New wheels and tires change the whole truck but it all depends on the tires and wheels. I think start with tires you can always add the wheels later really easy

Get the tires and pass on the rims.

I would save up about another $150 and get something else.

yeah pass on the rims and save for something better. i personally think some polished wheels would look great on your truck, especially with the cooper s/t's

No, they are not special. They are heavy and dont look that good imo.
