That's awesome, can't wait to see them on those Ridglines! If you don't mind telling, what is the price per tire price (before taxes, mounting & balancing) in your neck of the woods?

Here in North Carolina they go for $215 each at Discount Tire. At least they have the $100 rebate. Funny they have a price match guarantee and I told them my buddy StevenD the Super Moderator of the Passport Forum got all 4 for $600! He just laughed and said well you ain't no SteveD. 🤣

Success! Steven, I'm glad you posted this thread because it's what swayed me to the Continentals over the Nitto's ! Really happy with the look and the ride quality. The only thing I would do different is have gone with a 20% gloss on the powder coating as opposed the 40%. But, I'm still a happy camper and new center caps should be in by Friday! (y)

Looking great GB, the black wheels go great with your PP color, very nice contrast! I really like that color and if I had to choose all over again....

Finally pulled the trigger on them, the American Tire Depot made me an incredible offer, that was just too good to pass up:
View attachment 6698

The tires are Continental TerrainContact AT, 265R60/18, Tire Rack sells them for $215 ($860 for 4), I got them for $600 for all 4!

View attachment 6699

They are supposedly 1" taller than the OEM Tires/Wheels, but still looks like plenty of clearance (Clarence)!

View attachment 6700

They deeply discounted the Wheels as well! They are Black Rhino "Arches", 18x8" with a 30mm Offset. I ordered the Brushed Aluminum colored wheels, but they look much darker than on the website, they look almost black (I saw the boxes but still wonder if black wheels didn't get mixed in somehow(?), but they are a dark gray which matches my body color just fine. I like these wheels, as the guys in the neighborhood with the big-boy trucks all have ones that have the hex-bolt heads around the outside, like these do, I think it gives it the rugged look I was after...

View attachment 6701

The 30mm Offset is approx. 1" MORE than the OEM wheels, but since the Width of the Arches wheels are 1/2" thinner (8.0" vs 8.5"), they barely stick out. (Check out my Pavers Driveway, it's gray of course....)

View attachment 6702

Rear Tires/Wheel view, looking straight down, again barely sticks out! (Like my Merrell Sandals with socks? my wife hates this look...)

Now I have only driven about 20 miles on the set-up so far, I can tell the difference when I hit minor bumps as the taller sideway abosrbs the impact better. I'll give some more updates as I get more miles on them, but feel free to ask anything about them....
Steven, Any rubbing at full lock? Or in reverse?

Hello stevenD. Thanks for posting your wheel and tire setup. With your new setup, do you think snow cables(chains) would snag or rub?

Good question, but I really don't know and won't have a chance to find out, living in Southern California, but according to Tire Rack the tires perform quite well in snow...

Hi Steven, im new to the forum and i really like your wheel and tire setup. Im planning to get same wheels and slightly smaller tires 255/60r18 but its really hard to find a tire in this size except for the nittos. Now im leaning on getting it on 265/60r18 due to its availability. The BR Arches have +30 offset and that might help with the rubbing issues of the 265s. Now my question is, do you have any rubbing at full lock of the steering wheel? Either forward or in reverse? Thanks in advance!

I noticed there is slight rubbing when FULLY turned, but I rarely do a tight radius U-turn, so it it not an issue, so with a regular U-Turn there is NO rubbing!

Are you using hub rings for the wheels? Just bought some Black Rhino Barstows but they didn’t come with hub rings.

Yes, you need hub rings, they don't come with the wheels, have to be bought separately..

Mind posting a link to which ones you bought?

I'm sorry, my installer took care of them, I didn't get a part number, but you can probably contact a tire/wheel store...
