MHT FUEL HOSTAGE 17x8.5 ET+14
NITTO TERRA GRAPLERS 265/70/17










Slight rubbing on the liner at full lock but, nothing a heat gun can't fix. The tires are extremely quite for A/Ts and handle well. Alltho, they did take a lot of weights to balance to 0.

Thanks Matt.

What is your experience with the TGs? I wanted to get the Duratracs but, I got a great deal on these.

It's just a subjective thing. I think Nitto ruined the tire by putting the "hotwheels" lightning bolts on the sidewall. Every time I see them i just shake my head like "wtf were they thinking".

Other than that, reviews on them are hit or miss. The seem to wear quick on fullsize trucks... owners either end up loving them or hating them.

That's a good lookin' rig ya got there. A black antenna would finish off that black on red look...nice wheels & tread too!

Talking to a banned member. I guess you missed it -- he really went off the deep end.

I looking at the exact same rims...what offset did you get and are you running spacers still?
17 x 8.5
+14 offset
5.3" backspace

No spacers needed.
