Well I wasn't able to change out the lugs, lower the bags to check clearance or take any new pictures. I played in a 3 day pool tournament and didn't get back until late today. I'll get some this weekend for sure though(weather pending).

I do have a question though. I drove my car around 150 miles this weekend and not once noticed any shaking etc....and I don't have my hub rings on. Has anyone ran without them that had different size OD/ID? I wondering if I don't even need to install them?

Hub rings help center the wheel when you install them. If you take the time and properly torque (or at least tighten the bolts in pattern) correctly, they should center fine. I still rather have them on than not...

Well I took all the bag pressure out. I took some far away picture and also got someone to get in the trunk for the close up pictures to see if it cleared the fender lips. It appears that I clear the fender lip on one side, and barely hit the other. I need a toe adjustment and a all wheel alignment.

I'm still planning on getting some HD pictures with the new lugs on this weekend, weather permitting.

Definitely looks a lit better with the back end down. It just looks goofy with the front sitting so high...so I evened it back out again after I took the pictures.







Left side....looks clear.



Right side...looks like it will hit.



Left side is tucked in a little.


Right side seems further out than the left side.

Will they scrub with the stock suspension in the rear with 275s?

They could. bfg's run a little wide. Nothing a roll/cut of the rear fender wouldn't fix.
