A lady at work has them on her truck, they look pretty sweet. She wants to upgrade to 20"s, and hers are 18"s. I told her if she ever switched up to let me know so I can buy them.

For $200 unless they are completely f-ed up, is a really good deal.

too bad they don't make them any more

bought them around 2006 probably and about 10 months into owning them i started having some clearcoat peeling on one of them. they were discontinued and they could not locate another rim anywhere.

great looking wheels IMO just basic and tasteful.

to start..... I DID SEARCH,

I currently have 245/70/16 tires, I bought wheels with 270/45/20 tires installed - I was told they rubbed when turning (Fronts are warn down to the metal insides). My question is, what is the biggest tire size without spacers? I noticed alot of people are running 265/50/20, which I am assuming do not rub? Let me know, Thanks

the picture of the red truck above is sitting on 275/45/20 that don't rub

might be an inappropriate offset on your wheels? are you running a drop kit? which one?

are they wearing on the sidewall or the tread? if it is the tread, that would denote negative camber

Looks like the previous owner needed an alignment really bad. Bit of positive camber issue.

Was the other vehicle lowered. Would be a good cause for rubbing.

I dont think so, they reccommended going with the stock SS tire size though. I'm just wondering if 265/50/20 are going to fit these without any rubbing or turning issues?

Measure the offset to see if anyone has any input.
