    Just got some Moto Metal 957s and Nitto TGs delivered to the house! Gonna go visit my buddy at a local shop to mount and balance em today. They are 17x9s and 265/70/17s goin on a stock suspension so I am sure many of you will be interested to hear about any fitment issues.

    I have been doing a lot of research on this and I know the 265/70/17s should fit aftermarket wheels with 4.5BS with no issues but unsure about the 17x9s (the tires are recommended for 9").

    Either way they look good sittin here and should look even better on the truck!...just don't want to fork out the cash for a lift right now it's a brand new truck!

    Posted some pics more pics/info. to come

    I have posted three images. What do you guys think? There was rubbing on the front mud flaps so I trimmed them a bit and used zip ties to tie them back. No more rub there but I am still getting some rub in reverse when the wheels are fully locked left...gonna check out where that is over the next couple of days. So...if you want to put 17x9s on 265/70/17s with a stock suspension be ready to do some trimming...so far for me it was minimal.

    Love 'em brother. They look great. You are ready for NE Christmas weather (Brady looked pretty solid last weekend BTW). Where did you take the pics? With regard to the rubbing, hopefully it is on something plastic that can be fixed with a snip or repositioning. I tried to look at mine for a guess, but it is tough to visualize.

    Took em out on 67 headed into Statesboro...lots of cotton out there right now. Hope the DC area is treatin you right. Brady has been lookin good plus they have a pretty cush schedule heading into the post season they should be good to go with home field advantage. Thanks for the heads up on the plugs and the website those are going to be money savers! PM me with anything else you find of interest and I'll do the same. If you ever want to upgrade wheels/tires I found out a couple of things in my research:

    Amazon runs good deals on wheels

    The dealership here in Savannah runs good deals on tires and pretty good on wheels and you could probably negotiate a free/cheap mount and balance (wonder if your dealer does the same)

    Mescalero runs group buys for good deals and even does individual buys if you PM him...free shipping good customer service and good prices
