    So...I ended up returning the wheels I bought a couple months ago and am in the the market again.

    I want something clean looking, but I keep running in to back order issues everywhere. I guess this is just how it is. Probably more so this time of year when the weather turns nice.

    I like these Level 8 MK6's. Any thoughts? Pros? Cons?

    I am looking at the 17x8 with either the -10mm offset or the 0 offset. The backspacing is about 4.5-5.11" so it will push them out from stock 1"-1.5". Really the only concerns is if they stick out from under the fender at all am I going to be flinging stuff back on my paint?

    Mostly I like these because the center cap is flat and I can cover it with my custom domed sticker logos I got. Not a big fan of embossed center caps with company logos.

    I've tried reaching out to FN but I think they are just too busy to get back to me and it seems that SCS is out of stock as well.

    Is that just how it is?

    Anybody got anywhere else I can try? I am finding these are on back order from 60-90 days.

    Yeah the price is probably worth waiting for...though I could have something more expensive paid off by the time they come off back order.

    How far can a tire poke out under the fender before I have to worry about stuff flinging and dinging the side of the rig?

    I would look at SCS. I would also make sure whatever you buy is hub centric and made for Toyota’s.

    Have you tried calling FN Wheels? Emailing them won’t work as it seems they hardly check email. I think there is a phone number floating around various forums for a guy named Dustin at FN Wheels. That would be your best bet to reach them and order wheels.

    I've tried contacting FN through the website, text, and left a voicemail. I know they are busy and I guess it's a great problem to have when you can't get back to potential customers timely....not so great though when you're the customer. Oh well is what it is I guess...first world problems for sure.:sadviolin:

    Though I really like these Level 8's. I've exhausted every search I can. Found a lot of dealers act like they have them in stock on their websites but they all seem to order from the same fulfillment center. Discount Tire still shows you can get them in 3-5 days on their website (which is total b.s.) and their local store told me they were 60-90 days out over a week ago. One dealer even told me that since TSW inquired Level 8 they were probably phasing them out all together. Ryan from TSW didn't mention that, but he was also cool enough to get back with me with in a couple hours. Which he didn't have to since I'm not one of his dealers. That alone is why I'm willing to wait 90 days for these. I'm easily won over by great customer service.

    If there is anyone out there that can source me a set of 4 Level 8 MK6's in matte black, 17x8; 6x139.7; with a 0 offset, with reasonable pricing and shipping I'll get you a gift card to Longhorn Steakhouse....:hungry:
