    I have Method NV's on my truck now, and have fought vibration issues because there's no shop near me that can balance them properly (I believe). What's the difference between the 6 offset on the Fuels and the 0 on the Methods? Fuel's aren't going to stick out as far as the Methods? Anyone have Trophies on their trucks and dislike them? Thanks

    Correct. +6 will not stick out as far. Not a huge difference

    Balancing wise, it is a hub centric wheel, so hopefully it solves your balancing issue. I had the same issue on my Methods on my old truck.

    Just find a shop with good balancing machine. I have methods and zero issues with balancing them. But I did get one time a shop rebalance them and it was a nightmare driving over 60 mph. Evidently wrong calibration for balancer would do it.
    Look for a shop with road force balance equipment.

    Roost are hubcentric wheels.

    No. Our bore is 87.1 IIRC. Roost are 87, and NVs are 94 along with most Method wheels.

    I have double standard Methods...but again they take a lot of weight, take forever to balance and no vibration

    I snagged some rings to give them a try. Will update. If they don't fix it, Fuel it is.

    I liked my Mesh/had nothing bad to say about Methods.

    Just sucked I couldn't find anyone to properly balance the tires with the whole hub/lug centric "issue". Trying out some different wheels this go around.
