and also, these rims are 4.50 and 4.90 BS, so i am guessing i would have to run wheel spacers?

4.50 and 4.90 Backspace?? those are too far inside the fender for my liking... my wheels are 3.75 backspaced and are right on the outer edge of the fender. But if you want 4.90 backspacing, it's your truck.
as for the wheels, neither. the Alcoas's are better.

I think you should stay with what you have. Don't really like either of the 2.

I would stay with what you have as well. But if you want something new and are hellbent on one of those number 2 is def. a nicer wheel. The first one looks like it should be on a sunfire with a big aluminum wing and a fart can on the muffler!

i have been thinking, and was wanting to go lower, but i just found at a tire place near me a set of 4 bfg mt kms in the 32x11.5x15 for 125 a piece. so i think that means i may be going up instead

yea, i am probably the most confused person about what i want to do. lowering would suit my driving style better, but then i would end up in trouble. and if i lift it, i really want a 4x4.

#1 belong on a ricer.. theres a black hummer around my place on #2 and they are siiiiick....however.. if your looking for 15" rim like u said about the BFG's then niether. member those pictures are of usually at least a 20" wheel most of the time 22". so if you saw it in a 15 or 16 its not gonna be nearly the same....
