    Okay,

    I need help. I have been looking through all of the wheel threads and I cannot find what I am looking for. I just purchased a 2010 TRD off road 6sp in mgm and the dealer is putting on a 6" lift and wheels and tires of my choice.

    Being VERY new to this whole world I would like to here YOUR feedback as to which wheel and tire setup that you you go with (as long as they are 18x9 and 33x12.50)...I would REALLY appreciate if you could provide pics so I can see these wheels. I have been looking at the XD series and the Fuel series and saw some Konig's, but don't know exactly where to go.

    I would like a little dish to the wheel and want them in black and a 18x9.
    I already had picked out the Fuel Octanes, but the wife shot me down?!?!
    Below is what they are going to go on!!

    Thanks in advance,
    -James

    Well the more that I read the more it looks like I should just go with the 35's.
    How much less functional would it be if I went with the 20" wheels instead of the 18's??

    Im pretty sure 35s will look nice. But I think 20 inch wheels are not the way to go. I would go 18 at most. More tire>More rim

    Thanks and yes. The decision and purchase happened yesterday. I went with the 18x9 xd addicts on a 35x12.50 Nitto Terra Grappler!! I wanted Methods but they didn't have them. My dealer bought my wheels, tires, and lift

    Can't wait to see how it is going to turn out.

    They are an off road truck dealer and specialize in lifted trucks...the pretty much do 6" lifts on all of their trucks, I just got to choose what wheel and tire package and unfortunately not the lift, because it is just a Fabtech stage 1 :pout: but I can make changes later...
