I love the look of 17's but the extra price is just to much for me

Yeah they are definitely pricey. But I'll be running 37s on 3/4 ton axles so for aluminum wheels I pretty much have to run 17's to clear the dual piston calipers. If I did some grinding on the caliper I could fit 16s but the tire sizes for 37s are really limited on that rim size. 16.5's are out of the equation for me haha

Every time I've gone to a tire shop I didn't need an appointment to mount and balance tires. Just for things like alignments and what not

Yeah that would be awesome! Getting new rims is exciting. I remember the day I mounted my rims and 31" tires back when I was 16 and thought it was the coolest thing ever lol

Well kind of a mix match, plan is 2" coil spacers(poly ones from fat bobs) and belltech 6400's in the rear then some extended shocks to handle the lift

Not a chance, I literally just got my 30's a few months ago, and I've seen the exact set up with 235/75r15's and it looks really awesome

And yes..I'm basically coping this ranger haha

If i didn't have new 30's I'd defiantly consider 31's although I like my power and mpg as it sits(4:10 gears, 24mpg last tank) and i defiantly stole many ideas from that Ranger

P.S rims will be on Thursday evening
