    I'm stuck between the Guardian and the Black Rhino Keyhole. Love them both. Thinking the Guardian in bronze would look pretty nice on BSP truck. I should have this figured out in another 3-4 weeks. Lol.

    We list the offset in the size description so you can convert it into backspace. Hopefully we'll be adding backspace to our site soon.

    The 16x8.5 ET-6 Strike 6 has 4.5" of backspace and the 17x9 ET-12 also has 4.5" of backspace. The Strike 6 in the 6-139.7 bolt pattern is not procuded in size 16x8 or 17x8.

    Check out this write-up we did on offset and backspace.

    thinking about getting the guardians myself in the next week or two.


    Discount tire: is it confirmed the guardians clear the brake calipers with a 16" wheel? i know the site says they do, but you know how that can go...

    The 16x8.5 Guardian is a guaranteed fit for your application :cool: We've sold this size on many Tacomas without any brake clearance issues.

    I have the guardians and love them. The only thing I didn't like was the hub covers so I am running without them

    I'm not sure if I mentioned this before on some of the other thread threads regarding this wheel but the Guardian comes standard with 55mm caps. Level 8 does offer a 35mm cap for only $13.00 per wheel if your interested.

    Unlike some of our competitors, we do not inflate our prices just to offer a discount to a select group. Instead we guarantee the lowest out the door price on all the products we carry for everyone. if a competitor ever has a cheaper advertised out the door price, we'll beat it :cool:

    Are the Level 8 Tracker wheels lugcentric or hubcentric? If they are lugcentric do they need to be roadforced balanced.? How much more will these wheels stick out compared to the stock wheels.Also which lugnuts work best for this wheel.. any problem balancing these wheels ?
    Thank you for your help

    Just placed a order thought direct tire discount . I called to double everything would fit my truck . The guy I spoke with was very nice and willing to answer any questions I had . I wasn't calling to order but he put me on hold "2 minutes" came back and offered me the package at $350 below the Internet price . Great deal I couldn't pass on it . Can't wait for UPS to come next week !

    If your going to order make sure you call and talk about the price most likely they can come down on it .
