I finally got my Centerlines and Nittos. :teethmast I went a little different route from several others here. I went with the Centerline Champ XL (Style 203) instead of the Stingray III (Style 201). The only difference is that the 203 has round holes instead of the 201's rounded triangular holes. I prefer the round hole look over spoke look.

I got the 17x8. It has 5" backspacing and weighs only 20 lbs. The Centerline part number is 203_7806_656. The tire is the Nitto Terra Grappler in 295/70R17. Fit, ride, look, etc. is great.

I got them from a local Discount Tire. Cost was $1778 + tax. This includes lifetime road hazard replacement, flat repairs and balancing on them, plus all new lug nuts (required) and locks.

A side note is that the tire pressure sensors did not fit without leaking slightly. The hole cut on the new wheels was just slightly different than the factory. We tried it twice but could not get it leak free, so no more pressure sensors for me.

Oh, and I pulled off my factory side step rails. They just did not seem to go with the wheels. Plus it makes the truck look higher without them.

Right on - they look great. I had a heck of a time getting one of my wheel sensors not to leak, finally got it to work after ordering replacement rubber valve stem seals.

I had some centerlines from Discount tire on John Young parkway in Orlando. We got the valve to stop leaking with a new rubber grommet instead of stock one. They were thicker and worked perfectly. They got them off a metal valve stem they sell. Might want to ask them to look at the different stems they sell and they will probably have something that will work. Ask for Tyler of Jerry and tell them you want the same grommets they used on mine.

Hey Mike H,

Did you find a way to disable the low pressure tire light or just live with the light and audible reminder? :huh:

Very nice - great shot - http://www.titantalk.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=4542 !

What hood protector is that on your Titan? Like that width - how it looks.
Thanks. The protector is a Stampede, but I don't recommend it. Seems cheap and like it is starting to warp. It will be replaced in the future.

I don't get the audible. It does not sound off since the system detects an error. (Missing or uncoded sensor.) It has not worked since I had put on those temporary SE wheels, since they were not coded to my truck. I never went in and had that done. I'll live with the light. I don't care for the system, because there are times you might want to air down (such as off road).

Just my 2cents. The place on John Young didnt charge me a thing to change out grommets. At least that way you would only have light when you air down. Dealership here reset the code for free when I did an oil change.

I didn't have to reset mine, they just put them in the new rims, they are working great. They did have the thicker grommets if they started to leek but havn't had a problem as of yet. Sorry to hear they didn't work for you.

Mike H, looking good. How do you like the ride with the Nittos? What about the level lift from PRgreg?

Rides great. As far as the lift, I'm doing it now. (In the A/C for a break and drink.) What a PITA that has been! For the first time in my life I broke a socket. 19mm. More on that later.......

MODS (or E-cool): Oops, I screwed up. I should have posted this thread under the Tires, Wheels, Brakes section. (I forgot it was there.) If you can move it over there with little effort please do.

I had a hell of a time getting one of my sensors to seal after I replaced wheels also. Since it was before the TSB on the air leak issue and I really don't care to visit the stealer, I asked the techs at Discount Tire to put a little clear waterproof silicone around the rubber seat of the sensor.

Worked like a charm.

Is a real pain to remove the factory steps? I have the same truck and am thinking of removing them
Not at all, and it is easy to put them back on, which I have already done, after modding them. Stay tuned.....
