    My trucks 4x4... and Yes. With a slightly narrower or slightly shorter tire, they wouldnt rub. They actually barely rubbed. You could hear it but it was doing any damage to tires or truck. They just barely scuffed the plastic inner fender. It didnt leave any scrapes on the plastic, just kinda buffed it because it was touching so lightly. The tires didnt hit on any metal parts of the body or suspension or anything. I was actually thinking about just trimming the plastic up an inch and it wouldnt have touched. Ya my tires are 305s. They tires dont rub on the stock rims but really, they are too big to put on stock rims. They mounted them but the tires wont last long on this narrow of rim. Gonna be some premature wear on the edges of the tire so I'm told

    Do you think that if you hadn't put such wide tires on that it wouldn't have rubbed quite as much? I'm thinking of maybe going a 285 or 275 (you had 305 right?). I really like the looks of the rims, but I'm kind of in the same boat as you, I don't really want any rubbing. But I'll let you know before the 18th whether or not I'm going to get them off you. Then you won't have to haul them all the way up there for potentially nothing. ha ha. Also, is your truck a 2wd or 4wd?

    The rims were $808 US with shipping. Make sure the shipper will ship USPS or else you pay brokerage/duty. If they ship fedex/UPS, I would stay away. Ive bought some stuff that shipped fedex and ended up with a bill 2 months later for brokerage. Pain in the ass when you get hit with a bill later that doubles the original cost.

    I bought these rims on ebay from Elite wheels or something like that? It was a lot cheaper than buying in Canada. Definatly the way to go. And the dollar is better now than when I bought them so even a better deal for you to buy now. Some sellers will be $20 higher but include shipping so look out for that. Also some people will include lug nuts which I didnt realize were going to be over $100 plus locking lug nuts are expensive.

    But if you like my rims, they are mint shape. No scrapes or anything. I'll throw them in the truck when I come out to Edmonton if you are interested. Im in Edmonton from March 18-21. Just coming out to see a buddy for the weekend.

    I actually live near Grande Prairie. It's about 4 hours from Edmonton. I'll be on shift on the 18th, but I have a couple friends who live in Edmonton. So if I do buy them off you, it would be easy to have one of them pick them up. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for shipping/duty/brokerage by buying from the states? I'm interested in a couple other rims I've seen on ebay, but I don't want to pay 800 dollars for rims, then another 500 in other costs... But I'm not too sure how to calculate duty/brokerage.

    well shipping is gonna be costly for the rims.... Thats a bulky package. Where do you live? I see your canadian but I couldn't find your city. Im driving to Edmonton on March 18th so maybe you are on the way haha. I paid $800 US for the rims. The lock nuts and lug nuts were around $120 or so from Lordco and they arent needed anymore with the stock rims. Feel free to make an offer. I haven't done any research yet to see what they are actually worth so I dont know what to ask yet.

    Hey, how much are you looking to sell those rims for? Would you be willing to ship? If not, I might be willing to make the drive if the price is right (it's only 13 hours. ha ha)
