    Hey all! Happy holidays, it's Christmas in FL and wheel mounting happened. I'm happy with my choice, I think the meaty tires look good for a truck. Only wish the front wheels were available in a +12 offset. The +22 still has them sunk into the wheel well a bit, I'll prob end up running spacers eventually. No rubbing or trimming required. Truck feels slower now because the tires actually stick :p, so more boost in the works.

    Truck looks great dude!
    The black trim look from the weather stripping actually gives a nice contrast to the Cavalry Blue.
    Oh yeah, and the wheels are sick!

    Thanks! The black trim being a good contrast is the first thing I thought after I painted it. I'm going to continue with that theme for whatever else I can add .

    I'm sure there's been some change in speedo as the setup is plus sized over stock but not so much that I notice. Haven't tried to check it w gps or radar yet.
    I was going for a tiny bit of stretch with a good sidewall. Front is perfect, rear might have been better as a 275 but looks fine.
    Sizes are:
    Front 19x9.5 +22 with 255/40 kumho ecsta ps91
    Rear 19x10.5 +22 with 285/40 kumho ecsta ps91
