    The wheels I found on ebay, they are in like new shape and are the limited darker gray color. The centercaps I got for wholesale price at my dealer. I put on old man emu 883's and OME shocks up front no spacer (got 1.75" of lift). And the rear 1" blocks that I havent put on yet I am buying from a friend for 40 bucks.

    I got the tires at a local tire shop (seredni tire) they were a lil higher than ordering online but they mounted and balanced for free and I get free rotations and balances for as long as I have the tires and whenever I want. I paid 259 each for the tires. The total at the tire shop for tires, alignment, and tax was $1,197. They are pretty quiet and I dunno about the wear yet. They are a lil heavy but that was expected, however they balanced out nicely. my truck wanders a little at high speeds (over 60mph) but really overall no complaints. Im happy with them, I reccomend them. The pic does no justice, in person they look way better and bigger

    Thanks, yeah the tires look so agressive. I love em'.

    Anyone that is wondering about the tires, they are 265/70/17 and measure 31.98 x 11.02 and weigh 61lbs each. To compare bfg km2's weigh like 55lbs or something, and duratracs around 45lbs, I dont remember exactly. So they are pretty heavy but I really like them reguardless.

    That looks really good. I was looking for those wheels for my truck and gave up. Every time I found them, they were more $ than after market wheels.

    Those look great! I think I might like them even more than the FJ SE wheels.

    I just put on the 1" blocks in the rear last night. The above pics show the truck without them on, it sits better now. The 1" blocks were just enough to make it have more of an agressive stance
