which rims? ??

Hey guys im looking at getting some new rims for my 95 and was wondering whats a good aftermarket brand or what do u guys prefere. I want either 16 or 18 not sure if i can put 18s under factory suspension though. And then either 285 or 305 good year wrangler silent armors are going on the rims. Just kinda wanna see what people like.

Unless you plan on lifting the truck, 285's is about the largest you can fit without any trimming or spacing of the bumper. You can get 285's in an 18" wheel as well.

I personally like 16" wheels. I know they are old fashioned, but so are our trucks. Majority of new wheels don't look right on our trucks IMO.

I agree with the previous statement. I think bullet hole wheels look sick on OBS trucks. For God's sake, dont go putting 20's or 22's on it

I'm going to be upgrading my OBS Alcoa wheels this summer with a set of 16x8 Mickey Thompson Classic II's.

Ditto.... How much lift? Did you trim or shim the bumper?
