Thanks Whip. BTW, did you see the pic that I provided that shows the grinding of the caliper. You were right on.

Yup, that's exactly what I had to do. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/002.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt020' /> You'll see it will start to rust a little bit over time. I'm gonna eventually paint my calipers, just haven't yet.

[quote name='Wraith']Man!  Those are sweet!  You should be able to do some serious four wheeling with those tires![/quote]Except for one thing....read my sig.
 
[quote name='VShortt']Well here they are.  A little late but just as I promised.  There are a total of 6 pics in two posts.  For those who are wondering, the ride has suffered somewhat from stock (as was expected).  The ride is a bit bumpier and the steering wheel does not want to correct after going around a turn.  Although not difficult, you have to help the wheel back to the straight position.  Road noise is not bad at all.  In fact, I used to have a set of BFG A/T's on my last truck that were noisier than these.  All in all, I'm very happy.  Hopefully when you see the pictures, you'll know why.[/quote]

I love your grill and tires and rims so much!!!!

If I had any money at all........like even 25 cent, I would put it towards making my truck look like yours.

Believe me when I tell you that I don't have a lot of money and most of my mods come from money that I collect doing work on the side. If it weren't for that, I'd barely be making my truck note. I'm just a normal Joe like 98% of the people on this site.

grinding of the caliper? They're not the corret backspacing? I'm only asking because I wanted to get the 17" version of those wheels eventually and now I'm worried that they dont fit correctly.

The 17's are available in more offsets than the 20's are. The offset of the 20's V and I have are actually a perfect offset for our truck. However, the spoke design of every wheel varies. Therefore your caliper clearance varies. On this particular wheel the spokes are thick and straight were as some wheels spokes bow out and are thinner to allow for more caliper clearance. The grinding of the caliper that needed to be done was nothing more than what should have been done at the factory. It was just a casting burr that was smoothed off. These wheels are the correct offset and fit for the Titan. But like I said, the 17's are available in more of a variety of offsets so you can probably get them so they stick out of the fender more and then you won't need to grind the calipers. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/002.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt005' />

Gracias, I feel alot better now. So if the wheels stick out more on the 17's then I have no choice but to get fender flares. Thats going to be my excuse.. I mean explanation to my girlfriend. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />
