Help! Question about Eagle Black Alloy Wheels!

Does anyone know if the simulated bead lock chrome piece comes off/pops off on this particular wheel?

no.....it's machined just like any other wheel. Pretty much, it';s a decorative out side lip/rim....whatever the technicle term is. But....it'd look killer on your truck as is.

I'm thinking about getting them... some guy over on RPS has them. He is near me, and its a really good deal. He has only one pic of them on his truck. His truck is almost identical to mine. They are 16"x I don't know yet, with 295/75/16 Nitto Terra Grapplers. Only 6 months old.

Ok, so the wheels are 16x8. I found out that the backspacing on these wheels is 4 inches. Which I assume that pulls the tire/rim under the fenders more instead of sticking out. I hope this doesn't cause a problem with a 33.4"x11.75" tire rubbing.

Your backspace currently is 3 5/16"(I went ot MT's website and looked it up). Those wheels you want will only be sucked in 11/16" more than from where they are now. On my truck, I've got 4" back space and 32x11.50s..they fit fine....plus you have a BL...you'll be good to go.

If you are really wanting all black ones....

I think the sim bead lock will break up the black between the tire and the rim, unlike that rim will. I don't know though, what do you think?
