Talking 2011 Ram Sport Leveled

Got my RC 2.5" front, 1.75" rear kit installed last night and wheel alignment this morning... Love it. Time for wheels and tires, undecided which wheels I want to go with, looking to stay with 20's and preferably black. Looking at Rockstars, Hostages, or Monsters thus far... Opinions on these or other wheels would be great!

So far I have the leveling/lift kit, Weathertech mats and Flow 2 muffler installed.

Pics!




RC kit was pretty simple. Once we got the first front corner installed, the rest was a breeze. About 3 or so hours on the garage floor. Had to remove the front calipers for extra room to get the struts out, and the RR caliper (hoses limited movement). Spring compressors did help to squeeze the rear coils back in with the spacers installed FWIW.

Absolutely love the Rockstars but that's exactly what's holding me back...

I'm open to any suggestions, though!

that was just my opinion, I didnt meen to try and hold you back from them as they do look good and they are probably about the best priced offroad type wheel out there. Like you said, fuel has so really great looking wheels, I have been looking at bmf wheels as well but they are alot more money from what I hear but that might not be true

Tried various speeds and acceleration to check for vibrations/wobbles today..

Nothing at all in 2WD, over bumps, etc.

4WD you can feel a slight shaking when accelerating pretty good from a stop, it's definitely nothing to worry about and is just noticeable, doesn't bother me a bit, especially for the amount I use 4WD. Basically feels like mud in the wheels (and no, there is no mud in my wheels lol, it's from the leveling kit).
