Default XD Monsters w/ Nitto Terra Grapplers 295 70 18

So I got them today. Had a small issue. I was torn between chrome and black but they gave me the wheels for $210/piece in the end at Discount Tire so I snagged chrome. They arrived today and they were black (almost a week later). I asked them what they could do if I kept them and they knocked off another $40 off per wheel!

So "reluctantly" I gave in. So I got the tires listed in the title as well with them. Boy they look great, but a TIGHT fit!

Monsters are a +18 offset (+20mm is stock, so a more even and or negative offset and you could go with a bigger tire). Here is a teaser pic. I need to wash the beast tomorrow hopefully then Ill get pics up(had to detail the interior today)!

Clearance is MIGHTY close, but no rubbing for all those worried about this combination! I do have a 2" level kit but I believe theyd still have the height clearance (this only shows the width).

Well, thats not too bad. Tite,but you can live with that. Mine are supposedly on the way (fingers crossed). I got the machined Rockstars in a 18x9 with 5in bs and 0 os. And 295 70 18's Nitto Grapplers also,so hopefully theyll have some extra clearance???? Thanx for the pic. I bet they look great.

Yeah, if you have 0 offset then you will have 18mm more than I have of clearance. You probably couldve gone to a 305 without an issue too.

Thats what i was thinkin too. 305 would look cooler. But i wanted to be sure of size since i ordered them online. And thats the size they recomended. I'll live with 295's i guess. Thats still a pretty big tire. lolol i didnt wana have to sendem back if they rubbed. Cuz i aint usin spacers.

Man, your truck looks awesome! The dark tint with the blue really stands out. Not to mention the rims and tires. Sweet ride!!

Wow dude, that looks outstanding. I really like the XD Monsters, I want that setup, same size Monsters with the same size Terra Grapplers (had them on my old truck and loved them) just in chrome. I think the black works great on your truck though, looks sick.
