Question AE w/FORD or 35" Tires w/ 16.5x12 Aluminum Rims?

If you had to pic one or the other, which would you pick?

AE = $370

Rims/Tires = $350-400. (Tires about 50% tread)

So???

Lol, I know, just jossin ya!

You are one of the more helpful members...maybe thats part of the problem... I have folks like you guys on here that make me feel like I don't need the AE!

On the other hand tho, It appears the cheapest place to get the AE w/ FORD package is here.... anyone know anywhere cheaper?

AE pays for its self very quickly if you break your truck as often as I do.
