I've got Sidebiters too.I like them but they aren't my favorite wheel.The price was right so I'll run them for a few years.

I think ALL BLACK looks very "stealthy"..nice BKO's Guys! .....

I don't see anything "bling" either, though maybe a semi or flat black finish...

What offset are your rims! I'm planning to get them, but don't know what offset to get, these look perfect. BTW... these are far from bringing. They look pretty aggressive. Being is when u get into wider rims. Like 17+ IMHO.

How are they off road? Do they resist cuts from rocks well? Do the side lugs tear off easy? How heavy are they? Ride good on the road? I would like to know a little more about them because I'm thinking about geting away from the TSL's for a better on and off road tire. Love TSL's but they ride prety ruff on the road.

My 15x10's have 3.63" of backspacing, which is about 3 5/8".They stick out a little.

I think the wheels and tires look good on your rig. How are the tires on the road, are they real load? Do they wear pretty good?

Thanks they drive and handle great.

They weren't when they were new, they are kind of loud now that they are worn.

Not really, but mud terrains normally don't.I have 16k miles on them and guesstimating from what I have left for tread I might get 20k out of them.

This may be a dumb question but how much lift do you have? Those are the wheels and tires I want only bronco, but mine isn't lifted, will they rub?

They will prolly rub with a 15x10 rim due to the extra offset (tires sticking out). With 33's and no lift your better off with 15x8 or stock, you don't get that wide stance look though.Mine are 15x8 with 35's and a 4'' lift if you want an idea how a narrower rim looks.

Based on Nasty's Bronco info he has a 4'' lift.

Thanks for the picture, that helps. I see what u mean tho about them sticking out, but It looks great! Is your rig lifted? I've got a 4 in on mine so the little extra wide stance should flow well. I'm thinking about going from 33 to 35 tho.
