You might want to take it to a shop and swap the rear wheels and see if the noise is still there. You never know.

My wheels do the exact same thing on the stock 18" and the aftermarket 19". Really pronounced when I back into the garage, the sound echoes. Never gave it much thought, as the performance doesn't seem to be affected.

How many lug bolt turns for the stock wheels?

Well the faces for the wheels were made with offsets same as the stock wheels. So im assuming the threads into the hub are going to be the same also.

Offset shouldn't affect threads in the hub. They just counter sink the holes more. Sounds like you're not buying my theory.

Well i will be installing and checking the thread count and comparing them. But are 4.5 threads normal or too short into the hub?

Can't be the wheels. Like I said, happens on both my sets. Also not the lug bolts, as it happened when I had OEM lugs bolts, and is happening now that I have the Turner lug conversion.

Clicks, dude. Stop, go into reverse, start moving, click, click, click. Sounds like it is coming from the rear. Particularly noticeable when I'm moving in one direction, stop, and start moving in the other direction. Quite noticeable, that clicking sound.....

Hmmmmmmmmm as I think about it....wonder if it's the diff....
