I definitely don't want 30 series on the back unless it's at least a 285 width so that the sidewall with equal the front sidewall. They are 19" diameter, 10" wide on rear, 9" wide on front.

If that's the case, I can see them not releasing the wheels as they might not know exactly what it is.

Not giving out wheel offset is totally unacceptable, its like buying a car without knowing how many hp it makes.

I feel for you man.

I told you some of these wheel brands weren't going to give you the offsets. (remember?)

Now you can see why I was telling you to demand this info UPFRONT.

With certain brands, that's the only way you will ever get them to release this important wheel fitment info. (if at all)

It's also the only time in the entire process where you have any real leverage.

What brand/model did you end up getting anyway?
