i got a hankering for some new wheels. i never liked the aluminum wheels i have right now, what do you think about a set of chrome steel stockers? i like the way they look a lot better. i'd like to go bigger, but these tires have a lot of life left.

chrome stockers look horrible and are incredibly hard to clean. Go with denali rims :head:

Denali rims are pretty cheap...grab some take off from your local dealer...tires and everything.

It may not be the look you are looking for, but they are shinny and are only slightly bigger.

michelins aren't cheap, son! i have a heated pressure washer and will keep them waxed. they look better than the aluminum wheels i have now :imo also this is a work truck and denali rims are too expensive to destroy. i can get the stockers for $150 shipped.

if you want the stockers, i'd try to find someone with them on a newer truck (good tires) and see if they will trade you and throw in a lil money. thats what i'm gonna do with my stock chrome ones. i want the "steelie" wheels so i can powdercoat them black and use them in the winter...nitto's suck in the snow.

i put a $700 set of michelin tires on the truck the day after i bought it. they're going to last a long, long time :read:

realistically i would not take anyone else's used tires because they're not what i need, which are skinny LT rated michelin all terrains.

the michelins won't last to long if it's a work truck... we're lucky to get a year out of a set.

I wouldn't bitch to much about 700 bux for a set of tires..


My 20's were 2000 dollars for a set (good thing the company paid the bill)

more like my DD that gets worked alot. i expect 60k out of them, they've hardly worn at 8500 miles. as far as tires for 16" wheels go they were expensive considering all the shitty generic tire brands in these parts... sport kings, super mudders, trail dominators etc. we don't see much over 17" in this part of PA.

Just to let some of you know the stock tires (goodyear ST) when you get about 18-20k half life, you DON'T want to be on them in the rain, you'll end up in a bar ditch, my reck is the Bridgestones HL/HP great wet/dry track
