H3T Sure doesn't look like 35s fit...

why not just have them mount wheels that fit properly?

I blame Custom Offsets for their propaganda on 'stance' for that.

After nine years I wanted to shake things up a bit - looked at hundreds of styles - couldn't find one with seven spokes in silver/chrome/machined - got hooked on Nitto Ridge Grapplers and that was the end of looking for 16s: they only have 265 or 285 in that size.

Wanted a more 3D style without sacrificing too much sidewall - these were the best I could find (that I liked) quickly - when we found out they only had a +15 offset...that we might have to move them out a bit...well that brain washing kicked in: "stance".

They're also 'temporary' in the sense they won't last more than two or three seasons with the sort of salt-bath they get subjected to up here.

Temporary might be a good term to describe the wheel bearings, half shafts, steering rack, and ball joints too with the added stress. :) Hopefully you used a high quality wheel spacer on a near 3 ton vehicle, lot of shear stress on those lugs.

That does not look much worse than mine.

Been running that way since I bought the rig in 2010.

However, I did have to replace the front bearings a couple of years ago IRC.

Wasn't surprised I needed to replace bearings around 136k miles. Could feel them getting incrementally worse. They put up with 33" Duelers for 8.5 years and a fair amount of aggressive driving...I felt bad for them! Front first, rears within a month. Just googled general life expectancy now:

"An average sealed wheel bearing lasts 85,000 to 100,000 miles although some can last as long as 150,000 miles."

Wasn't unhappy with what I got out of them - could certainly tell they were replaced.

You didn't need spacers for those Pro Comp's did you?
