    If you want to save some money and use your stock rim, you can put 235/75/15 tires on it

    thanks, i think the more aggressive tires really adds to the look of the 5 lug reg cabs

    i agree. i dont see many 5 lugs that look really aggresive but yours looks great. you need to check out MUDBUG's truck, he has a nicely set up 5 lug. I'm partial to all black though

    ND, While I agree that Mudbug has a really nice looking truck, it is a 4x4 and so it is a 6 lug lug truck. That said, I am thinking about getting rid of my 93 Accord and picking up a used regular cab 4x4 for wheeling and home depot runs and such, they are good looking trucks.
