    Hey man, I'm about to order the same wheels/tires you are running on your F450 for mine... Can you confirm how it pulls a heavy trailer? I'm thinking it'll put me to the equivalent of 3.90 gears... Also, I'm in south texas, would you recommend those same tires for around here? Thanks!

    Stuart, thanks! Convinced me to pull the trigger. Just emailed Heather. Take care. If you find yourself on the Kitsap side, let me know and I'll buy the first round.

    Hi Steve,

    I originally bought them for my 2008, when one wheel had an issue, Rickson had me send them all back at their expense. I had slight rubbing on the 2008, they redid my fronts to the least offset. The rear inside wheels had the medium offset and the rear outside, the most. So yes, I have ALL 3 offsets.

    No rubbing at all on the 2017, if you trim a bit of plastic on the inside top of the front mudflaps 1" x 2" long. I did it with the tires on the truck with the wheels turned, used a small hacksaw blade holder, took 20 seconds a side. These are the most tire and wheel you'll get on an F450 without lifting or clearance issues.

    Say "Hi" to Heather for me, I'm Stuart Robinson.

    Hi there. Love your truck. I just got a '17 F450 Platinum and was looking at the Toyo 608 285s on 7.5" wheels. Rickson responded that they have to build three different offset wheels. Question if you don't mind - did you get three different offset wheels, or did they build all six the same? Any issues with the offsets you have? Thanks. Was going ahead with order tonight, but happened to see your truck and was interested in your experience before I order.
    Thanks for your thoughts,
