    I'm trying to decide on level 8 guardians or Vtec raptors any pics would help. i am just concerned that would look funny with the 265/75/16 duratracs I am going to mount them on because they are a 8.5' wide tire and I don't want them to look stretched or a bit rounded.

    What size tires are you running? My wheels are 8" wide and I'm running 265/70's. If I recall, and I could be wrong, they told me I could run up to and 8 1/2". Send a pm to the Discount Tire online guy. He can tell you. Good luck.

    I just hate those stupid center caps on the guardians... They would be on my list if it wasn't for those.

    Guardians look alot better without them I'm also looking at the procomp 7032. I was more concerned with the look of the 8.5 width I know they will fit.

    There's a thread here somewhere that provides the part number for a center cap for the level 8's that isn't as tall as the stock one. I believe the poster said the Discount Tire guy switched them out for him at no cost...just a thought.
