I'm assuming I can get something for my current setup, to help offset the cost. The tires are practically new.

So I met with don today and swapped a wheel with him. His 285/75/16 fit well and since the TrXus are supposed to be a bit smaller than his ssr's I think they will be just right. Also they were no heavier than my wheel tire combo. Also I have 24 spline axles so that's good

Anyone know the offset on wolf wheels. That's what don had and they fit very well

Adrian - good meeting up today. That little 90 of yours is a nice rig! Looks great all black. Need to meet up again for but for a beer this time

Not sure if this helps but I weighed my SSR's with the Wolf's and they come out to 105lbs on a cheapo bathroom scale. Funny those 35" Goodyears weigh the same. I was surprised by how heavy those 235's felt on the narrow steelies. Must be the wheels. Might be worth a weighing them just to see.

The SSR's with Wolfs looked really good on your truck - actually reminded me of the pic of Red90's but black vs red (obviously). The Wolfs would be a good option as I don't think you'll be able to run alloys with those axle shaft ends and the backspacing is damn near perfect.

Holler if you have any more questions or if you want to take a spin in my truck to see how it feels with 285's.

Cool - If i had a scale i'd weight them, but then i might also weigh my self which would be bad.

Any issues with turning your truck on those tires... forgot to ask when you were here

Turning radius is nothing great but compared to my Suburban I feel like I can get in and around anywhere.

But when all said and done and if you go with a Wolf with 4.6" / 117mm backspacing you might be close to your current setup as far as turning radius. Those wheels you have now look to sit inside quite a lot.
