Good for you. Are they like the ones I have? If so, that isn't a bad price. Did you get 4 or 5 of them?
BTW, contact Shawn or Mick and they can set you up on this sites picture gallery with your own acct and space. No cost.

Here's a question to the GURU's: On the 4wd XT turbo, Are the front and rear hubs the same? If so, that would make life sooo much easier. Looking forward to your reply, Boz

Ken, what size are your tires again? Do you have extra room or is that the max for you. You have the 4/3 lift right? Also, Is your suspension cranked all the way up? I would like to have the widest tires I can put on there. Probably gonna get Super Swamper TSL Thornbirds. I always loved them. I will be on the street more than the trail and so I am gearing more towards looks but still have off road capabilities.
Last one, How much did you have to trim your fenders?

Boz, I have 27" Swampers. I have a slightly modified 4/3" Ozified lift. Yes my suspension is cranked and I still get a little rubbing on extreme articulation. I don't think the Thornbirds come in a small enough size to run them on anything less than a 6 or 8" lifted Sube.
The hubs aren't the same. The rears have a smaller hub in the back where it matches up to the bearings.
BTW, $80.00 for Alloys isn't a bad price at all.

I will fix yours and PM you with the info.

I guess I will probably run into the same problem with sizing though. It seems that I am retarded! I cannot resize my pics to fit this board. I guess I just don't have the know how cause when I try to resize them they come out in avatar size or smaller yet I send them to people to resize and they come out fine.
Is this account something I can blast my pics into then give you a link to go to it? If so the size shouldn't matter then huh? (Not a joke!!)
Anyway, Let me know.
As for the rims, I would assume the offset would be fine? I know nothing about that stuff.
Can you (Anyone) recommend the meatiest most bad rump roast looking tire that I should be able to fit with a 4/3 lift and some trimming? What about without trimming?
Ken, I meant to mention, I knew you were running 27's but what about the rest of the #'s?? I would assume 15's but the middle # is what I am looking for.

Boz, i'll setup an account for you and PM you with the info. no need to resize, the gallery will do it for you.

That's about the baddest tire you will find in that size. Rumor has it that they are considering phasing these out as well. I guess we need more people to buy them to show Interco that they are popular enough to keep around.
I don't get rubbing in normal everyday driving. I cranked the suspension up prior to the last run at Evans Creek. I had been running at half mast prior to that. Rubbing occurs when I get into off camber situations. Mind you I am not running a sway bar and I get quite a bit more movement than the average Sube will see.

Oh, and BTW... those rims look great. $80 for 4 is a steal.
