That sucks, but seriously keep the prostar style. They MAKE your truck.

I'd send the company a email with pics. Thank God you noticed that.

I'm with everyone else. Those rims are your truck man. Torq-thrusts are the only other rim I can even see on your truck.

my dad heard a clicking sound as I was backing out of the driveway.. I didnt hear it or see it, till I jacked it up.. hopefully my next set of rims will use normal lugs, mags are a ***** as no shops here know how to put them on without costing me a stud or lug cause they torque the crap out of them..

I have a budget of $250 till my next paycheck.. so lets see what I find on craigslist..
