tires and wheels.

ugh this sucks, reason being, i need some new rubber, we have snow and ice on the ground now and i just spin, granted everyone does but mine are pretty worn down.

also i cannot decide if i want to get some black wheels to go along with some new rubber..i think my truck would look "Sinister" with the right black wheel!!!

Question is, how big of wheels do you guys think i can run with my 4' lift???


link for some black wheels,
XD Series 795

I wouldnt think so. i cleared 35 on stock rims, with just a leveling kit on my 04 i had. Just make sure you get the correct back spacing. or they will rub.

Something to think about (perhaps) bigger tires can wear out suspension stuff faster...

I gotta get some new tires too...my lifted truck looks goofy with the 35's on it...plus the tires on there now hydroplane like a biotch, not safe....gotta find something more streetable!

Stroker, your truck would look sick with the black XD Hoss wheels. I'm thinking about putting those on my rig (after I put my leveling kit on this week), but I'm not sure if black would look that great with a two-toned truck (I also like the bronze color). Still might do it just to be a little different. I also like the black DC-1 wheel. I'll probably go with a 16X8 because my Toyo MT's only have around 14k on them and I'm not ready to drop another $1k for tires that still look new.

You can blacken the wheels you have already. That way you can leave a liitle chrome on the outside of the rim. Thats what I'm thinking about doin. Just using a flat black or my spray on bed liner has a sic texture. Just a thought.
