Tires delivered!

Well my tires are here and rims sitting down at the shop... Just waiting on the Rocky Road lift to get here and up goes the rig!

Decided on some black Helo 842's and some Nitto Terra Grappler 265/70/17's.

I'm putting it all together on the 16th. I'll keep an update and pics/comments of the install when its complete.

Some pics:


(sorry about the quality, cell phone pics below...)

Phunkey,

I see Red X's also. Those wheels are going to sit out far. What is the width on those wheels?

8 inches width on the rims.

I was going for a look close to Kelli's commander (you can search for his ring and see), I think he had a -6 offset on his Moto Metal wheels.

This is also what Rocky Road recommended as to minimize rubbing (0 offset). Might only stick out 1/2 inch more than people running spacers from what i figured.

Any suggestions though? I can still swap out the rims if something else will look/work better before they get mounted in a week...

I like those Nitto Terra Grapplers, I almost got those. Went with the Toyo Open Country's instead, but those were my two finalists.

I almost went for the Toyo's too.

On another note though my rims shouldn't stick out any further than CommanderFan's in his sig above this post if I'm correct... Am I?

CommanderFan, what's the offset on those?

Also, I fixed the teaser pics up top for everyone.
