yes those will work. without them you run the risk of having the wheel not centered on the hub correctly and experiencing vibrations at high speeds.

You have already been given help... The hub rings you posted are correct. You won't rub if you're on stock suspension. It will probably look goofy though with poke like that and 4" of gap.

Couldn't say for sure. I'd put money on you rubbing. Mine rub ever so slightly and I'm .6" lower than you. If you go with narrower tires and pull your fenders you might be fine. I strongly doubt it'll fit without modification if you have 235's on there.

I don't know what you're looking at. I'm telling you that I'm .6" lower than stock with a +20 offset. I have 225's and rub mildly. If you want to go down 1.5" you're going to need modifications to something and significantly narrower tires. If you think they'll fit then go ahead and buy them. It's only $350.

I was hoping to stay stock, which would be even better with the fitment and no rub. Got a picture of yours?

Stock should be fine. I can't say for sure how yours would look being higher but having wider tires. I don't have any pictures on my current setup but ill snap one tomorrow morning and post up for you.

I think they are 8" wide if I'm correct. He sent me some pictures of the rashes on them. Can't tell if I even want to pay $350 for that,, he just have let salt eat at it a bit
