I think those wheels look good, but would be even better without the lettering on it. Either way post some pics up of it!

That'll look good.

But any reason you didn't get a 15x10? Or just want to be extra safe that the bead won't pop off?

honestly, i did a lot of research on the rims. from wht i heard, the way to go was 15x8. i have heard a lot of good things about 15x8 but not so much about the 15x10's. i guess that that would be the reason that i chose to go with them.

go 15x10's specially since you will be running 35's. besides the wider stance looks way better the higher you lift it IMO

Nice, me likey

because 15x8 is the way to go.. He's already got them, he's not asking what to order.


He'll have a plenty wide stance.

they are aawesome...especially when it comes to noise. i had 33" Maxxis MT's on for a while, and when I swiched to the STT's, there was a huge difference in noise and it is smoother now too. plus they still give you that real agressive look

you cant get a set of aggressive tires and not like the hum.. that's pretty hypercritical

When I had the stock 8" wide wheels the hum wasn't too bad but now with the 10" wide wheels they do hum. But I want something louder!!! LOL
