    I finally put my lift on and was going to put on American Racing type 23 rims. They are lug centric rims and fit, BUT there is less thread engagement than the factory rims (seems like it was 6-7 threads vs 9-10). I know the rule of thumb is 1x stud diameter,but I'm a little paranoid. So, whats everyone opinion.

    1. Plenty safe to use
    2. Sell AR's and put tires on factory rims.

    Thanks
