OMG, I love the sidewall and the 17's

I SO dislike my 18's with the 40's.

Moose, I am your Huckleberry...............same sh*t happened to me. AM 17x10 bullitts with MT 295/45 DR's. AM mounted the weights on that outside edge. I didnt realize it was an issue till I backed out of my warehouse and sheared off all the weights.

Got them rebalanced and sent the bill to AM. Tires are very stable and look awesome.

Thanks! I couldn't remember who it was and thanks for the pic of the stock sway bar mount.

I would like the 17 x 10's on the back yes. It will be a little while until I get them though...I just bought it so I need to throttle back on the spending for awhile. haha

I ended up grinding them down a little bit. Was a little too close for comfort if you know what I mean.
