Check the backspace. I looked into these wheels and the least amount of backspace you can get is 5.5. So, check and see if that will work for you, because it wouldn't for me.

Nice looking wheel though.

Ive got 4 of the 18X9's sitting here waiting for tires. Got them with the 5.5 backspace to go on my truck soon with some 37X13.5 tires and a Pro Comp lift. You cannot run these with a knuckle lift it must be a full drop. They have a stamping of 3500 max load per wheel and a maximum tire of 32.5. I pretty much only tow my car so the load is fine, as far as the 32.5 inch tire diameter I am sure that was put on there by a lawyer.

Oh and good choice, beutifull rims! I like how they will tuck the wheel in.

I was going to order those last last summer when they showed up in the catalog but I got tired of waiting, nice wheel though:D As far as backspace I dont know why you would want more than 5.5in backspace (might as well leave the ugly stockers on) I run 33x12.5-17 with 5in backspace and they fit great!!!

I called about these wheels yesterday and was told that they're unavailable. Those were 20X10's though.

I think I'm gonna go with the Eagle 114's. They look the same, but I think the lip is wider. Thanks for the info.
