Those wheels are pretty slick, would look great on my white quad cab...
What brand and where'd you get them and how much?
thanks

I found them locally here in Toronto, I am sure they are just about everywhere But I have yet to see a place that advertises them. They are called VIP Wheels, I got them for $175 each CND. I am not sure if they have any in the US http://www.vipwheels.net/

Contact them maybe they can tell you.

Default New Tires

I had nothing but problems with the Michelins so I took a loss and bought me some Cooper Zeon LTZ 305/55/R20. I am loving these tires so far

Looks awsome! How are the wheels and tires working out? Just ordered a set of these rims with the same Zeon LTZ's but in the stock 275 width.

I am loving the combination, it comepletely changes the look of the truck.

I do have to say that the wider tires are harder on gas than stock may also have to do with the thread pattern. I'm sure there is more rolling resistance.

The lower gas mileage issue with wider tires is why I decided to stay with the stock width. These Hemis aren't the best on gas as it is! Plus I couldn't justify an extra $150+ a tire to go with the 305/55's even though they look wicked!

They did not cost me a penny. I had so many problems with the Michelins I had before these, the shop didn't charge me for 4 new coopers. I do have to say the Michelins were so much better in the rain. But, these Coopers look so dam good, that's all that matters

Stock suspension, only rubs at full lock in reverse both sides. They rub on the sway bar so never any damage. Turning radius hasn't changed it is only at absolute full lock.
