I need your help with a financial decision!

With the Mustang, Lightning, and Ranger, I have to think long and hard where to best spend what little money I have on modifications, so...

I really like the look of my factory wheels (and I am really good about taking care of my wheels in the winter, etc.), but I would like to go custom as well. My big problem is that I want to get other stuff for my truck as well, such as a tonneu cover, a billet grill, Bama SCT tuner, UDP, etc. I also want to put a 265/70/16 or 256/75/16 tire on my truck and moving up from the factory 16x7" size to a 16x8" size would be nice but not necessary. So should I wait until next winter to maybe get another set of wheels and go ahead and get bigger tires and the other stuff, or say the heck with the other stuff and get the wheels?

Below are some pics of the truck to help you decide:





Here is a link to the wheels I would get if I went aftermarket:

Damn I love the Eagles! I am really going to consider these. Don't you think that BS will make them stick out side the fenders too much though?

I found the same rim in 4" BS and placed a bid on them. I think I will like those better.

If I can't retract the bid on the 15x7"s, do you think they would be okay with a 32x11.5x15 or a 31x10.5x15"?

Yea, that is what happened to me. I had both windows open one for the wheels you showed me and another for the same wheel with the 4" BS, but I though they were 8" too. I contacted the seller. The ones I bid on have 6 days to go, so hopefully he will get back to me and be cool about it. Fingers crossed.

Even if I am stuck with the 15x7", I see a lot of Level II Rangers with bigger tires on their 15x7" Alcoa's and they look fine.
