Help me find rims

So at 30K miles the pirellis aren't going to make it through my winters (regular drives in 10 inches of snow). One wheel is peeling pretty bad, fortunately others are good - but it bugs me enough that I am looking for some good replacements and want some opinions and suggestions. I am wanting to stick around $250-$350 per wheel - Looking at 22s

The truck





One wheel I saw that didn't look too bad (anyone that can photoshop to help me see it would be appreciated


Looking for opinions, other suggestions, etc - wide open as I haven't found the 'it' wheel yet

Have you thought about factory takeoffs from the Harley Edition F150s? They are 22s and come in a smoked finished that would compliment the silver nicely.

The wheel + tire will probably exceed $1000. I'm not sure I want to put $4000 - $5000 into my Expedition for what's basically cosmetic changes. Center of gravity of the truck won't change so the 911s will still out-corner it. (Heck, the college girls in their Miatas will too!)

Problem is the takeoffs with tires run close to $3000 shipped.

Its around $2000-$2500 for wheels/tires from tirerack (as long as I stay away from chrome).

Chuck, my problem is that the chrome-clad stockers are just peeling bad....they look awful...I like it to look a little better

Hi guys im new to this forum. eddiemoney i know what you mean the chrome clad 20 are garbage two of mine have some real bad curb rash (bought it that way) if you like the ones from the harely you should try to look on criaglist in your local area might get some with good tires i presonaly like the 6 spoke 20's from the new f150 i think that they would look nice on the expedition FORD F150 WHEELS TIRES RIMS 20" 2012 FX4 WHEELS TIRES RIMS EXPEDITION NEW NEW NE so you get an idea of what they look like and you keep the same tire size.

the harleys can be found pretty cheap, i got the 2010 black ones 22" with nearly new tires and tpms for 1850 shipped. but it probably doesn't look as good on a silver truck.

eddie how about something like these 22" ?

http://www.cardomain.com/ride/323732...ord-expedition

Saw these on a few 3rd Gen Expy's in person and think they look great. Would like to get a set for myself down the road.
There is/was a set on fleabay.

They don't get cleaner than brand spanking new.

TascaParts.com

Not cheap but they do come with tires, lug nuts and I believe TPMS.

CTYankee is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Depending on where you are, you can get Moto Metal 959 chrome or silver/black 20's with Nitto Grappler All-terrain's for right around $2500.00. But going to 22's is a big jump in price. We don't sell much of anything larger than 20's in my truck accessory store for that reason alone.

Here's a picture of them on my truck.
