Most of the time you can find deals online, but really you need to shop around, and remember to add mounting and balancing to your cost, some places may hook you up with a better deal on it if you buy tires from them and such, I got the hook up on mounting and balancing so i just buy mine off line :)

What do you mean buy mismatching rims and tires? If you mean like different sizes and stuff there is just a quanity thing. If you mean they are compatible, just make sure you buy 15" tires for a 15" rim and so forth and make sure the rims you choose are wide enough for your tire. pretty much your'e going to want to run a 8" plus wide wheel since im assuming your going to be running atleast a 10.50 tire

I got my rims and tires from discounttire.com. They had the best online deals I could find. I don't know if they still do it, but I got free mounting, balancing, and shipping on everything. They also gave me a $50 discount since I bought rims and tires together. Everything was ready to be put on when it was delivered.

I just bought rims off Kijiji for $150. I think its hard to go wrong for that price with used rims. So many options available for us from Jeeps and other Fords.

see the thing is i want like a 10.5 11.5 or 12.5 i want wider makes for a better looking stance but were i get confused with buying rims and **** is the width like are all rim and tires the same width at where they mount up and get wider like i kno tires get wider at the tread than at the rim but are all rims the same width when shoppingn for rims i dont see anywhere the width of the rim or the interior width of the tire thats what im most afraid of

Regardless of where you're looking to buy rims, you should be able to find the rim width pretty easily. Each size tire has a certain range of rim widths that it can be mounted on. See if this helps any: Tire Tech Information - Tire Specs Explained: Rim Width Range
