Yup, they shipped yesterday. Tony is getting me the tacking info this evening or in the am when Forgeline get's it to him.

As a courtesy, he shipped me some black splined lugs, got them today.

So just a matter of a few days now.

Sweet! Make sure you jot that "tacking" info down so you don't forget it.

Is that a new method of installing wheels? Involves breaking fingers or no?

Hey....
New wheel test. No keys required... Carry them out to the street and line them up and roll them down the street..try not to hit the curbs...you can use a stick to make rolling them easier.

I just took the new keys to James. So he just came and got the wheels and took them home. I'll get them on tonight.

Nope. Nitto NT05s. I don't think they are classified as DRs but one step down due to the more solid sidewall???

Not 100% sure on that though.

Very nice. And they can be rebuilt or the width can be changed because they are 3 piece.

Fortunately for you they don't have a square rim option.
