    mine are 15" but 2nd gens have to run 16" and youll want atleast 4.5" backspacing mine are 4.125" BS.

    youll also need to run a small spacer to cause steel rims seat closer to the hub than alloy rims so a 1/4" universal spacer will clear the caliper for you. ive had mine on for a couple of years with zero problems

    lol. straight cuts look clean, dimples mean cheap, stamped - and look like it. gloss has been out for some time (i never liked it anyway, even when it was in).

    and some people wash their cars. sad for someone to have to hide something with dirt to make it look better.

    although maybe your money would be better spent on a rollbar.. :p

    i tend to wheel the piss out of my truck and why wash it when im just going to wheel it in a week? i could wash my rims and they still wouldnt be glossy like they were brand new. i bet if you took a poll the soft 8s would win :D

    lol... you'd hate my truck... it's a work in progress, just started modding it. pic makes it look like it's not level, it's the angle of the pic and slope of the ground. it sits pretty level.
