If your rims were 17s I would say no but the bigger rim will just look better on your truck. Don't put Cobra R's on there though, everyone does that and it looks like shat now.

Yes you need 17's, it will make your truck look better, but I'm not really a fan of those Cobras.



BTW, that Exploder looks horrible. Who in there right mind would lower an Exploder, not to mention a 2 dr one.

Get them. IMO they will look MUCH better on your truck, especially lowered. I'm not a fan of the wheels you have now, especially in 15's since you plan on lowering it.
