Wicked wheel question????

Ok, so i have a question, How do I know if i have a wicked wheel before i start ripping it apart? I bought the truck with a 4" turbo back MBRP exhaust withe a 5" tip. It has a very loud whistel to me to be a stock wheel? Im planning on ripping into it soon just want to know if I wasted money buying a wheel if I already have one? How do I figgure it out?

I have a stock wheel with a 4" mbrp turbo back straight pipe. It makes some pretty good whistle out of the tail pipe. I still have the stock intake so not really any more whistle heard in cab. But with the windows down it can be heard really well out of the exhaust. Hope this helps!

Mine does the same thing so what your saying is it may be a "Stock" wheel?

Is it surging? That's probably the only way you could tell without taking anything apart...

easy way to tell.
take off the first part of the intake tube and look down and count the blades on the wheel.
a stock wheel will have 9 blades.
the WW will have 10 blades.
