    Trimming the liner and the fender flare corner was easy, getting into the pinch weld would be a day project though.

    I *drove* home on the 37's prior to throwing in the perch collar. It was an interesting 60 mile trip from the shop to home. lol.

    What finish did you go with?

    Rays does not plan on offering a 17” for the Raptor. The Te37xt (following the now discontinued Te37x) are a step lip design in which the face it self is smaller, anything smaller or tighter will not fit or clear components.

    Are you guys running the OEM tpms? If so I'm assuming you dont use the Rays valve stems that come with the Volks.

    I didnt install the tpms sensor on my XT’s. Just using the Rays stem (personal preference of mine to use the rays stem)

    On my gramlights, I used the complete oem valve core + sensor on the wheel. The rays valve stem does not accept the tpms sensor.

    edit: TPMS / Rubber stem do fit the Te37xt.

    But I could use the OEM rubber valve stems with TPMS on the XT's just like the oem wheel.

    Correct, the OEM rubber stems + TPMS sensors mount up to the XT like any other wheel with no problem. I personally just wanted to use the rays valve stem on the XT.

    Just reworded my previous message, reread it and I confused myself a bit lol.

    Awesome thanks!

    By chance do you know which rays center caps are available for the XT's? And how much you can get them for

    The large PCD (112mm center bore) from the Toyota te37x / te37xt does not fit the 6x135 (or jeep 5x127) Te37xt's.

    Rays produced x3 total different center bores within the XT line up. Currently working with Rays to finalize completion of the center caps for the 6x135 - Raptor

    These are the center caps for the 6x139.7 / 5x150 xt’s

    Theyre quite large, and are mounted from behind the wheel. Given the smaller diameter of the raptor spec xt, these can’t be mounted.
