    Thanks to Keith at FWP, my 16x10 8-lug rock crawlers are here today. So I'm headed out after work to have my MTR's mounted up, then try them out this weekend. Keith is a CK5 member, and worked me up a good deal on five rims and a set of stainless brake lines. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I got a good price break on my stuff, and creative shipping to get it to to me for a reasonable cost.

    He followed up with several phone calls to let me know when the wheels shipped, and called me back after hours when I couldn't find the brake lines (they were right in the box where he said they were /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif)

    I highly recomend giving him a shout if you need something from FWP. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Thanks Keith! I'll be call'in about a winch soon!!

    Wheels are 16x10 Rockcrawlers, 4.25" BS

    Tires are 315/75 R16- 10ply MTR's

    I need to trim the rear of the front wheel well a little /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif, but they seem to fit pretty well on a 4" lift.

    What size is that in inches approx. It looks like a good combo with the tire/wheel/lift after a bit of trimming /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Basically, it's a 35x12.5 for a 16" rim

    I stood one up beside my other set of 35x12.5 15 inch A/t's and thery were the same height.
