    Hope I don't get blasted for this one... I've looked around, but with such a big purchase, I'd feel better knowing for sure. I have a 2009 DC Sport 4x4. I want the Moto Metal 951's. Are these the right ones for my truck?
    Also, Is $560 shipped a good price for a set of 4 rims?

    Thanks,

    Product Name: Moto Metal 951 17x9 6/5.5 Product ID: MO9517960312 Finish: Black Painted WheelsManufacturer: Moto Metal Description: Moto Metal 951 one-piece black aluminum custom wheels with machined accents. -12mm Offset, and 4.5" Backspace.

    That'a about the price I paid for 16 inch. I got the 1" offset which sometimes rubbed before the leveling kit.

    FYI, I also had to buy new lug nuts from discount auto. The socket for the OEM lugs would not fit the holes in the rims to tighten them. I get alot of :thumbsup: with these rims.

    Thanks Guys

    So the 4.5" BS / -12mm offset / 6x5.5 is correct?

    I forgot to mention I have a 3" lift, and will be mounting 285/70/17's on the Moto's.

    I also am running spidertrax, but not sure if I'll keep them or not. I suppose it depends how it looks and if I have any rubbing.

    you shouldn't need the spidertrax with the correct backspacing

    And 4.5" would be the correct size?

    I might leave them if it looks good... If it looks too wide, I'll dump them.

    Your wheel data is correct. I just checked my receipt. My rims are 16x9 (1 inch offset) and they don't stick out too far. The tread is about even with the fenders, and the sidewalls are out maybe 1 inch more. Looks stout!

    Ok, I'm planning to get the black 951s, but now I'm more confused than ever. Black Taco said he has the 16x9 951s, which rubbed before the leveling kit. Sorry for not knowing, but what is the leveling kit, and will I need it with a stock setup using the 951's?
    I also read somewhere that the 16x8's would rub on the front caliper, so that's why I was all set to get the 16x9's, until I read that Black Taco's rubbed with those also. :confused:
    Last question: Do the TPMS work with these? I've seen the question posted here, but no answers.

    Thanks!!
