Moto Metal 951 Rims

Does anyone have Moto Metal 951 Rims on their Excursion? A friend just put some on his Jeep and I think they'd look good on my Ex...

Wife wants to see a picture before we commit to anything. I'd be looking to do 16" or 18" wheels. Figure with 16's, I could keep my Geolanders that are damn near new...18's would mean new tires, and i'm not ready to take out that loan yet.

Also, any recommendations on minimum back-spacing? The MO951's are at a -12 offset with 4.53" backspacing. Is that enough for a 4x4 Ex without a lift?

We had moto metal 955's and they started to pit after only 4 months of living in New England's weather. We returned them and got the Cannons. Just another option to think about.

Well, MO951's are out now...took my wife's car in to get new tires on Saturday and left Discount Tire with a set of MB Stryker's. Wife picked them out and wouldn't let me leave without 'em. I think they look damn good on the rig and don't regret letting her talk me into them.
