help me dicide

Hi everyone, just so you know my name is Drew and I have been an onlooker of this site for a long time, just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I have a 2003 edge regular cab flare side its 2wd I had it lowered with the key flip and all that but its to hard to get it the wheels pointing straight and have dicided to lift it. Now I have 17x8 centerline archers which some of you might know because I'm trying to sell them on the site right now, but should i keep them and just put offroad tires on them, or should I try and sell them to get some 15x8 wheels with beadlock rings. I'm going for the prerunner look and right now I just have the t-bar crank done. I'm going to keep it like this for a while and just get some 32's. let me know what you guys think thanks!

17's would look cool, but tires are more expensive. i'd go with the 15x8.

First off, welcome to R-F!

I've seen people run 17" wheels with Off-Road tires. it looks pretty cool. And to be honest, everyone's got 15s. I say keep your 17s if you've got the money, and get some 33s. Stay away from the prerunner look though. You're in PA. That'd be like me driving a snowmobile to school in Texas. Just my two cents.

Well if he wants to clear bigger then 33's without doing a big lift he could always get fiberglass fenders front and back.

The biggest I would want to go is 33's, I dont want to go to big because I still want to be able to drive my truck across country and everyday without spending alot of money on gas lol, I kind of want to go prerunner because its different noone has that look around here and its only 2wd and Im not trying to go offroad really just some light trail stuff like when hunting and deer spotting, looking for more of the show lifted truck.

Yeah I looked up prices and there is like 250 dollars between 32's for 15's and "32" for 17's but I would still have to sell my wheels and buy the new ones and noone wants them
