What will it look like?

I'm debating on getting 17" or 18" wheels. I have 18" steel wheels now, but I will save almost 300 bucks by going to a 17" wheel and tire combo vs 18" wheels and tires.

Will 1" make a difference in the look, while using stock tire dimension tires? Truck is in sig, if that makes a difference

TIA

I dont know what to tell you but we can sent it to the top for more ideas. I just got a set of 18's and took off the 17's. I like the look of both. I just needed a wider wheel. I am thinking of selling my 17's if you are interested. Aluminum with like 10 holes around outside, 7.5" wide. Save you even more money.

You'll notice a size difference between 17 and 18.

what are your goals with your truck???

if your trying to make it look real good..
i would save the money and get some 18's or bigger

but everyone has there own opinion most of the offroader guys
like smaller rims with lots of rubber.

I think you're right. I have been thinking about this quite a bit, and 18's with General Grabber AT's is what I'm getting. It's going to be one sexy azz truck

Now if I could just figure out how to get those fake POS Putco chrome door handles and mirror covers off. I think I'm going to have to buy them

See, the problem is that I'd be going from 18's to 17's, and you can't take them back after they've been mounted. I just think that if I'm going to spend $1500 on tires and wheels, that I DO NOT want to regret it every time I get in my truck

I'm going to keep the stock size tire, and get some AT tires for a beefier look, and MUCH better traction than these POS Conti's
These are the wheels
