I'll speak my mind on this. The truck looks like a matchbox, you're wrong on the attitude, and weight on the tires.

My opinion on the gaudy big shiny rims would be this. There is no point to them, they look retarded, they give all of us the wrong impression and some of us find ourselves in real awkward place as to not offend people because of the association with those types of rims. I cannot be up front and clear as to what I am saying with this because I don't want to loose respect or offend someone. I'm simply stating a fact.

As far as your responses to D and Maurice, BOTH of them know what they're talking about as far as their truck's go. While I may disagree with them, they know a hell of a lot more than most on this site. My advice, take the opinions as they are, if you have issue with that, take it elsewhere. This is one of the better sites I'm part of, but people with responses like you bring the site down.

no he's not an offroad guy, atleast with that truck..
i heard DOT limit is like 200 lbs for a tire, if a 35" tire weighs 75 lbs then how the hell does a 54" Bogger weigh in less than 200lbs??

Hey man you ever come down to Ole Miss. I live on campus and would really like to see that truck in person. Been wanting to do the same thing for a long time.

lol... 24's on a st.cab. spending 4k in wheels for an 8k truck... very clever. ;o)

in all seriousness... nice wheel design, but just too freakin big for that truck, and the rubberband tires look funny.

would have been much nicer with 22's and the same diameter tires, imo.

This is true. Everybody has different ways of looking at things.

My truck stickered for 18 something. I got it brand new. I know it is worth nothing now, but still. I paid 2800 and some change OTD for the rims and tires. I could have spent hundreds less on some bs tires, but I don't buy subpar anything.

These tires should go 75k like my last Toyo Proxies St did. That's a decent investment.

I needed tires for my truck anyways so you can subtract at least 400 from 2800.

I just sold my 20's for $500

My truck would not be stock. So a set of 17, 18, 20 ect with tires would set me back a bit.

It is kind of rediculous, but I like it.
