new wheels and tires

Hey guys i was wondering if you could give me some input. I am getting a 4" super lift. I was wondering what you guys tink about 17"x9" Mickey Thompson Classic Lock Wheels And some 33"x12.50"xR17 Baja Claw Radial Tires.

I think 17s might be a little bit big for a 33" tire, but it'd look awesome! Baja claws are sweet tires too. I say go for it! The only thing is the classic locks will be a B!TCH to keep clean if they're the ones I'm thinking of.

naw classic locks arent hard to keep clean cause you can just ubolt the ring and clean em.


I personally dont like bigger rims with truck tires unless its necessary.

IE: i had to put 17 inch weld racing wheels on my dads truck to be able to get 37 inch MT/Rs on. the super duty brakes cant accomodate anything smaller than 16s.

I think a little bit bigger wheel would look pretty cool. If you ever go up to 35s, 17s would look awesome. My friend has 35s and 17s on his truck and they're badass.

everything you want are pretty cool. if you do any off roading where you need good traction, then 15" or 16" rims would be best it let's your tires flex a little and better side grip for better traction. good luck with what ever you choose.

remember the bigger the tires the harder they are on the bearings and steering rods.
