    Does anyone have experience with Method MR305NV Wheels?

    I think I'm going to sell the Procomp Series 51 D Slot Steels.

    No experience but I almost bought these last week, then opted for a set of Moto Metal. -13 offset, rubs a bit but I'm still waiting on all of my lift parts to come through the mail.

    0 offset @ 16x8 you should have no rubbing issues.

    Thank you for the note. I saw some Moto Metals that I really like on Facebook. But I haven't been able to find them. The guy bought the truck with the wheels already installed and doesn't know the model number. These are the closest I can find.

    It looks like the zinc bolts can be ordered separately to have extras. I'm glad those are available separately. I see they provide lug nuts and a lug adapter with each wheel.

    From Tire Rack the order is $1,013.20 with all of the hubcaps and hardware.

    Are you ordering tires installed on those wheels?

    If so, beware from Tire Rack. I did that for the Wife's 4Runner. I bought General Grabbers and had a heck of a time getting them balanced. Tire Rack customer service was no assistance.

    Bought my Taco wheels from a different online retailer because of that experience.

    No tire order. I have a set of new 255/70-16 Michelin Defender LTX M/S tires. The wheels indicate 255/70-16 is the recommended tire size.

    I've found (now three) bad Procomp wheels that will not balance. Summit has replaced one. I have another one coming. We found another last night. I'm throwing in the towel on those wheels. I'll get the other bad replaced and sell them at a loss. The Procomp wheels rubbed the rotors. Then I had to buy spacers. Its been one thing after the next.

    I sure learned an expensive lesson about buying cheap wheels.

    I placed an order for a set. I've had good experiences at Tire Rack with multiple Koni strut and H&R spring orders. No tires orders that I recall.

    I like the idea these wheels are widely available.

    If something happens that is beyond my control and a wheel becomes damaged and unusable, I will need a way to get a fast replacement. I got over running specialty wheels like Fittipaldi a few years ago.

    That was my thinking when I ordered my set as well - cheap and easily replaced.

    Got a few done now
    I've got the NVs on my truck. 16x8, running 285/75x16 Toyo Open country on them. It's been a really good setup so far.

    I really enjoyed reading the Amazon reviews. Rarely see a product so well liked.

    I have these, in 17's wrapped in 285 65 yokohama geolander AT-S at the moment until i get a lift. Considering going 285 70/75 depending on what's available once lifted. Get the low profile center caps to go with them, much better look too!

    I am about to order some 305s in 17s and going to wrap them in 255/75s. I am just waiting for the price to drop on Amazon. They were down to $193 for a while. These wheels look good on tacomas. You won't be disappointed.

    I need to learn more about the low profile caps. I was surprised when I got a call from the order department to tell me everything is included (soup to nuts) in the box and I was ordering too much. I should get then tomorrow so I'll see what comes in the package.

    They come with the standard caps, tall as heck, ugly IMO. The low pro caps are extra unless they are including them now with the wheels instead of the old tall ones.

    I got them because I tried to get the SCS ray 10's for the longest time in 16x8's in matte black. Man those things go like hot cakes, and they take awhile to restock...

    Any who, I purchased NV's with the same spec that you have listed in your post. I love them. Only personal gripe I have is how much the center cap protrudes out, so I bought the center caps from Meso and plan to install them this weekend :thumbsup:. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the update. Post pics if you can.

    Someone on TW is making these. Look familiar?

    I'm not much of a photo taker, but this is one of the few that I have after I installed them.

    Additionally, those are the Meso caps I was talking about. You can find the forum here.

    EDIT: Also, I'm checking your linked Tire Rack post, and I was able to get my wheels for $187 per wheel at Discount Tire. They had them in stock locally. I don't know if you have a local dealer, but that might be something you might want to look into as well.
