I'm getting rims!!!!

Well after changing my brakes out last night my mom and dad were talking about the old centercaps I had. My dad was gonna buy me some new ones, well we went to the ford place to order some little things and he looked at my truck and he said that if you buy some more the chrome will peel off again in a coulpe of years so he said to goto a local rim place and that they had some that would look nice on my truck, and my mom agreed so I'm goin saterday to check on them.

Heres the one I like:

American Racing
its series: 550, 798, 105, 505

I like the 550's. one thing to find out is if they are clear coated. I found out that the American Eagles I got aren't, and the mirror finish can deteriorate to gray. I'm now doing everything I can to keep em clean, waxing them every 2 months, its a PITA.

UPDATE!!!! well I'm getting rims & tires and some more good stuff as a senior gift...I've decided that if I do sell the truck that the rims will go on my new Ranger whenever I buy one during college... I'm prolly getting 17s or 18s no higher...with some HP tires...And I'm wandering if theres any way to level the rear of my truck w/ o buying some kit???
