Here's mine. I am probably going back to PYOs and 265s though for better mileage.

I have a set of 265/75/16, and a set of 285/60/18's, the 285's are 1/2" shorter than the 265's! And it looks like you've got the same 285's as me Toyo AT's. So I don't see how the tire swap will increase your milage.

Here's a pic of mine, going to 33's in a couple days though.

I'd like to see this wheel in a 18" pictured on one of our trucks. I think it would look pretty nice. There's an 18x8.5 with a +25 offset 5.75" BS that would tuck in rather nicely.

8 Lug?

DerekM What wheel is that? Does it come in an 8 Lug? I did a lot of research and did not come up with that wheel. I too wanted a wheel that would tuck. At least a 5 1/2 Back Space. I ended up ordering an Intro Billet wheel 17X8 with 5 3/4" BackSpace. I will post pics of my truck when they come in.

Dogwalker:

They aren't as wide (less rolling resistence) and I can lower the truck back down a bit (less air resistence).

Sorry about that dragrcr. They are MB Motoring Predator wheels. They come in the 8-165.1 lug pattern from 16, 17, 18, and 20 inch sizes. The 18x8.5 in the 8-165.1 lug with +25 offset runs $150 each at http://www.discounttiredirect.com. I really think this wheel would look nice, I'd like to see them on a truck before I do a purchase. I'll be do for some tires in about a year, so I've got a little time.

Post some pics of your Intro Billet wheels when you get a free second.

These are on 20's not 18's

Here is a picture of each one of my pickups on 20's. :eek:fftopic: Niether truck has a lift, but had to trim a bit on front bumper to allow tires to turn. The DMAX had to crank up the tortion bars a bit also, but other than that tires fit pretty good. The tires are 305/55/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers which have been great tires.

phatty, without a doubt, you have my personal favorite truck on the diesel place!

I sure miss my Arrival Blue truck--it was a 6.0 gas I traded because it was a lemon POS. It was near the end of the model year, so I couldn't find a blue Dmax in the configuration I wanted anywhere in the US. I really like my charcoal one, but your truck absolutely rocks!!

There isn't a thing I don't like about it! The whole package fits together so well, I'm jealous!:ro)

If you ever sell that truck, you'd better let me know. I'll be interested!

Hey Phatty, nice set up, its my favoite too! Do you know what the backspacing is on those Eagle 144's? Do you have a side picture, how much do they stick out? Did you have to do a lot of trimming?
