Need help finding rims.

I want to get new rims. Looking at 15x10s right now. I found these on CL 15x10 rims with tires

Not sure what color would look best with the truck. Heres a pic.

black would look sweet on a yellow truck. ive seen chrome on yellow and black on yellow and believe black is the way to go. if you like the style of wheel that you found on CL procomp makes a black one and im not sure if mickey thompson still does, but ik they had them a while back for a limited time. whats done to your truck? like is it lifted? if so id get 33x12.50s. i had 15x10 w/ 33x12.50s and a body lift. looked perfect and the only trimming was on the valance and it was maybe .5" on the corner.

BFG ATs are amazing. my friend got almost 100k out of em. of course they were completely bald but i would guess 60-75k would be about right if rotated and maintained regularly. nitto terragraps are supposed to be excellent tires that wear good. ive also heard good things about the duratracs you listed and am considering them for the f150. i cant thing of anything else that ik for a fact is good thats an AT. are you wanting a top of the line namebrand like BFG, goodyear, nitto or would something like dayton, bridgestone, firestone, etc be good? i heard the bridgestone duellers were pretty good. i cant remember which duellers they are but a friends dad has em on his 2500 gmc farm truck and likes em. the M/T ATZs are bad *** too. but its whatever you want, you have alot of choices bein a 15" rim. i hate havin 18s bc alot of the cheaper brands like maxxis or dayton dont do much w/ the bigger rims

I think you should get those rims on craigslist and paint them black.

My buddy has the nitto's and like them, but I cant find them in a 33x12.5. Right now its a toss up on the BFG A/T and the Goodyear duratracs. I got to see if my buddy can get me a discount on some tires too.

Ive got the duratracs and i LOVE them. I had them up at rasch creek aired down to 20 and they did so good on the rocks.They do excellent in the rain and they are very quiet on the road. I would recomend them to anyone.

I like that style, but why on earth would you get 10" wide? with no factory flares, you need 15x8 !!

and black FTW

whats it matter if theres flares or not? i had factory flares and 15x10s and they still stuck out... i see ppl drive around w/ 12.5-15" wide tires and no flares all the time. all it does is sling more dirt on the truck

well as long as it's legal in your state, there is nothing wrong with it....
the flares give you about an extra inch or 2, so it justifies a little wider rim, I just really don't get the flareless trucks with 10" wides... I think it sticks out too much, but either way you can still mount up a 12.50 wide tire....
