New wheels are on! Got em' done this morning! :)

Been working my tookus off this week but I ran down as soon as I got off shift this morning to my buddie's shop and broke everything down and got everything installed! I removed the TPMS sensors from the stockers and installed them on my new wheels. The wheels are Black Rhino Rockwells in 20 x 9.5. The tires are Cooper Zeon LTZs in 275-60-20. Last thing I need to do is go by the alignment shop tomorrow and make sure everything is up to spec. I'm very happy with the results and I think the wheel/tire combo gives the Expy a classy but tough little look to it. Definately in keeping with the "CTU" theme...

The truck is dirty so try and forgive me! lol... It was just starting to rain so I had to run out and grab a couple pics before the sky opened up! The front tire pic, with the outside of the tire tucked out, isn't exactly straight so it looks like it sticks out slightly more than it actually does. It's about 1/4" roughly beyond the factory flare. With the tire size on there now there is more than enough room and no rubbing at all on anything.

Look good. Many larger wheels just look stupid but these are a nice compliment to the truck.

Looks nice. You need tire dressing in the worst way though!

Sweet!! Your truck looks great (I have a black Expy also so I am slightly biased).
