Also if you'v got any ideas for some rims that would look good on my truck post them up lol

I will find some pics of a buddy of mines Ranger who had that tire size. They looked badass on his truck. Also if they stick out, will mainly depend on the back spacing.

I really like #1, but those screws are gonna suck to have to clean around. I'd go with #3 b/c it's a nice, simple design. And they look easy to maintain.
