    What offset did you end up with?

    I feel obligated to say your truck looks great since my truck is also white and will look very similar in the not-so-distant future :p I just ordered some wheels today, but I'm going to keep them a secret until my truck is lowered and looking how I want. The only clues I'll give is that they're black and 19"x8" with a 40mm offset :D I didn't really want to go with 40mm, but that was the only option available in the size I wanted. I love the look of the wheel and so I hope they don't look too "pushed in".

    I ended up going with 35mm and I think it works out better than my 30mm offset a bit.

    I still can't wait to see the what the white looks like though. But I do like the matte black, it accents the truck perfectly for me.

    Thanks! (I think? :p)

    Just to keep things fun around here, attached is a 'teaser' pick :D

    I kept teetering between 19's and 20's literally for months (way before I even bought my dumb-head truck). 20" tires are typically cheaper, but there's a lot of negatives to them:
    • wheels and tires weigh more
    • the weight is further from the center of the wheel, decreasing acceleration and braking performance even more (but then again, by going with 19's, it's not like I'm going to get great performance anyway)
    • I'd have to run such a small aspect ratio to keep the speedometer correct that rim protection from potholes becomes none-existant.
    I've read all sorts of posts about people running 40 series tires having bent or damaged wheels and wishing they had gone with a 45 series. I had 45 series tires on my last truck for over 10 years, so I'm assuming that's a pretty safe bet. Since my truck is a daily driver, I do need a little sidewall, so 19's won.

    Now I have to pick some tires and get them mounted. I plan on visiting Discount Tire as they're the only shop I've heard of that can install programmable TMPS sensors. The plan is to have new sensors put in the new wheels with the same sensor IDs as my OEM wheels. That way, when I swap my summer wheels for my winter wheels, the TMPS light will stay off w/o a trip to the dealer.
