Default Fuel Hostage III's

Really liked the look of the Hostage II's for my Sterling Grey, but they are only making them in 10 inch or 12 inch width with pretty aggressive offset, which doesn't fit my desire to not go beyond coilovers and AAL.

So when the III's came out, I put an order in. Nasty day for pics, but here they are (20x9 with a +20 offset) with Toyo ATII Extreme in 295/60R20

Great looking ride! I have the Fuel Hostage rims as well, but with the +1 offset. I was debating what tire size to go with. I put a 2" level on the front. Are you having any issues with rubbing with those tires?

Thanks man.

I have no issues with my clearances. My Boss Coilovers are set at ~2" of lift, and did some very minor trimming of the front plastic valence under the bumper. Now that may be different for your more aggressive offset.

Here's some better pics now that she's clean:

How are you liking those Toyo AT2's? Ride comfort on road, cabin noise, wet weather traction, etc?

Second set of ATIIs and they are my favorite AT - have used BFGs, Nitto TerraGs and Dunlops in the past. Ride is like any other 10 ply, but the guys who mount them tell me these are some of the easiest to balance, which keeps things pretty smooth. Noise is better than all except the Nitto, but not much louder at all - and the benefit of better mud shedding is what has me sold on them. It's been raining here for 3 weeks, and they handle it as well as any other I've tried. Hope it helps

The +20 offset on a 9" give you 5.75 backspacing
