    I currently have a 07 DC and in the future i plan on getting a total chaos long-travel kit and with this i need to get new wheels and tires for wheels i want to get american racing teflon coated wheels, but i'm open to suggestions and you experiences and favorite wheels mean a lot to me

    I also need to get tires once again i think i want to get either pro comp extreme terranes (but i heard they wear out extremely fast) or bfg a/t which are a classic. also what do you guys recommend going white walls or black walls and if anyone has any info/ suggestions for getting a long travel kit

    thanks for all the help

    Well if you go long travel you will probably want a 35" tire. And you cant fit those on there until you get the long travel installed. And I like black walls. For a tire, BFG AT are nice. Or any sort of baja claw

    Are you planning on putting the 33" tires on before the long travel? Because if you are...they wont fit unless you have a 3" lift.

    x2....Goodyear DuraTrac tires are pretty nice, there's several guys on the forum here that are running em w/ no complaints. They said their quiet, great off/on road and self cleaning. But ya can't go wrong w/ a BFG I suppose :)

    x3 duratrac- they are ssoooooooo quiet on the highway and kick@ss in the rain/puddles...have yet to see them in the winter but they have the winter rating/snow flake emblem. So that have to be just as good as a dedicated winter tire.

    my friend had the Mickey Thompson baja claws on his f150. IMO they were loud and he got shitty mileage out of them.

    I would go with the Goodyear Duratrac. They look like a solid tire.
    read up on them though
