    Default Like My New Rims?

    Here are my rims i got for christmas. They are Ion Alloy 179's 18x9 5.5 bs +12mm os. I put the factory bridgestones on them until they wear out. I then plan to put a leveling kit and 285/65/18 's on.

    I'll like them better when you're leveled and have the bigger meats on them. Looks good, but will look mucho bettero with the other stuff done. What tire do you plan on running later on?

    Big mud tires ruin trucks, sorry to say. i like mine how they look and all, just on road performance is very poor no matter what mud tire, but they do throw a big rooster tail haha

    Looking good. It'll be even better when leveled and with larger tires.

    Thanks for the flowers !!! I'm not going to go any bigger than a leveling kit and 285's. It's got 265's on it from the factory and i will probably go with BFG A/T KO's. I don't want to go any bigger because my truck is an "all-star edition" and unfortunately they put 3.08 gears in those. At least around here. Of course i didn't realize it till it was too late to take it back !!! But on the flip side i do get 20mpg on the highway!!!
