    My only plans are window tint, cooler lookin (cheap) wheels, some aggressive tires and a K&N.

    What would be some good looking replacement wheels? I don't plan on doing a lift, been there done that. Is that company rockcrawler still making good cheap wheels? most importantly, what size wheels would you recommend? I plan on 31 inch mud terrains.

    Thanks in advance.

    thanks for the feedback.

    why paint the stock wheels when I can buy nicer looking ones for cheap? :p

    and not that I don't believe you, but does everyone else agree with this? to be honest i'd rather deal with inches when it comes to trucks, it's easier.

    so rim size 16x?

    and tire size 31x?R16

    again, thanks for all the help.

    BONE STOCK! lol
    you can get 15's so you can run a 31x10.5x15's
    if you get a 4" backspacing wheel the rim will stick out just a bit and would look agressive :D

    Thanks for the link, but I'm asking what would be the best size rim width for that tire?
