And free Hardware Installation kit

    They have good prices because they deal directly with the manufacture and can pass the savings onto their customers

    I think I got a really good deal:D

    Looks like they will arrive on Tuesday:taco:

    I bought the wheels and tires from www.jkwheels.com

    If you go to their website they have Wheels starting at $75.00 each

    Just click on cheap wheels on the header of their homepage

    If you want a deal on tires also and want them to mount and balance them

    Call them on the phone and ask for Jeff or Jr. and make sure to tell them
    Ernie sent you

    I will post pics Wednesday and let you know how they did with the mount and balance

    My wheels and tires showed up today...

    I gotta start by saying, Hats of to Jr. and the guys in the shop at www.jkwheels .com (Inland Wheel Center) in California

    Excellent job on the mount,balance,Packaging and shipping

    They even sent me a set of wheel locks and the tool as promised at no extra cost

    The package rides nice on my 05 Pre-Runner. I do notice a little tire noise from the Falken Zeix between 20-30 MPH but very quiet at high speeds

    Question for you guys...

    When my wheels shipped the tire pressure was set at 40 psi

    Max pressure is 40 psi

    How long do I have to drive on them/seat them before I can lower the tire pressure?

    I think I'm gonna run them around 33-35 psi, but gonna do the chalk test also

    Just wanted to find out how many miles I should drive on them before I lower the tire pressure:confused:

    Thanks for any info...

    His link is in post# 7

    His name is Jr. from www.jkwheels.com

    He's the manager of Inland Wheel Center

    The price is unbeatable:D

    They deal directly with the wheel manufactures, so they can pass the saving onto the customer

    He told me i'm the first one to have this new style
    Hostage Wheel from MHT

    I just wish it was daytime so I can go outside and stare at them some more:D
