Put these AR910s in black with the machined faces on my 2010 F-150 along with new Michelin LTX AT/2 tires in OEM 275/65/18 size. The tires mounted fine with no rubbing at full lock forward or backward. The new tires, however, do stick out just a bit more than the OEM tires, which I was expecting and actually like, mostly due to the AR 910s being 9" wide while the OEM rims are 7.5" I believe. The truck looks more aggressive and more off-road with the partially black rims and all terrain tires vs the highway tires it came with (Goodyear Wrangler SRAs). As I have the chrome package on my F-150, I opted for the machined faces to pick up the chrome trim on the truck and they look good together.
One item of note is that you get a deep wall 13/16" sock with the rims and lug nuts. The only issue I had was that the socket required a 3/8" drive and I snapped off two 1/2" to 3/8" adapters trying to torque down the luck nuts. the 3/8" drive just doesn't have enough meat on it to properly torque the wheel nuts. I have heavy duty sockets that I use with my air wrench, but they are too thick to fit on the lugs and clear the rim edge. So, I had to go to the store and get a 13/16" deep wall socket with a 1/2" drive that was no larger than the one supplied with the tires. American Racing, or TR (whoever supplies the socket) should have supplied a 1/2" drive with the lugs, not 3/8". Also, keep in mind you'll need to keep the socket and a 1/2" drive breaker bar in your truck for emergency tire changes. Also, I put 6 of the old lugs in the truck in case I need to mount the spare. The old lugs have a much larger flare on them than the ones supplied with the wheels, so I'm pretty sure the spare will need the old lugs if mounted.
Other than that, I love the wheels, tires and new more aggressive look of the truck without having to add a lift/level kit. TR did a great job of balancing the tires as they road smooth on a 1,200 mile trip we took shortly after mounting them
