    Picked up a set of Level 8 Gaurdians from Discount tire. They are 17x8.5 4.5". Wanted 16" but they are on backorder. The guy at the shop said I got the last set of 17" in the warehouse. I also found a good deal on a set of 285/70/17 Toyo Open Country AT's. Heading out to Ocotillo wells this weekend to try them out.

    Hey Eric, thanks for the pics! That is exactly what I was looking for!

    I sent you a PM, I guess it didn't go through. I'll try to resend it.

    +1 for you

    What is your backspacing/offset? On discount tire it looks like the options are -6 or 18. Am I looking at the right number?

    Edit: Nevermind, I looked through the other Level 8 thread and found my answer. You have the -6 offset making it a 4.5" backspacing giving it a wider stance compared to stock.

    Mine are the -6 offset which are 4.5" backspacing. The 18 offset are stock 5.5" backspacing.

    You may want to stop by one of our local stores in Tuscon and see what they can do for you on trading them in.

    OP,

    I just picked up my Guardians and they look great!

    Do you have any rubbing with your 285's? I have some, I might have to chop the cab mount. Anyone else having this problem? I have my coilovers set at about 2" of lift. Maybe I can just crank them up a bit?

    Thanks!
