Cant Decide.....

have 2 choices at the moment to either go with, either get some dunlop rover 285's on my stock 5 spoke 16's or get some 15x8 steelies with x-terrains on them, same price, have no clue which to go for.......truck is sonic blue if you want to make a mental pic......

no really looking used its just what i have found, actually i havent really looked for 32s at all, the 285's are brand new that a guy bought but isnt using, the pro comps have 1000 miles on them and the rims are brand new........

I have the Dunlop 285's and they are a great tire. If I had to do it over I would get 15in rims just because tires are much cheaper in the 15's

hmm, i have noticed that the price of 15 inch rim tires are rising, or maybe the price of 16 inch rim tires is dropping cause most are running around the same price........im definetly wanting the pro comps but im just curious as to what the black rims will look like on the truck........

Now I must say I have a friend with a Jeep that has 35" Xterrains and he has loved them...Now Im sure a Jeep is a lot lighter than our trucks but still they have lasted him really good. Plus I think they look soso good
