37s on factory wheels or find wheels that will hold up to salt in the winter

I'm thinking about a 4.5in lift with either 35s or 37s but I was thinking about keeping the factory wheels or finding a chrome wheel that will hold up to salt in the winter time. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

My Thoughts are " He should keep that new truck In the Garage and find a beater to drive in the winter months" J/K

I find that most factory wheels are easier to clean and hold there finish better

With 37" tires you will prolly have to just pick up a Cheap aftermarket wheel 9 or 10" wide to fit the tire...Thats what i would do,buy some el cheap-o chromes and spray them down with WD40 and let the Good time roll

Yeah I wish I could not drive it. My dads got a 450 pickup that never moved last winter we drove my 6.0 but now mine will probably get driven. We plow snow so we have dump trucks but I don't wanna be in one of those everyday. And I figured the factory wheels would be much easier. And not to be a dick but I'm not gonna put cheap chrome wheels on a $64k truck. I had them and they pitted bad on my 6.0

If your going to do a 4.5" lift, def do the 37's b/c the 35's will look tiny. I had 37's on my stock 08 20" wheels no problems. They have plenty guys running the 37's on a stock 20: rim.

Ok thanks. I'm probably gonna do the carli 2.0 kit once I get the money and I like the factory kr wheels so I will probably go 37s. Hopefully they wont rub

im running the carli 2.0 coil over conv and clears 37's easily, as for the wheels i find the coated XD wheels last well in the salt and junk and can be had for relatively cheap. i got a set of 17" steels i will run with 37" cooper discovery SST's thought about powder coating them gray or lime green just for ****s n giggles for the winter as i F'd the finish on my current bmfs already and the need to be cut and cleared.

Ok thanks. I don't know if coated wheels would look real good on a bronze truck but who knows. So your bmfs pitted from salt? Where they black or chrome?

the wheels were scratched from mud and sand, and they got a haze.
