Tim's on 18's

so i picked up those rims i was talking about earlyer. so i got them for $140. 4 tires and 4 wheels for 140. the tires are 285/60/r18 and the wheel are gear alloy 713mb (or somthing like that) any way they rub the tinyest amount on the flare at full flex and it is just barley. they rub when i bounce going down woops but than again so did my 31's. pix (crappy cell fone)..and a random one of the fire we had at the river bar on sat.

Very nice IFS flex. The wheels don't look to bad. I'm not overly crazy about a six spoke wheel.

what do u guys think look better....my dad says he will trade me these for his 15x8 m/t classic 2's with 31/10.5/r15 bfg a/t on them. his have about the same tread as these dune graplers, and my friend is going to give me a set of 31/10.5/r15 bfg a/t's with 1/2 tread so i would be set for a wile. and new tires for the m/t's are like less that 1000, and tires for the 18's are upwards of 1200. so i dont know what to do. both wheels look sick on it if u ask me and the 18's make it stick out more than every other truck with classic II's. here are the pix what do u think?

more pix here

clasic II's would look better on your truck than those 18's imo.
anything bigger than a 16 should stay on the street

Keep those 18's on there. Put a bodylift($150, not to bad) on and your truck will become Bad A$$.

i got a grill at the junk yard and didnt notice the difference until i put it on....its what ever. and the headache rack is just tall enough to let the light shine at a good angle. and the bottom of the top bar is only 1/2 and inch above the 3rd break light....it just looks weird in the pix.
