    does anyone have experience with the MB Wheels TKO's
    I found a set that i want to buy but I don't want to order them and find out they don't work.

    my truck is a 2009 reg cab 4x2 4 cyl. with stock 215/70r15's (5 on 4.5).

    the rep said it is an aggressive fit (which scares me) but they should work???

    i want to pull the trigger but need to be confident they will work on my truck with no mods.

    plan on switching tire to a 235/75r15 or 235/70r15 if 75 is too big.

    any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    I have MB Wheels Razors. When I had them installed the wheels were already sticking out by an inch, without the tires being on there, so I guess that's what they probably mean.

    The biggest tire without needing a lift is 235/75/15's but you might want to tone it down to 235/70's or even 225/75/15. I don't know the actually size of the TKO's so I can't tell you for sure. If you want you can check the other 5 lug builds and post to get an idea of how big they are.

    No problems with my MB TKO's - just get the alternative wheel cap. I also didn't go with oversize tires either.

    thanks for the replies guys. LOL!
    I did go with the TKO's and they fit perfect.
    you were right just a little bit of a rub at full lock and in reverse with 235/75/15's but not a big deal at all. That being said my next project will be the black box (cut out). this way no rub and I can run 30's if I want [​IMG] .

    I am very happy with the TKO's minus the the huge (gaudy) plastic center piece of course.
