I've got a 98 bone stock but am leaning toward 17-19' rims with low pros. I just want the truck to look good. I believe you get what you pay for so whatever prople think is good.

I thought about it but I live in the land of the Speed bumps and dont want to deal with bags or hydraulics and want my car to be unique. I havent decided weather or not to do the low pros or mudslingers. I just like the way low pros and big rims look.

If you lifted it you could go ALOT bigger than 17s or 18s, and it would look retarted.


Here ya go

Lift it = Bigger more aggressive tires
Lower it = Big rims, low pros....


Either way its going to look a hell of alot better than stock!
