    I prefer more tire and less rim for off-road. Bigger rim for the street look. Smaller rim = Cheaper tires..

    This is true...I think that wheel price shoots threw the roof if you get 17's

    I wanted those (DC-1s in black) and was told by a tire place that sells them locally that they were only available in 17s ...... :confused:

    I have decided I like both sizes! Either would look nice on my truck I think! I would prefer 17's but for the right deal I would def take 16's

    16's... allows for more tire between the wheel and the ground... tires are usually cheaper... :thumbsup:

    Ok..so after talking with my dad! I believe I am going to go with the DC-1 16x8 6 on 5.5 bolt wheels

    http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/D...&t_s=210&t_pt=100044&t_pl=5429&t_pn=M/T968412

    SO my total price is $581

    I am wanting to stay at or around $1200 So that leaves me $600 to get tires with! I want big tires so the truck sits higher! Suggestions please! If I dont get reasonable suggestions in the $600 price range! Then I will be getting 17inch wheels with a smaller cheaper tire!

    Yours look great! But if I get 17's I am a little worried about room and spacing! I know they will work...but I prefer to keep my mud flaps on! And with 17's im not sure I could do that and get a decent sized tire!
