Well I'm totally into the big custom builds .

Wish my pockets were deep as yours😄

I'm in AWE. Those wheels are going to look bbbbbadass.

What are you getting for tires?

I know you are brother! And I dig that about ya haha As far as tires I’m currently running toyo’s on my 22’s and I’ve ran nitto before too and really like them both. Unfortunately they don’t make a 26 inch tire (well nitto makes a trail grap in a 40 but I like my bumpers the way they are lol)so I’m going with a fury tire in 37x14.5r26 or a 38x15.5r26. I’m trying to talk with them about it. I still have a bunch of powder coating to do first so we’ll see if I can talk them into something.

Got a message about lip depth on the new wheels and I understand because there’s nothing close to them for a size reference the misconception but yes the lips are deeper than 5 inches. One of my clients let me use one of his big faces so we could make the picture look cooler but this gives you a bit of a size reference on the lip depth.

Also if you haven’t seen the truck anywhere else on this forum here’s how she currently sits in her first version seeing as were about to start the full teardown.33AEA923-D626-4B58-BD7F-E07895944F0F.jpeg.e3ed6a22742e771408ca93f5a91f9271.jpeg3473DABF-9B59-48AE-AF25-59DA84DB9F65.jpeg.2f1453d87f08d32c69076b4b7086bdf0.jpeg318913D0-95E7-47C9-8C96-EA0754BACE84.jpeg.bf9382342f5482d25dead1cfc91d2ee7.jpegCDB6D4AE-D973-4B6F-88FE-A7EE9D7C7303.jpeg.3e825caf6b78665603850685e76eb1e8.jpeg96E6239A-3399-4DC7-8556-8D8BF63D1930.jpeg.cd2c4a01a2c38a4dc97c8ce1b12deec7.jpeg849FD515-04FB-4699-9595-6E446F78FDBB.jpeg.4aca1577416b6fd45225351405bdf7f6.jpeg2FC96ABC-FC0A-435D-8DE6-9733B2536C28.jpeg.539fad8bc5ffddeceaaaf71988fb1a5d.jpeg

Looks like 8" - 8 1/2" to me.

That's as big of a lip you'll see anywhere. Badass.

And they're forged.👍👍

You know a smart man would have just measured the lip instead of setting a bill down in old custom offset form lol apparently I am not that smart man haha

So The rain stopped momentarily and we’ve had nice weather for the past couple days so I gave the truck a bath and drove her to the shop today to get a little size comparison. You were right my friend they have an 8” lip as were the 22x12’s just over 5”. I like to call this visual comparison You vs The guy she tells you not to worry about 😂🤣1052F02C-39E1-4103-9DE7-2B024C54E0F7.thumb.jpeg.ee171fe083de6e543673eba562ed715e.jpegEA2C1FCF-49CF-43A0-9A95-7EF0C2761A39.thumb.jpeg.47fc09d28f18b186afea14808490ab93.jpeg
