    Just installed the Rancho 4" on the truck. Looking to see if you guys think I should do rims, XD Addicts or Monsters. Or tires, Nitto M/Ts or maybe BF KM2s. Of course thers the 3rd option, give the wife extra back rubs and just do both at the same time. But seriously, if I had to choose, what do you guys think, rims or tires.

    i like the truck the way it sits to be honest. id do tires before rims for sure. throw some plasti-dip on the rims if you want something different.

    thats what i plan on doing soonish.

    The lift looks good! If I were you, I would definitely go for some black wheels. I'm not a fan of 2-tone trucks. Your mirrors, brush guard and side steps are all black so some black wheels would be fitting.

    Thanks for the input so far guys. I am quickly becoming a fan of the black rim look. Anyone have expierience with that plastic dip stuff, I've heard of it but havent seen it in person yet.

    If done right plastidip looks good and will last several years from my observations and experience. I recently put black xd hoss wheels on my truck (9 wide wheel instead of the stock 8.5) and a few days later was already pricing different tires because the lowered quality of the ride.

    I personally would wait until the tread you have now is low and buy the tires and wheels at the same time if you want to go biger on the wheel size. If not, new tires and plasitdip is prob your cheapes option.

    Definitely go with the tires first. The lift looks great. Bigger tires will really set it off. Rims can wait, but them I'm a fan of stock rims anyway.

    I am totally agree with you. You are 100% good here that your mirrors, sweep secure and side steps are all black so some black tires would be suitable.

    Throw some Toyo AT2's on that bitch. IMO blk on blk is clean.

    Get a more aggressive and bigger set of tires to match the height of your rig.
