I'd go 18" rim on nitto mud grapplers if I was goin big...butttt thats just me.

All the DD trucks around here are on bling wheels iwth either mud grapplers or toyo m/t's.



I'd rock some 18's on 35/36 mud grapplers!!!

My opinion...if it's a street beater and you just want it to look good...

Get some nice 15" wheels, I like the black DC1's, and a nice looking tire like the 35x13.5 toyo mud terrain or mud grapplers, I wish I had the money for the mud grapplers!!!

why would you put such and aggessive tire on a street truck, unless of course you just have 300-350 to drop per tire...plus wheels

The look.

I'm going to do MTZ's it looks like...they are VERY similar to that mud grappler. I like how they look (both of them) and I'm not too worried about offroad performance, my truck is 2wd anyway.

i hear that.

35's for a lifted truck are considered "small" around here. You better be up on 37's if you want to even place in a mid sized truck!!!

i know looks play an important role, but like jpro130 said, the MTZs look like the grapplers.. and they are 100-150 less, if i had the money i would go with the mud grapplers..

not to know on Ricky..and MT isnt an off brand but people at shows know what to look at and stuff..brand name high dollar stuff makes you better off..

not sayin MT is cheap and is a knock off brand..but people know that mudd graps cost big money so its better for show IMO..

it pays to play

Yup, thats why I'm getting MTZ's. Look w/o the price. I don't wheel my truck anymore, I don't plan on it until it is WAY bigger or 4x4...I can't wheel my DD anymore.

I can't wait to get osme on my rig, but that isn't what this thread is about anyways :)



If you got the money, get the grapplers, just b/c they are a baddddd to the bone tire...but if you don't...well, save up!!! It takes big stuff to place!!


BTW, are you susp lifting at all?

the only way you will not have the same wheel as the next Joe is to have custom wheels machined........someone will ALWAYS have the same wheel as someone else.....no other way around it...not near as many people have the DC-1's as do the Classic II..........
