    Thanks Erik. Really happy with them. Did a ton of research on fitment after reading some threads here about rubbing and am happy to report that I have gone full lock in multiple scenarios with no issues at all.

    Specs below -

    17x8.5
    Offset: 0
    Backspace: 4.75
    Bore: Hub centric to Toyota Trucks (Reached out to Method and confirmed before ordering)

    My suspension: stock

    Hey Dookie316
    Looks like just the satin black and gun metal for now.

    Had my local tire shop who would be mounting them put in the order. Prior to that, I reached out to Method directly and asked a few questions about fitment and they were really quick and detailed with the response. I was sold.

    Thanks. that weight is intriguing to me. A lot of the aftermarket wheels are 32lbs+. I am assuming these are the satin black? The colors on their website don't seem to represent their actual color well. All their 'matte black' wheels looks more gray in their listings.

    Yup. Satin Black. It's a true black thankfully. Would look awesome on your red runner.

    I'm actually thinking of avoiding black. I like the look on several of the method models but these 316's are just super clean and classic with a great price point. the titanium color has me interested, but i might do a bronze wheel for a bit of pop.

    They look good dude!! The 8.5 inch wheel definitely make the tires look much better and bigger. That how they looked on my Pro with my SCS wheel. After I lift my Pro with my Eibach springs I may stay with stock size tires on my SCS wheels.

    Ruspro17 - Definitely a big improvement from the stock set up. My plans regarding suspension are only to level (for now) which limited my options. So finding something wider with less off set all while staying hub centric became quite the chore. happy with how they turned out.

    1. Those wheels look great!
    2. No fake beadlocks!!
    3. These specs are really hard to find in a lighter wheel, these are really really good specs. My issues with most wheels:

    Heavier than OEM wheels, 9" Width, Offset always -12 or +18...these resolve all 3 of those while NOT having beadlocks. Also, have had Methods in the past (308 Roost), and really were a quality product.

    Man if I hadn't already got wheels these would have immediately moved to the top of my list.

    Yeah I know Fajitas21!! I’m in the same boat. I have a brand new set of F5’s waiting to go on my AG pro. I will have time to think about selling them or not. Those’s Methods would look good on my AG Pro.

    Hey George, if you don’t mind me asking what was the total price shipped to you. Also did you have to buy the wheels locks also. Thanks Don.

    Ruspro17 - Did the order through my local Discount Tire. Did not have to buy the wheel locks. Price out the door was $990.00 (including mount and road force balance).
    One thing to note - When I spoke to the service team at Method before I placed the order, they recommended using Extended Thread lugs, which I did. Although I am not entirely sure it was necessary.

    Wheels are wheels, it’s the Made in China part I try to avoid these days if I can. Those guys are just not going to get my money no matter how cheap their stuff is, or if the company selling the item is domestic. They can achieve world domination without my help.
