    I know responses are going to say personal preference, but, what is the point of 18"+ rims with rubber band tires on a 4x4?

    Right, there is a Titan at my house that has like 22's on it and 35's they are a little thin for my taste but it still looks pretty good on it.

    The point is this:

    If the person wants the wheels and puts them on THEIR truck, and they like them, there ya go!

    I don't have a problem with 18's since unless you're trying to look retarded you can still have some decent meat on the tire.

    That being said for a midsize truck I personally wouldn't go over 17"

    If its not your truck, then who cares?

    And on that note, this will probably turn into a bunch of bullshit bashing, which isnt tolerated on the site, so Im doing a pre emptive :locked:


    And also, If someone is found bashing another members truck for bullshit reasons, keep in mind, the Staff is going to be banning those folks.

    Have a nice day :)
