Finally Ordered Rims and Tires. Thanks to all who helped me.

I spent almost a year debating the whole tire and wheel thing but I've finally made my decision. Now I want to thank all the members I communicated with via PM and open threads, you know who you are.

As for the rims they are black Teflon coated American Racing ATX Thug's. They're 18X9 with 5.25 backspacing and +6mm offset.
American Racing: Official Manufacturer Website- custom, chrome, polished and painted wheels

Tires are Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor Prograde size 325/60R18E. I spoke to DCSpecial about these tires as he runs them on his work truck and likes them. They're about the same height as the factory ContiCraps at 33.4'' high but are wider at 13''. I really debated the Toyo MT but my driving is mostly on road with occasional slippery boat ramps and New England snow so I figured the Silent Armor was a better choice.

I'm hoping this package fits without rubbing but if not then an Icon 2.5'' level kit will be ordered. Even if the packade doesn't rub I see the level kit in my furure but I would like to wait until spring.

I will post pic's once I mount them.

Thanks
Ed

Thanks FTE/Parts Guy but I ordered everthing as a package online. However, Goodyear has a 40$ rebate going so I should get that.

no worries, just wanted to let you and anyone else know your local dealer can meet or beat anyone on price of tires. And there may be rebates for you also.

Hey, Eng1Driver,

Where did you get the rims? I am looking at getting the same but in 20" x 10" and have not found an online store that has them in 8x170 for my 07' F-250. Thanks for the info.!

J
