yes. I used my stock TPMS sensors. The inflator valve the TPMS is attached to is the same usual valve used everywhere, it just has a red cap over it to protect it from rocks.

Was researching the Nomad wheels and found this thread. I like the look and the fast air down but I’m still confused about the offset and recently had a conversation about it with TeraFlex:

When researching a lift & wheels for my truck a while back I came across this article:
516879CE-1F7E-42BA-8624-683166F9087D.jpeg

Article found at this link:
https://www.thurenfabrication.com/tech/tire-and-wheel-fitment.html

What is being described by Thuren makes sense. What is being described by TF does not (8.5” wheel at 0” offset = 4.75” backspace). If the mounting flange of the wheel is at a 0” offset it should be at the centerline of the wheel. If the wheel is 8.5” wide 8.5/2=4.25....

Any help in me understanding would be appreciated.

The offset is 0 with a 4.75" backspace, the specs are figured on the overall rim width and not the mounting flange.

Excellent write up thank you!
THIS makes the math work:
“First - add 1" to the rim width and then divide by 2 to find the wheels center line (you have to account for the wheel flange which is why you add 1" to the rim width)”
