When you say "they do stick out rather far", do you wish you went with -12 offset instead? I have a order in for 20x10 -24 Hostages with a 6" Fabtech kit.

not at all man.. the toyos are really effing beefy and super aggressive looking.. my truck looks massive w/ just the bilsteins. i am sitting on my rcx 6" now and need to find time to get it installed. i cant wait to see how it looks w/ the lift installed.

i think the -24 offset looks killer.. some people dont. at some point i will get some flares but its not a priority right now.

i was sold on the -24 offset after drooling over candy08's and Musclemckeester's photos. i actually traded in my nissan frontier for the ram after seeing photos of their trucks

I still have those fender flares and they are smooth gloss black OEM flares that came with the truck. I tried to reply to your PM but this site won't let me unless I have 25 or more posts? My e-mail is behlingout@verizon.net.

How are they riding?

I have the same rims (18") and the AT 2 extreme (not what I ordered, but that's what they shipped). My truck shakes & bumps a lot. I put on stock sized Michellins & it's almost as smooth as an SUV. I'm stumped.

They ride great.. truck drives straight as an arrow.

One thing I did notice (actually my wife noticed) was when I had the stock rims and tires along w/ 1/4 spacers the truck bounced a bit when I would go 70mph.. With just the bilsteins and stock rims/tires there was none of that but I put the 1/4 spacers on thinking i was going to run the stock setup after my lift went on.

i have no complaints so far.. i am really paying attention to the wear and plan on rotating every oil change (5k miles).

Thanks. I figured out part of the issue. It's not the tires (for now lol)

You're making me want to get a set of MTs in 35/37. Your truck is simply awesome.
