    Nice. Been debating stock rims with skinny tires or going aftermarket so I can use a "normal" width tire.

    Is there a chart anywhere that correlates backspacing/offset on a rim, with lift height and tire size? Wondering with 2" of lift up front and Light Racing UCA's, how big of a tire can I go without rubbing the cab mount?

    I really wish I had pulled the trigger on these when I ordered my falkens from y’all last week! That gunmetal would look slick on my truck

    Wait, where did you get the color matched TRD center cap?

    I bought locally. Really would love color matched center caps (matte gunmetal) with black TRD

    None whatsoever... I suspect the decals won't last though. We'll see.

    Does one need to take of the center caps to remove the 8? If so, how TF do they come off LOL

    I haven't seen a chart like that, but if you want to avoid rubbing the cab mount the 0 offset MK6 with 265/75R-16 or 265/70R-17 size tires will do the trick :thumbsup:

    We have plenty of the gunmetal fitments in-stock! Let us know when you're ready :D

    Looking good! Thank you for sharing.

    I got my wheels two and a half weeks ago. 16x8 ET-10. Couldn't pass up on the great deal I got.

    I used a very small amount of laquer thinner. It was like taking an eraser to it.

    And now they are gone.

    These wheels are super nice and clean

    Stoked that these are back so I can get a spare! They held up great to rock rash as well, especially since I nailed one really hard.

    So like some others, I was unlucky and the MK6's that were shipped to me don't fit over the hub. The bore is just slightly too small to get over my hub, Discount Tire even tried to sand away some paint from the bore.

    Considering I'm not the first or only one who's had this issue, I'm assuming it's a bad QA issue by Level 8/TSW. I'm obviously annoyed by this even though Discount Tire and DTD are working out an exchange, but I'm FOR SURE NOT buying these MK6's again. If only they could give me 2 hours of my life back I'd feel slightly better about this...
