Just talked to Hawke Wheels in South Carolina And the wheels are in. Going to ship me 2 for the rear. Bought some 275 40 tires. Supposedly they will fit. I'll post a pic when I get them mounted!!!

Good news and bad news. I received the wheels today and they are beautiful. Bad news 5 1/2 backset. they hit the frame without the tire mounted!!! I figured that in order to have the proper backst they would have a 2" lip instead of the 1" lip the stock 16X8 has. I figure an 1 1/4 adapter to make the work.
