    So I found a set of Granite GA9 15x10 Alloy wheels with 33x12.50r15 Yokohama M/T tires (little over 1/3 tread).... they're asking $450 for the set, but he says he's willing to work a little on the price... good deal?

    Also will this cause rubbing, trimming, etc.... with a 2.5" lift and stock UCA's?

    Thanks in advance for the help....

    My assumption is rub, but you can always cut away until they fit.

    Yeah I bet they'd rub, but if those are the exact wheels you want I think thats a good deal, if you're just settling for them I'd say $400.

    Judging by the backspacing and tire width, they probably won't fit without 3+ inches of lift. I know even these 32's I have on mine now rubbed back when I had 2.5 inches of lift.

    Yea... I wasn't sure if they would with the 2.5" or if I'd have to have a full 3"... I know JLee is running these wheels with the same size tire but he has a full 3"... oh well I guess I'll just keep looking for a deal!

    right Jlee is running em as well as a few others. Id take the deal. Okayish tires and good rims. If you could get tem for less definitely do it. the backspacing should be right so you don't have to run spacers. You will have to most likely trim a bit more then ppl with 3'' but whatever. no big deal.

    If you don't wheel you wont have to trim too much but as soon as you get off road you will see its time to cut away. Its a good deal if the tires are good the rims are 400 new.

    Yea... I've talked with the guy and I'm going to meet him later today or tomorrow to give it a look over... I figured if I get the set for $400 and they don't fit, I can pull the tires and get $75-$100 for them (at least) and I get a nice set of wheels for around $300
