I have done extensive research on the site due to interest in new rims/tires. I pretty much have my heart set on the KMC KM775 Rockstar rims. Shown here- http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/WheelCloseUpServlet?gclid=Cj0KEQiAxMG1BRDFmu3P3qjwmeMBEiQAEzSDLslGCOaoMEKMPF6cZev1P6GuzIH-IytnU6YZFTrFIt4aAs4k8P8HAQ&target=runWheelSearch&wheelMake=KMC&wheelModel=KM775+Rockstar+Car&wheelFinish=Black+Painted&initialPartNumber=KM77577531742B&GCID=C13674x012-wheel&KEYWORD=wheels_KMC_KM775_Rockstar_Car_Black_Painted_Wheels&code=yes&autoMake=Mazda&autoModel=CX-9&autoYear=2010&autoModClar=Touring+FWD&checkVehicle=&src=17540115&ci_sku=KM77577531742B&ci_sku=KM77577531742B&ci_src=17588969&ef_id=VMBkpQAABOqCmFDA:20160203022953:s

I have done my homework on the whole load rating of rims vs. the stock rim rating. These KM775's have load rating of 1,580lbs. Is this sufficient enough for the ridge? My gut says no, but my heart says yes haha. The most towing/hauling I ever do is two motorcycles in the bed. I would be going with the 18x8 and a pretty meaty tire. I have seen people say that 1,600lb and up rating is what is normal. Would the 20-70 lb less rating be threatening. I noticed one member is running RPF1's at one point and after some research I gathered their load rating is roughly 1,520 lbs. Am I over thinking this and should just go for it?

I don't see any reason why you couldn't use them. I personally prefer oem wheels on all of my Hondas but that's just me. I am pretty disappointed in the lack of wheel options out there for us. I'd like to see a classic d-window for off road tires. The RL gets no love in the off-road community.
