Thank you for the kind responses. The rims are MB motoring Razors. They are from Discount Tire. There was a store a couple cities away from me that had these new in the box sitting around for a while and where advertising them in the local ads for $65 per rim. I had a co-worker who lived there pick them up and went to a local Discount Tires. I had them match an online price for the Nittos. I'm very happy with the deal I got and happy with the looks.
The ride home seemed solid. The road noise was much much quieter than the old ones. I did some full turns and went through some dips and it doesn't appear like I have any rubbing issues. I'm going to drive it to work a few times this week (it isn't my daily driver) to make sure all is all right before I tow my toy hauler camping over Labor Day weekend.

Dana 60 SAS, stage 1 160cc injectors, T500 High Pressure Oil Pump, TS 6-position chip, full 4" exhaust, intake, 285 Falken Rocky Mountain AT's, boost/EGT/trans temp pillar gauges, etc...
