Since my truck is a dually I'm kind of limited to aftermarket wheels. If you look at the truck magazines out there the big rage is to put Big Blingy 22.5" wheels with over sized tires on. Well, two problems with that. 1. I didn't want to have to regear both differentials to bring the engine back into the right rpm range, and 2. If I wanted a show truck, I would have bought one.

I opted for a set of Alcoa Classic 17" stock replacements with a set of BFG T/A KOs. The Alcoas are 18 lbs lighter per wheel than the stock steel wheels. The classics have a "Mirror" polish finish so they kind of give that show truck look to boot. Oh well, what ya gonna do?
