I really like the look of his wheels but not to debate about how he redrilled them.

So prob best to have the 40 all the way around, Im not worried about the rotation of the tires, to rotate, if I use same size tires all the way around, you can still rotate them, just rotate them off the rims lol

Joey D I have a +40 offset on mine and I don't have an issue. They sit about flush with the fenders.
