planning on running stock wheels, pricewise and for where I live(gravel) I think chrome rims would be a waste since they would cost alot more and rarely be clean enough to appreciate. (not a fan of ALL black wheels either.)
had a set of Eagle 20" wheels picked out (Eagle 064b Polished and Superfinished Black rims) that I was gonna get a great deal on, but they were 20x10 wheels with a 4.6" backspacing....basically sticking the tires and wheels out 4-6" from the side of the truck, and without 4-6" or lift or more, I think it looks "off."
I've talked to several people about 35/12.50/17's on stock rims and gotten mixed answers, but most everybody has told me I gotta get aftermarket rims with correct backspacing, width, and offset(or somin like that) to make em fit....or they're gonna rub with stock rims.
I did see an '05 F350 local that had 35/13.50/18 Pro Comp tires with a leveling block on top of the coils on his truck. 1st time I talked to him he said he had NO rubbing issues and this was his second set of tires, but he had just put these on recently (a month) and had 35/12.50/18's on before (showed me the front tires with 40,000 miles)......and I noticed a place on the radius arm(??? arm from the frame to the axle) where the tires (not sure if just the new ones or the old ones as well) had rubbed the paint completely off a 1.5" wide area. I LOVED how the truck looked and sat up, but I dont wanna deal with that rubbing he's dealing with.
I can't find 20" rims how I need em for a price I would consider paying, I dont wanna blow money on rims unless they are at least 20's so buying 17's to fit tires is out, and I drive a minimum of an hour one way/everyday(schools moving another 20-30 min. away in january too!)......thats why I'm thinkin All Terrain tires may be better for me(mileage life, road noise, road conditions,.....).
I was lookin at Lift Kits, Tires & Wheels by 4 Wheel Parts
and they're having free shipping on tires, and 10% off on tires, leaving 295/70/17 nitto terra grapplers at $161/tire! Which I thought was insane! I gotta call em on 305/70/17 tires, theres only 9/10" difference in height and some width difference, but the 305's are E rated, and the 295's are D rated....and they dont show the 305's on their website. I was really hoping the 305 tires were closer to that price than the $285+ I see for all the mud terrain tires I've looked at.
