    those look sharp but not to bust your bubble but those are a positive offset and if you plan on running anything wider than a 12.5 then they wont work they will rub the fram when turning someone corect me if i am wrong they do look good though[​IMG]

    That looks like a good deal you dog! Those are definately more unique then the 589 you were thinking about.
    Are you going with Big O XT's?

    not planning on running anything wider then a 12.5, if I do I'll get a different set of wheels w/ an aggressive tread so I can swap them back and forth easier...

    oh yea, I think I'm definately going w/ the Big-0 XT... wouldn't be as good as an actually mud tire, but looks like it aught to be pretty good... and you sure can't beat the price w/ the road hazard etc... [​IMG]

    I'm really concerned w/ the traction ability on ice and snow... They winters here are pretty hard (I had snow in my back yard that never melted from late october to late march).

    I'm pretty excite, and yea, I agree those are a LOT more unique then the 589s'... I was going w/ 589 because they look decent and they are CHEAP, but hey, if I can get these for that price I'll take em! [​IMG]

    hey mudhog,

    actually thanks a ton for the info... I wasn't planning on going wider w/ these, but I also was not aware that I could not with these rims... I don't think I'd wanna go wider w/ the 16x8 anyway...

    Carry extra valve stems when wheelin just in case those get sheared off. Looks like stem will be exposed a bit.
