Considerations in Aftermarket Rims?
So looking at the next huge mod down the road for my F350 Dually, and naturally a more aggressive stance came to mind. So that got me thinking about various wheel / tire sizes, and got me scanning the ORG for insight.
I'm not looking at going crazy with things here, and a few key options keep coming to mind:
For rims, keep the stock 17", or go to a 19.5" direct bolt, or 22.5" with adaptors.
For tires, up to a 33" or 35" tire with spacers if required.
For the suspension, keep stock, install a leveling kit with traction bars, or a full 4" lift with bars.
I still want to tow a heavy gooseneck without an issue, and have a relatively comfortable ride. The idea is if I go to a larger rim, I'll upgrade the brake system accourdingly down the road a ways.
This is still a thinking out loud stage, any feedback is welcomed and encouraged. What worked for you, what didn't, what folks are running, etc.
