Opinion

Alright I already searched...but I'm so confused now

I'm thinking about purchasing the 3" doetesh (sp) lift spindles w/ 2" aal's in the rear.

I already cranked the t-bars to level

I want to put 33x12.5x15 on the truck

I'm looking for a 15" wheel.

How would a black rock crawler wheel look on my sonic blue truck???

or should i save up my money and get the chrome kind???

I was looking at the rock crawler 15x8 on 5x4.5 bolt pattern w/ 3.75" b/s

sound good??? Black rims on a blue truck????

help me

I would recommend what Zach beard has this edge right here ^^ 15x10 mickey tompsons with 33x12.5x15 buckshot mudders

the buckshots are $505 shipped to you door a member here sells them for us.

and also the mickeys are like $435 or something close to that from summitracing.com here http://store.summitracing.com/defaul...=egnsearch.asp

awesome...thanks a lot!!!

i really like the second truck...i've seen it around the forums

the wheels definetly set it off.

although I am a fan of the black wheels..they are much easier to clean and take care of

:edit: i think i might stick w/ no lift for now...the bamachips tuner is next on my list

that would push me to a 15x8 tire w/ 31x10.5 or 12.5 of course by R15"

actually...32's are appealing

:edit:

what about these
theese

or is that the wrong backspacing???

btw if you have anyplans to lift your truck leave the tuner to LAST!!!! becuase if you lift it you have to send it back to doug to get the new program for the bigger tires and crap put on it just and idea. and also just aal alone wont lift the rear to be as high as the front with spindles

that link you put is that same link i just put in my first thread?

i can't get the link to work right

it's the same link you gave me except with the 15x8

how about that with the tires you mentioned...you said they were 5 something from a member on here

i'm thinking about doing that...i want to concentrate more on engine mods (tuner, intake, exhaust, etc.)

i really don't need a lift just yet...yet ahhaha

what tires would you reccomend???

i just cranked the t bars and i will be using those mt wheels

thinking along the lines of 31's?????

i got to save up some money 1st

figure it should cost about 1600 all together

400 for rims
500 for tires
300 for lift
400 for tuner

whatever that adds up to

i think i might be doing it...that truck looks SICK

You could have saved some money by going with cheaper wheels, but maintained that "chrome" look. However, those wheels are very good, and you shouldn't be dissapointed. Make sure you post pics!

Can I use the stock lugs and hubs...my eyesight isn't that great and I can't see in the pic...it looks like i can

that would be awesome. I think i'm picking up a set of these and some 33x12.5x15's.

should I go with a 15x8 or 15x10??? They both have a 4" backspacing...is that too much w/ a 12.5 wide tire???
