FX4 LVL 1 Rims

So I've been thinking of ditching my stock rims for awhile, but I don't want to spend a whole lot of money. So I was thinking of getting some stock FX4 LVL 1 rims to put on it. Anyone else done this? Thoughts?

Do it. Those are pretty nice wheels. You can prolly find them on eBay or from someone on here. Just look around a little bit.

That what I was thinking, what with everyone lifting their trucks, and putting on aftermarket rims their must be alot around, and I assume its the same lug pattern..

Also, I assume they will fit with a decent size tire w/out any rubbing, cuz I don't have the time or $$$ to lift it...

they'll fit, now if yours are the same chromie steel rims as mine, they are 15"ers while the FX4/tremor/thunderbolt rims are 16"ers..

Yeah, I have the same wheels as you, and I think they look a little too small.. I think 16's would be nice.

yeah i like the FX4 wheels as well, ive been toying with that idea.. but I just figure i'd just wait till i find out what I really want to do with the truck, like some cobras or something and lower it. I think your truck would look great with the FX4 rims, go for it!

The FX4 stockers are a nice lookin wheel and would look better, IMO, on your rig than the chome jalopies.

I have a set of those wheels I'm debating on selling. As soon as I get a fullsize spare they will go up.

Yeah, but I want to fill up the wheel wells a little more, and I don't like the look of big tires on small rims, plus I don't put too many miles on my truck, so tire changes will be few and far between...
