    Just had my wheels put on today. I think they look great! Details:
    TRUCK-2009 DCSB TRD Sport MGM
    SUSPENSION-5100's all around, 1.75" up front and tsb leafs in the rear
    RIMS-ATX Artillery (teflon coated) "black" 17x9 -12 offset 6 on 5.5
    TIRES-265/70/17 BFG TA KO

    Light rubbing on LCA before the rims were installed which is now gone, however, I now have a slight rub on the front wheel well at almost full turn. Not too bad though, just some minor trimming required. And yes, the factory TPMS fit right in with no problems.

    QUESTIONS:
    -Anyone else running these wheels have problems fitting your center caps? The caps that came with the wheels don't fit the hub, they are too small. Should I just rattle can the hub black and run without the center cap as shown, or get the right caps and install them?
    -They only had chrome lugs in stock, but I ha them order black lugs which will be in next week... question is: since these wheels have chrome "bolts" around them, should I just leave the lugs chrome since they match the decorative bolts as well as the tpms sensors? Even though chrome is disgusting :puke:

    Thanks for the input!
    These wheels are almost a perfect match to the MGM paint even though they are considered "black" wheels.

    So I have steering wheel wobble between 45-70mph. Looks like I'll be going back tomorrow to rebalance :mad:

    Nice choice. I liked them too. I had no problems with the center cap. I'm planning to leave my lug nuts chrome. I never thought about switching them to black, but then again the chrome doesn't bother me either because of exactly what you mentioned... the outside fake chrome pieces.

    Are the wheels hub centric? If not, you may need some hub centering rings...

    They are not hub centric. I have them on mine and have no ring on it. Because the center caps are on from the inside, they'll interfere with the ring.

    What do you mean they'll interface with the ring?? So I do need an adapter or no?

    At the moment my center caps are not on because they did not fit right. I'm not sure why but they seemed too tight. I'll try again tomorrow. So what should I do then?

    Yeah I'm starting to like it a lot. When I first opened the box and saw how light colored the rims were I was pretty disappointed at first, but they are growing on me quickly. Its amazing how much different the truck becomes with just wheels. I'd say probably the best "mod" for esthetics.

    So can anyone clarify this hub/lug centric issue ans the wobble.... should I get rebalanced or do I need something else to help me.... and are the center caps related to my problem? Thanks!

    Wobble? = balancing issue.

    The center cap slides in from the inside. Because of that, the edge of the center cap on the inside of the rim would interfere with the ring you would want to use because it would have to sit on top of it.

    If the cap is too tight, have them send you new ones and return those. That's my only suggestion. It looks like you bought them or had them installed at Dsicount Tire? They should be able to take care of you there. If not, talk to the manager now before you start putting on miles on them.
