Shop hard fellas. I got my setup for $2k. Not like $2K is peanuts, but bang for the buck is off the scales (almost as good as a tuner). To me they're worth much more. Every time I drive it I get a compliment from someone on how they like the truck. The wheels and tires go a long way. I got fender flares on the way to help keep the tires from slinging any more road grime on the paint.

I got a ton of help out of just asking guys I'd see driving around with a tire/wheel setup. First hand info on things is usually best IMO.

Wheels & tires? That's a steal for $2k! What's flares are you going with?

Yeah I figured it was a great deal. I got the exact setup I wanted. I didnt even haggle at that price. I coulda maybe saved a buck or two more, but a good deal is a state of mind and I've no issues with a man making a living so long as I'm happy.

The flares I ordered are "Prestige" rivet style flares. They appear to be of good quality and about $80 less expensive than the Bushwackers pocket flares or EGR.

Dont want to post the link as the previous mentioned co's are atleast advertisers on here. Im just a cheap **** on mods like this hahaha.

Was this a local place? Heck, the 20" BMF wheels I'm looking at are $1,600 alone. Tires are well over $1k.

Well, wheels & tires are purchased and on their way! Should be here middle of next week. Now the only problem I have is, how do I tell the wife?



BTW, if anyone nearby has a couch I can sleep on for a few nights it would really help me out...

Do you have any close-ups of the wheels themselves?

They look similar to mine....but I have no idea what make/model they are.
