I just don't get it. Yet lots of fellow TC'ers seem to applaud it.


Ha, I think they’re in heavy competition for the Darwin Award - lol

They line up fine. No spacers needed.

You didn't see that here. My truck is not lifted and I am not running, "...big ol tires". The Vision wheels are forged and I have a Lance, not an Artic Fox.

I was talking in general, out on the road or online.

Also, How do you know what I've seen here? LoL Ridiculous statement.

I'm glad you have vision wheels and not big ol tires. Good for you.

"You didn't see that here." was, obviously, (for most anyway) in regards to this thread topic.

So did you get the Rivals installed? Can you post some pics?
Thanks.

While not wanting to hijack your thread, but pass on info to the SRW crowd, Method Racing Wheels has a 17" & 18" rim that is capable of 4500 lbs each. Method 305 NV HD


Courage is the feeling you have right before you fully understand the situation

Big wheels place more stress on the running gear. I would never trade away Alcoa wheels (strongest wheels made) for anything else. Do you know what it cost to replace those Alcoas? They are expensive.

Also with bigger wheels will you need a small lift kit to make the room under the wheel well? Any lift will compromise steering comfort, alignment, ball joints, etc. I vote you stay with what you have and keep the speedometer accurate.
