    I dont think 4 wheel parts owns them.... I could be wrong though. But I havent seen anything about 4wp when Methods first came out at off road shows and when showing them off at races.

    After staring at your truck in amazement on how FREAKIN awesome those wheels are, I think I am convinced these are going to be my next wheels.... Whats your tire size? And you think if would work with just leveling the truck? It seems like you have a 3in lift?

    Funny how im getting general a/t's too!

    I thought KMC owned Method though? I am not 100% on that... And you could be right... I know 4wp ownes pro comp... And yea I wouldnt buy from them either. They jack up the prices sky high.

    Thanks!

    I'm currently running OME 885 springs and the top plate spacer, so yeah about 3" lift. My tire size is 285/75/16 (33's). If you were to get 5100s to level it, you could probably pull it off with 265/75/16 tires (31's) with minimal rubbing.

    The AT2's are fucking awesome too. So much better than my old Terra Grapplers, in terms of traction, feel, sound, and wear.

    Hows the ride quality with the 3in lift? now is that equivalent with leveling the truck then lifting it 3in? not sure how they gauge it. Im looking to get as big as I can in tire size without sending the truck sky high... I think 3in is the highest I would ever go.

    Ride quality's awesome. I'm running the OME shocks too. If you were to do a 3 inch lift, your truck would probably come out looking about the same as mine. 3in is perfect cuz I can still fit in just about every parking garage. 265's are arguably cheaper though. I wouldn't do a 265 tire on a 3in lift, and I wouldn't do a 285 tire on a leveling kit. Gotta have one go with the other.
