Wheels for the F250?

I am not in any rush to get some but I would like to have some. So I am just looking at my options and I really think I would like some black wheels on this truck for whatever reason.

I am thinking BMF Novokanes (1) or BMF SOTA (2)

I will have to get new tires before winter, I would like to toss some new wheels on if I can afford it at that time. Plus I am bored, gives me something to look forward to.

If anyone has pictures of a F250 like mine with black wheels post it up! I will probably run a 325/65/20 Toyo Open Country AT I think.

I think so too, only thing I am not sure about is the two tone and dark wheels, the bottom will be really dark.

I think the emblems should be blacked out as well if you do the wheels. Do they make harley heads for the 250 that are darker like the newer 150s have?

edit yeah they do, looks pretty sweet



Just cause this truck looks sweet lol

what i have are 34s or just barely. i want to have a bit wider tire but the next standard size up is 325/65/20, its the most cost effective tire size for these trucks. 325s are 34.8" tires.

I like the wheels I have but with flares they need to stick out just a bit further. 20x9s would be much better for that. Also wheels make the ride IMO, so it will really refresh the truck.

I love those stock wheels. They look **** with a set of 35" BFG AT's on them with the white letters out. That's my vote. Keep the stockers.

oh i like the stockers for sure, i just wish they were in a little bit better shape, pictures make them look awesome, they look great after i wax them but within a week they just dont look nice any more. clear coat is all scratched up pretty good.

I don't even care what wheels, but as for tires I wouldn't even think about toyo open country A/T's, my buddy had them on his truck for a day and returned them. We couldn't even drive 65mph when raining and on a muddy gravel road we where all over the place, his wore out cooper S/T's did way better. Look at those or the Hankook ATM's, alot of guys are running then on there 3/4 tons out here in the oil field and getting good life out of them.

I'm also a big fan of those Superduty wheels. But I can understand wanting a wider wheel and stance.

So i'd go with wheel number 1.
