    BR - I looked into this. The problem with steel wheels is twofold.
    First, according to everyone that I spoke with, nobody makes an 18". Second, the offset is way off. The 'lug mounting plane' is usually recessed quite a bit from the face of the wheel. That creates an interference with the caliper. I'd LOVE to find a steel wheel that would fit... but no luck so far.

    Hey Hey Hey!!!

    Looking good! That path looks familiar!

    I have to admit, the powder coating/black thing seems to be working well with the Vesuvius!

    Thanks for the kind words guys!
    What an ordeal this has been, but I think it turned out really well. The 20"/LTZ combo looks fantastic; time will tell how durable it is offroad.
    Paul- Maybe this looks familiar too? Notice my neighbor in the background... they're making some headway! I'm not even done with the architectural stuff yet.



    Jimballz - Yeah, 285/50-20 Cooper LTZ. Not sure where you're from, but you'll have to make the next group run. Take her for a spin!

    DJ - Yup, factory 20's. I've got the 22" replicas for the street... But since getting my new 20" setup, I've yet to put my 22's back on. There is a PHX LR club run coming up in 2 weeks, so I'll probably just leave the 20's on until that. I really like being able to pop curbs and whatnot!

    Later tonight I'll post an FYI thread with some more pics.

    Wow, that looks badass, I absolutely love it. I predict your 22s will be collecting dust for a long time. You need a spare to match, isn't that stock 19 kinda puny compared to those 20s?

    Oh...very nice!!! I love the tread pattern on those tires...looks like some sort of pre-historic dinosaur scales!

    Your neighbors are going to be jealous! You won't even need a driveway anymore in your architectural plans!!! Just some rock climbing over that little section there...Tires look really great, nice articulation!

    More pictures!

    Haha, thanks!

    Yeah, crazy as it sounds... I *am* actually designing in a rock wall driveway section. Crazy steep, just like the test track at the dealership. It'll look like some cosmetic landscaping wall, until I use it to scare unsuspecting passengers!

    Umberto... already have a 5th Stormer enroute. Think it'll fit underneath?
