I think I am going to wait for now, my mind changes daily, but I want to get a few more performance things before I move on to looks.

Thanks for the input though guys. I do like the stock wheels, I will just have to enjoy them a bit longer.

I know how this goes.

I can't wait until the "paint your factory wheels black" fad is over. Even with powder coating, when I see a vehicle like this I think of a 15 year old driving a 95 Honda Civic Hatchback with faded blue window tint for some reason. lol

I don't have any real suggestions yet, other than don't paint/powdercoat the stock wheels black.

If I had to pick between the two, I would pick the Novakanes. I have a friend with the Novakanes on his F250, and it looks good, but BMF wheels are starting to get worn out in my opinion. EVERYONE is getting them now. But they look good.

I like the first set of wheels best. Ramsey is right on the money as far as the tires. My boss has them on his f-150. I drove it all the time and they had absolutely no grip in the rain, dirt, mud or really even on dry pavement. IMO they are on the same level as the GoodYear Wranglers.

first set and echoing sentiments on the toyo a'ts ... my dad just replaced his with some michelin ltx m/s and loves the michelins ... although i found it amusing that he put load range e's on a 1/2 ton truck ... but he does tow a 25' 5th wheel with it

E rated tires aren't that bad on a half ton if they aren't over-inflated. I put E-rated tires on my mom's 03 expedition because she bought a heavy camping trailer. I was worried about the stability with the short wheel base, P rated factory tires, pulling a heavy trailer through the mountains in Oregon.
When you're towing it really helps to have a sturdy sidewall.

Zach,

I like the stock wheels on that truck. Your truck SCREAMS "class" it's clean and sharp lookin. Black RIMS in my opinion are played out. Kinda like spinner's....they were cool for awhile...but then everyone had em.
