I bought these with a TireRack complete package including a set of Goodyear Wrangler DuraTracs, pressure sensors (TPMS), metal valve stems, mounted, balanced, etc. The package bolted right on with no issues. The balance job was excellent with no problems with the ride quality. I bought the 18"x9"s and the same stock size of 265/65/18 tires (My Avalanche is the Z71 option.) and the fit is excellent, with no rubbing or clearance issues. Even though the stock wheels are 18x8" with an offset of 31mm, these Gauntlets with the 9" width but a 25mm offset nearly centers the rim in the wheel well. These Ultra Gauntlet wheels have a very matte black finish and are not as glossy/shiny as the TireRack pictures depict, which I love even more. A very black-out look indeed!
So far I'm loving the look, ride, and comfort of these wheels.
