Wheels chosen for Carli Pintop

I have decided after 3 weeks of looking at wheels day and night (wife is about to choke me)... Fuel Hostages. I know you guys have said if I want to run 9" wide wheels and 37s, I should go with a 5" BS. Will a 20x10 work with 4.5" BS or do I need to get that 20x10 in a 5" BS with the Carli kit?

I am soooo ready to stop looking at wheels... I feel like an addict.

Thanks guys!
Tim

It depends on the tire size you want to run. If you do the 10" wide wheel the most you can fit is a 35" tire, if you do a 9" wide wheel then you can run 37's. If you go to a bigger lift in the 6"-8" range then you should be able to run a 10" wide wheel and 37x13.50. but caril doesnt make lifts that big

I was all decided on the 20x9 until I went to the store. I saw a truck with 20s and 35s and it did not look good at all. I plan to go with 37s, but it would be nice to be able to go to 35s in the future if I so choose... without looking like a mall crawler.

Now I am back to thinking an 18... this is horrible. It is supposed to be fun and it isn't at all. How do you guys pick your wheels?

You can't go wrong with Fuel's. I just put a set on my wifes JK Jeep. I would stay with the 20's though imo. Bigger wheels look right on bigger trucks.

I picked my wheels and tires then found a lift that would work around them lol!
I started of leveled with 20x9 and 35's but keep wanting a bigger tire and wheel so I went 20x10 and 4.5" with 35's and then 37's on the same lift and rubbed like crazy so I went to a 7".

Like was said, it's been trial and error for most of us. We picked some wheels and then some tires and then figured out how to stuff them under the truck. I think I looked for about a year before I finally found something I liked.

i would first asses what you want....end goal. you have already chosen CARLI for a reason....quality,, and more likely ride. why ruin it with a large diameter wheel ???? go with an 18" select the tire, and get what you paid for, a system that rides great and is trouble free in all aspects. you run a 10" wheel , large tire , big wheel and now you have so so ride, your tire rubs when turning, and if you wheel it, you are going to think you just tore the fender off.

Good point! All the Carli guys say to stick with a 17 or 18, not a 20, and i think they have proven that they know what they are talking about.

So the problem here is that the 37" Toyo for the 18" wheel is only D rated... The most I will pull with this is a a stuck Chevy, so I am probably ok.

Stick with a 9" wide wheel and go for a 17" or a 20" as I would rather see the e-rating than the additional 2" of sidewall on the 18. You don'/t want to get death wobble and running D-Rated tires is notorious for causing death wobble. the 37" on 20" wheels still leave sufficient sidewall to supplement the ride of our systems. If you were going 35" I'd tell you to go to 17"/18".
