I like the new ones! I would have rocked those if I couldve found them, they are sporty and modern.

At least fix that bumper gap on the passenger side, then.

Looks good, but I'm with stoner, I liked the older ones better.

Not bad. It's an improvement, but I think the split spoke style from the newer FX4's would looked really sick.

None the less, looks good so far. However, your truck really screams for a nice set of custom rims.

Nah def not. I think the split spoke look like junk! Those things were out of style before ford ever built the first one.

yes thy are the same size... 225/60/16's, they are just a pince shorter than the stock size of 225/70/15's, thats why it doesn't look lowered that much

hey tre, new meats? thoes tires only have about 7,000 miles on them


and as far as the split spoke, i thoughti wanted them until i saw them in person, i like to keep it simple, and lets put it this way, i am really picky about what wheels i put on there, and every custom wheel i looked at i didn't like
