Damn...choices too make!!!

Well Xmas is coming and I got some $$ soo I wanna get some aftermarket wheels for the LEvel2.. I love the alcola's but there everywhere and I hate blending in haha... Soo these are the wheel and tire choices I have narrowed down too..

First combo is a set of ProComp Xtreme Alloys...Black Powercoat
http://www.4wheelparts.com/aux_incl/...jpg&partNo=PXA
With a set of ProComp M/t's

Or go with this set..
Procomp Alloys, polished
http://www.4wheelparts.com/PPT3627T100073.aspx
With a Set of BFG a/t's Or M/t's

Now what would u do.. All i see is everyone stuffing 33x12.5's under there trucks.. is it worth the size or should I just get a set of 32x11.5's? I have a set of Beltech shackles for the rear ready to install and doing a small T-bar crank.. What would u do...

Polished all the way! Go with the 32's with a mild T-bar crank and it will look real good. IMO.

I like Eagle Alloy's version (Searies 185) of ProComp's Extreme Alloy. The black between the pseudo-beadlock goes all the way around on the Eagle Alloys, whereas the ProComps don't. The procomp version looks halfassed.

ProComp...


Eagle Alloy


Of course I'm also running these wheels too (the Eagle Alloys). either way, I'd go with a black or dark grey wheel since you're yellow. The combination is a good contrast, whether you do so for just aesthetic purposes or for function over form. Thus, even looking at my truck you'll notice a contrasting theme of black and white, with very little chrome; a little on my wheels and basically my bumpers, which I plan to fix the bumpers by either powder coating or line-xing when I line-x the lower contour and rocker panel.

As for tires, I don't particularly care for 12.5 inch wide tires on our trucks. That said, and not going into detail on why I don't like 12.5s, but 10.5s are perfect for our trucks in an off-road application and a 12.5 inch tire is not practical for the off-roading I do with the terrain out here. Regarding the diameter, ask yourself what do you use the truck for? Do you off-road at all or do you use it strictly as a DD/street vehicle? If you offroad, by going to 33s you'll gain 1 inch in ground clearance. With the proper off-roading techniques, that 1 inch of clearance can be significant. If you are strictly on-road, then a 32 inch tire would probably be best as all you gain is about 1/2 inch of clearance.
