    Wow I really dig the dark grey rims they fit my style, my car better, they come in a set of 5, and their cheaper! Just what I needed! And you said you didn't have to fit spacers or grind down the brake caliper at all? Also what was your solution to the TPMS system because I noticed those rims don’t come With them either?

    @Jimmy Brooks I did not do spacers or grind anything. The wheels fit perfectly without issue. They look good and seem to work great. I have ko2s 265/65.

    I planned to not have tpms and remove with gap tool. I noticed today that discount tire put a tpms on My wheels. I will send Pic tomorrow.

    Here's a pic of the TuffAnts (brand new and on the trail) with 265/65/18 ko2s. I did not install tpms but disabled them using the GAP Tool.

    @kenk did you get a spare tire as well? If so, how much did you have to air down for it to fit? I wanted to go with the 265/65/18 TuffAnts as well but their website says you'll need to air down to get it to fit.

    Just installed the Tiffant 265/65/18 w/ KO2. Had to completely air down the spare.

    I did get the full-size spare and had to deflate it almost completely (I never measured the psi) and used a floor jack to help wedge it in there. Others online mention not having as much trouble as I seemingly did (like not having to deflate so much or mention using a jack to help squeeze it in) while some others had more and removed the plastic shield to make it work. I carry an air compressor to inflate the tire, although it's primary use is re-inflate tires after airing down for off-roading.
