Depending on the build, those will look really nice! What are you putting them on?

Nice - that setup should play together nicely, although are you sure that tire size will work? A 29” tire just barely clears the stock struts, and you are 30-31” diameter? On my lowered E, my 29” tires just ever so slightly rub the inner front fender well on the front and back - check for clearance there, too...

Stock wheels are 45mm offset, these are 0.
A few E owners have fit 255/70/16 on stock height with 20mm or less offset.

I had to do the usual, hammer the pinch welds, used a dremmel to cut/trim where needed. I was pretty aggressive with my trimming as I will be adding some fender flares. Once the flares are on I am enlarging about an inch of my wheel wells.

Thanks for reply. That looks great by the way. Good job.
TY, once the flares are on the larger opening will look better IMHO.
Looking back I should have done the 3" HRG lift, I would like to see more "space" between top of tire and fender.

Man I dig those wheels and beefy tires!
If you like the wheels & tires, you can buy the whole car! He's got it listed in the Trading Post section on this site:

Looks good Herk, how did mount the roof basket? I like that yours seems mounted directly so it isn't lifted to rest on crossbars, but that may just be the angle.
