    All wheel, extremely low profile tire. I wouldn't even run tires if DOT wasn't such a stickler. Just 35" chrome wheels with a litle rubber on the edges to cut down on sparks. And they should continue to spin even after my truck has stopped.

No more mud flaps, Temp gauge inside intake box, BHLM, extra D-rings in front of bed, No more plastic storage box behind rear seats. More to come.
    MORE TIRE!! Looks unanimous. But keep the ratio of rubber to alloy in a good range, big huge 35"+ tires riding on little tiny 15" wheels dont like to hold a bead well when aired down way way low.

    it depends on tire size i think. if you have 35's, 20 is about the biggest i think. if you have 37+ your safe with 22's. anything smaller than 33 i say 17 is about the biggest size.

    Here's what I would do. Buy the biggest rim you can, because big rims are in. Then plasti dip that sucker, all of it. The the entire setup, wheel and tire, will look like a tire! Problem solved.
