Default Help me pick some wheels!!!

Guys,

It's like pulling teeth trying to figure out which wheels I want for my truck, so I am going for some help! I kind of wanted some 18's as I donT like to follow along with all the rave of the 20's but I will go 20's as well. I use this truck and like to drive on dirt roads so I don't want them sticking way out!

Chrome, black. What ever.....

I'm looking for that bad a$$ work truck look.

Let's see your opinions!

If you don't want them to stick out to far get a 20x9 with close to a zero offset. Most 20x10 have -20 or more offset and they will stick out. I run 17x8 with a +1 offset and they stick out about 1". I run a 285/70/17 which is alittle bigger then a 33 and I had a hell of a time getting them to stop rubbing. Tires were fine on the stock wheel but rubbed like crazy on the new wheels. Next time I'm going down a size since I don't want to crank up the bars

I'm alwasys a fan of Methods. They're strong and look good. I'm also not a fan of super big wheels. Once my tires wear out again I'll be ordering a set.

That's probably all I will ever run! I ran some 305-50-20 before and they were just to frican wide. I'll stick to the 285 width and around the 33 inch tall. So a 18x9 or a 20x9 will be my choice. I just don't know what would look good

I never seen them wheels before, I'll be looking through them. They look rugged.

Google image search “chase truck” and check out those rims. I like the fuel one piece rims, the anza series.

What about these ? Kind of follows the theme of the truck? Looks pretty sweet

I just bought these recently... 18x9 +10 offset Ultra "Machine" wheels and Cooper A/T3 265/70-18 tires. They are right around 33". I had to trim the front plastic valance a little and turned my t-bars up about 1-1.5" to get them to not rub. But I love the look and the tires seem pretty good so far.

X2 I have Method the standards in black and really like them, I will get a pic and post it. I have the 18x9 -12 offset with 285/65/18s and the fit great.

I was surprised how light the set up was too.

For a clean look I like Soto AWOL or more aggressive XD Misfits.

Best place I’ve seen to look for deals is custom offsets. You can choose exactly what size you want and they’ll show you what they have.
