22.5" Alcoa's

So I am looking to put these 22.5'" Alcoa Classic Hand Hole on my truck. I am doing some investigating and went up to the Int'l dealer yesterday. There are several fifferent sizes that they can come in. I don't know if I need the 22.5" x 7.5" or the 22.5" x 8.25". And I also can't decide on tires. I was thinkin' the Michelin XZE's but also like a little more beef in the back. Anyone have any suggestions??

I have seen a lot of Michelin's wrapped around those Alcoas. Great rubber. They'll look fantastic on your truck!

22.5 x 8.25.
i have run michelin XD2's 255/70/22.5 for 3 years now. that is the best tire in the business. i just lifted my truck from a 4" to 6" now and i plan on running a 275/70 for a little more size. the XD2 has a great beefy tread pattern. unfortunately they dont make a 275 in that style. probably going to run a goodyear G288. Toyo makes a decent tire in that size too. i think its an MY507?

if you plan on running super singles your going to want a 385 or 425 tire and 10" of lift might be cutting it close. thats almost a 44" tall tire.

good luck. you will love the Alcoa's. nothing looks better.

pro-comp springs with bilstein shocks. dual shocks at all four corners now. good shocks are key to running these wheels and tires.

i would go to a local tire shop that deals in medium truck tires. ask around because they dont put these tires on with a machine. it's by hand with a breaker bar. you want someone that will take good care of your wheels while they are fighting that tire on. make sure you go with a good tire. dont go cheap. the ride will suffer.

I don't think I can do coils because I have an '04. I am looking to smooth the ride out, and have heard the bilstein 5100's will help. But I have leafs, so I don't see how. Any suggestions?
