Anyone know if these will fit w/ the stock bumps on the tailgate? I had ordered some new adjustable ones a few days ago (just in case) but they haven't arrived yet.

I'm busy working so I haven't had time to put the rear tire on yet.

Thanks for the info. Sweet looking set up, I'm drooling (and saving my pennies, too).

Now here's a question for those in the know. Do you need to recalibrate your speedo with these tires? Doesn't sound like it if you got 32's stock on your Jeep. Does the procal or others even get that accurate as to have tenths or fractions of inches in tire diameter? Even if they did, does it honestly matter?

I have my procal, but haven't fully read that piece yet in the manual.

Ok, I have 2 tires installed and I'm about to loose my effin mind here. Somebody please tell me what I'm missing.

Got 2 tires on and when I try to secure the centercap the damn thing doesn't sit tight to the wheel. The centercap "looks" like it has 2 screws that secure it to the wheel. In reality, one is a false screw. So when you tighten the one "real" screw, it sucks that side of the centercap in, which causes the other side to bow away from the wheel.

I'm not overtightening, I'm just barely screwing it on.

Please tell me I'm doing something stupid.

Figured out the problem, but haven't found a solution.

I'm very close to telling DTD to take these things back.

Here's the deal.....if you take an unmounted wheel (not on the Jeep) and tighten down the centercap, it works just fine. Try it on a mounted wheel and this issue crops up. The issue is that the lug nuts cause the centercap to not sit flush w/ the wheel so when you tighten it, the other side of the cap bends out and away from the wheel. Anything looser and the cap clangs around

What a goofy design. The lug holes only need to be about an 1/8 inch deeper. The only solution I can think of is to put some small washers on the screw, between the cap and the wheel. This should solve the issue but I'm still pretty mad about it.

Just spoke w/ Tim at DTD. He said a set of open-ended lugnuts should solve my problem as that are bit shorter. He's shipping me out a set. Thanks Tim!

I'm going to try out my washer solution as a temporary fix and i don't want to take the tires back off now.

Apparently this could happen to anyone w/ these rims, depending on the lugnuts you use. My washer "trick" solved the issue until the replacement lugs arrive.

Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong w/ the black rocks. It's just a matter of using the correct lugs so that the center cap sits flush w/ the wheel. It's no biggie.

Have you considered leaving the center caps off? I pitched them on a set of ARs I have, and IMO the wheels look better without the caps. Not saying yours would, but it might be worth trying.

I considered that and may go that route at some point. For now, I think these wheels look better w/ the cap on.

Hello Matt. Any deals comeing up soon on this set up? I am looking into getting a 2010 JKU and will need wheels and tires and as always looking for a good deal. Thanks again!


QUOTE=Discount Tire;1363898]Sorry for the delay everyone.


The information we put together in this thread should help.

The Skinny on Hub Centric Rings - Honda Ridgeline Owners Club Forums

It's important to remember that force friction overcomes the load/shear forces of the vehicle. The studs are simply under tension when torqued. If you think about it, the studs and hub pilot can not bear the weight of the vehicle, at all.

I should also note here that most aftermarket truck/SUV wheels are not hub-centric and for the most part, do not have an applicable ring. Trucks and SUVs typically utilize larger tires/sidewalls which helps absorb any vibrations caused by wheel offcenterness that may have occured during installtion. However, more and more wheel manufacturers are including hub-centric rings with their truck and SUV wheels.

I hope this helps.

The chart will only be accurate if you have gotten the info from Goodyear's website.

Going to 33's is not going to be off by much. Now if you go from 30's (stock 17's) to 35's it will. My MPG said I'm getting 17 miles a gallon hwy, I know that's not true. More like 18-19ish.
