new here..and have a few questions

hey guys...new here..i have a 2002 f250 4x4 and im looking to get some shinny new rims and tires on her

ive kinda narrowed my selection down to the nitto mud grapplers and i can get some Mamba rims pretty cheap (like around 150 or so a peice) from a local tire shop here...im gonna go with 17 inch rims and prolly 35s

my question is..is there a back spacing and offset number i need to stick with?
i ran into that problem with my Titan..dont wanna do it again

and if it matters im putting in a rough country 6 inch lift also..cause they are damn cheaper than everyone else..and i had one in my titan and it seemed to be good

o and im also going with a exhuast and intake and prolly a tuner...which do u all like..im thinking the AFE stage 2..and no idea on the exhaust yet really..i want something thats gonna sound good and look good (duals to) and i dont know much about the tuners..dont wanna spend a fortune..just a decent one..i hear edge is decent?..


thanks for any info and help..sorry for such a long post..i really need the help and fast though! haha..thanks!
John

Piss on edge. DP or TW for the tuner. Save yourself the cash and do a DIY intake for a 1/3 the $$$.

Oh and welcome to the org!

You also don't need a new exhaust unless yours is rotted out. Just replace the factory muffler with a straight flow one like the Walker BTM, that is where the biggest restriction is, not in the size of the plumbing. I know this goes against the popular mods, but it is 100% true, look at my sig!!

Here is the DIY intake info
DIY Intake

The vendors sell the DP and TW chips here so just call and talk to them. DP uses jody's tunes and TW stands for tony wildman who also does the tunes.

If yours is shot you might as well buy a 4" system, as they are cheaper than the 3.5" because so many companies make them.
DP = DPtuner
TW= Tony Wildman

If your gonna upgrade the exhaust, and add a tuner....GAUGES!!!! <- are a must have! You dont want things getting to hot. Another small 'mod'...checkout NCHornet's CCV mod. Its well worth the $$$.
