It was like the bolt pattern was off center. The balance machine wanted 4oz, all the other wheels balanced out with less than 2oz, you could really see it when it was spinning.

Thanks I love how they look and the Toyo MT has a awesome quit/smooth ride as usual.

xjrguy valve stems look great but hope they don't get stolen.

parker65 A little tire lube, anti-sieze and 24 bolts per wheel. It'll work you more than you think. I just did five of those in Argent a couple of weeks ago for mine.

Salticon Wheels came in today, I don't know when I'll get to put them together, I've been busy changing out 3.6 heads at the shop..

JerryJeepster Here are some pics of mine. 315/70/17 Duratracs. I like the spacing on mine and added a couple washers on the steering stops. In all honesty I can't tell any less turning radius. The finish on mine have not scratched and balanced out perfectly.

Salticon Was it a pain to mount the tires with the beadlocks?

Im running 35s on mine, and had very slight rubbing on my lower control arms (im lifted). The issue was very easily fixed with a couple of washers on the steering stops. 10 minutes total.

Maybe, but not for 35" tires. Don't get me wrong, I love these wheels in black but not gonna pay that much for a wheel that I have to use spacers with. I rather not reduce the turning radius by adjusting steering stops but it is an option. Maybe the next rig I'll stay with 33s.
I was hoping they would come out with them in 4.5" BS.

Easy to scratch and tissue paper thin paint job.

I rubbed paint off just by putting my lug nuts on (and I used a thin wall socket)

Going to have to get them powdercoated or something else for longevity.
Mine are good to go, and i've ABUSED mine. Finish is just fine for me
