Updated Ideas

Well I decided against 16 inch wheels for 15 inch wheels, also I have been looking at Goodyear Duratracs (33x12.50x15). Ive got my wheel choices down to 3 options, they are all 15x8s with 3.75 backspacing.

Whats your guys opinion for my truck?

#1 Ultra Nomads

#2 Procomp 8069s

#3 Procomp 8179s


Ill try and get an updated picture of the way my truck is sitting now with stock wheels and lowered 2/3.

option 1 or 3, 2 is nice, but the other 2 are just a little nicer...

keep one thing in mind though, you are going to have a bigger lip between the inner part and the outer part of the rim.... like a deep dish effect with the 3.75 bs, than what it looks like in those pics

either that or there will be a significant taper on the inner part... either way, all 3 options are nice looking rims

yeah id love to see that thing bagged, slammed. Go with 1 or 2 if you are serious about lift. The contrast of the nomads against your dark (black?) truck would look nice. The black on (black?) lol would look good too.

GO FOR #3!!!!!!!

I think that would look sick on your truck!

(i'm a little biased on those anyway, I really want them for mine, but i dont want to lift mine... yet )

But seriously, go for #3!!!!

Im still undecided on a wheel choice, Im thinking about these now, Opinions?

Ultra Rogue



The pictures dont do justice, they look alot better mounted, the lettering on the edge stand out to much in just the pic of the wheel

I ordered Doetsch ones, I dont plan on jumping my truck or anything like that, so they should do just fine

I lowered my truck when it was my only vehicle, now I aslo have a 89 Mustang and a 04 SVT Focus. Being Lowered was fun for awhile, I still like lowered trucks but recently Ive been using it alot more as a truck and its not working out very well and getting another truck isnt an option.

Heres some pics of my other vehicles

Im not sure yet, Im not sure if Im going to stick with my 7.5 and put 4.56s and a trac lock or get a 8.8 from my friend who runs a salvage yard and put 4.56s in that and rebuild the traction lock?

Got my Doetsch spindles today, Im trying to verify that I got 98-00 spindles vs 01+, how can I tell the difference between the 2? There is a casting number but not a part number on them. Do they all come with wheel speed sensor holes? Its not a big deal if they are the 01+, then Ill just get bigger rotors.
