    Thank you for the kind responses. The rims are MB motoring Razors. They are from Discount Tire. There was a store a couple cities away from me that had these new in the box sitting around for a while and where advertising them in the local ads for $65 per rim. I had a co-worker who lived there pick them up and went to a local Discount Tires. I had them match an online price for the Nittos. I'm very happy with the deal I got and happy with the looks.

    The ride home seemed solid. The road noise was much much quieter than the old ones. I did some full turns and went through some dips and it doesn't appear like I have any rubbing issues. I'm going to drive it to work a few times this week (it isn't my daily driver) to make sure all is all right before I tow my toy hauler camping over Labor Day weekend.

    Thank you,
    John

    Wow! those definitely stand out. Good choice! In my opinion, rims and tires are the biggest and best thing someone can do to improve the looks of their truck.
