Wheel Pictures?

Hey guys, finally springtime is here (at least here in CT). So, Im doing what ive been saying I was going to do for months. That is :

3inch AS Front Leveling Kit
3inch Rear Blocks (replacing stock blocks)
2inch AS Rear AAL

Now the predicament becomes wheels and tires. BFG All terrains or BFG Mud Terrains, depending on what rims i land on. I really like the four wheels below(my picture posting skills arnt very good), but id like anybodys input or really would like to see if anyone has a truck with these wheels. Anyone have a these rims?? id appreciate it.

All Terrains 285/65/20E (34.7)
All Terrains 325/65/18E (34.6)
Mud Terrains 35/12.5/18 D (34.8)

I like the moto metals personally.


just a quick note though. it sounds like you are shooting for +3" of rear height (3" block + 2" AAL)...that is kinda overkill.

the rear 4x4 suspension will fit 35" tires perfectly fine when stock. At most, I suggest you do the AAL...or...the 3" block. The rear shocks will only spread so far, and I think you will be running a real risk of over-extending the shock if the axle were to be unsprung weight.

Ive ended up doing the 3inch front AS, and the Real AAL which gave me 2.5 inches. MB Gunner 6's are on order with the 285 65 20 BFG AT's. As soon as i get those in and put on ill post some pictures.

Thank You. I need to get some fender flairs ordered. The tires always make the truck look dirty.

mwvdub, you wouldnt happen to have a full picture of your pickup would you? I am real curious how it looks from the side. Also, have you noticed any power, mpg loss from those tires. And any road noise with those as well?

I bought the truck with the wheel and tire package already on but they were brand new. The truck was a repo and the credit union bought the wheels and tires to help sell the truck faster. On the first tank I got right at 13 in a little city and a 200 mile interstate straight into a 30 mph wind. On the last tank I got almost 14 in all city driving. The tires are noisy as heck on the street.

those are aggresive so that will make them loud but mine are 35/12.50/17 and they are very quiet due to lugs are close together

I like the look of that. My problem is I would have to see the wheels/tires that I want on an f150 first. I am looking at the Dick Cepek DC-1. I wish there was a decent aplicator on the internet or a shop that would let me just try them on all day! :P

so many people have dc-1 that you should not have a issue finding an 04-08 f150 with them. i looked at them but i think they fit a jeep style better (in my eyes) what size tires are you thinking
