    I agree ^^^
    Im looking for new wheels too. but IMO black is overdone
    if they made these in a size that would fit our trucks i would get them.

    Maybe I'm in the minority but I like the stock 16 inch alloys. It's your truck hunter buy what you like (assuming you get that 4.0).

    Personally, I won't be buying new rims. I do not see the value in spending my money there. Hell you can only see them in detail when you are parked anyway. If it were me I'd put the money saved on not buying rims towards some other accessory like recovery gear and or better yet maybe a take your parents out to a nice dinner!

    Hmmm good idea!

    Hmmmm probably not lol


    No pic, i dislike chrome and I am doing the black and red theme, so not sure on what other color...
    I take them out quite a bit but maybe a fancier place...

    Anyway I think they are ok but I will be ugrading my tires and need some backspacing hence the rims. I could get spacers but I hear bad things on them....

    If it is a fitment issue then use that as your criteria to narrow down your choices. I am
    of no help in tha area.

    Now hurry up and decide so you can update your build!

    True, I had not thought about that. Its probably because of my stock 245's are still going strong. :annoyed:

    Gotcha thanks so my 265 75 16 is what a 33?

    Cause the 265/285 is width correct? Then the 75 is height. Or do I have it backwards? lol

    Heh I had 245s to begin with sold them got some 265s :) they are not even broke in yet. So Ill prob sell them or keep them for rocks or something.

    The best plan is to buy tires/wheels that you can use year round. The only time I had two sets of wheels was when I had my STi, which I ran summer tires on nice rims and snow tires on the stock rim. Either keep the 265s and get nice rims or sell them to pay your mom back.
