    OK... So I'm thinking about getting these. Obviously I know to get the 6x5.5 bolt pattern, but will these fit my stock truck w/o any modifications? Once I get them, I plan to put on a set of General Grabber AT2s (265/70/R16 - same size as stock)

    Sorry... I'm a wheel idiot. Thanks in advance.

    wat?
    the wheels will fit, the issue is tire size. if ur keeping the stock OR tires, then ur definately good. good luck finding them though....KMC is supposedly stopping making them. i looked for them for a month or so

    Thank you both. How do these (or any after-market rims) work w/ the TPMS our trucks have?

    If you decide to not install the TPMS sensors in the new wheels can you turn that light off so the light on the dash dont stay lit up. I plan on running nitrogen anyway so I dont need a light to tell me if its low.

    Nitrogen is thicker molecules than air thus it doesnt leak as does air. Air has water vapor in it so moisture can build up causing rot. Nitrogen does not. My local dealer uses it in all their cars.

    I read it off a flyer at the dealership, who really knows if its for real or not. They may have just been trying to sell me nitrogen filled tires. Nascar tires all run nitrogen though.

    What do you grind the brake caliper with to fit the Enduros?

    Per his post above...

    You can get one at Home Depot. Type in "flap wheel" in Google images to know what you're looking for.

    Mine fit fine without rubbing but I have a 09 so I am not sure about your truck. Thats the ebayer who I got my enduros from. After you order he might contact you that he doesnt have them and offer you different rims or give you the wait till he can find some option. I chose to wait. He told me it could take a few weeks but called me the next day to tell me they were located and shipped. I was very pleased with this ebay seller. good luck.

    I contacted him and he said that he had rims the right size for my truck in stock. I think it's probably better to make contact before you send the money.
