    Bear with me ... I am a weight weenie

    - Titan7 T-AK1: Two wheels came in at 20.6 pounds & the other two at 20.7 pounds
    - Duratracs (315/70/17 & D rated): 62.15, 62.15, 62.05 & 60.95 pounds
    - Titan7 T-AK1 w/Duratracs: 83 (3.25oz to balance), 84.2 (1.5oz), 84.2 (4oz) and 84.35 (2.75oz) pounds
    - OEM wheels/tires: 95, 94.9, 95.55 & 94.7 pounds
    - OEM Lug-nuts: 4.65 pounds
    - Spline Lug-nuts: 2.55 pounds

    So weight savings per corner is 10ish pounds and then a little but more with the lug nuts.

    And I went with metal valve stems >> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NJ5JRL8/?tag=fordraptorforum-20

    Wheel specs:
    - 17x8.5
    - 6x135
    - Offset -1 and hub-centric
    - load rating 2200 pounds
    - No center caps. Titan7 never intended to release center caps BUT they have received complaints so ETA for center caps is December. Let's see if this really happens. And because they don't have center caps, I had to prep my center hubs as in remove the rust and then I primed them. I think I will buy G2 caliper paint and paint my hubs.
    - OEM lugs will not work with these wheels. You will need spline driven lug-nuts

    They are beautiful in person. Pics don't do them justice. A classic design with a modern build. In person they have concavity and they are a deep dish wheel with a deep lip. The inner cut outs (the edge) are not painted but exposed raw aluminum (clear coated) which you can't see unless you are up close.

    The Satin Titanium color has a hint of blue to it which goes well with PB.

    And can I feel the weight difference? YES! Ever had 4 guys in your Raptor and a full gas tank? And then one day you are alone in your truck with an empty tank and your truck feels peppy? The wheels def spins up quicker and hauls ass.

    And at -1 there is alot of poke (see pics below). I ran Duratracs on my GEN1 (with Methods at 0 offset) so I am very familiar with these tires and the poke. Duratracs are a great all around tire and have the look of a MT tire but they are an AT tire. They are really good in the wet and fantastic in the snow.

    At full lock I am getting a very slight rub with this setup.

    Whoa those are light as hell! Those do look really good and I like it. That -1 offset though is a huge deal breaker for me since I refuse to lose suspension travel. Maybe if I was running glass.....

    Agreed! If you plan to go through the full suspension travel then you need to stay on stock offset. Or run bigger fenders

    I have a FPB Screw just like you and those in bronze would be amazing. If they had even a +24 I'd be all over them.

    Seems like all the wheel manufacturers are going for those super low offsets with very little for us that want to off road without doing fenders.
