As much as you drive your truck I wouldn't go to a 26 unless you plan on getting another vehicle to drive. 26's are a huge pain in the ass. Tires are expensive if you want a quality tire that will balance. It's also hard to find a shop to mount and balance them. I wouldn't want to take a road trip with 26's just for that reason if something was to happen you would be stuck.

Yea ive thought about all of that actualy.i think i got a good way around most of it.i plan on buying 5 rims n tires.have a spare just incase.so if i do get a flat or something i can just swap em out and have the other fixed or swapped with a new tire while the spares on there.since i plan to get a tonneau cover also ill be able to keep it in the bed of the truck.

YEA HIS TRUCK IS AWESOME!! Thats y i want mine to have the same wheels and tires as he does.but apparently noone can tell me anything about them and he doesnt ever reply.lol. and you make a good point. i really like the look of trucks like this and im pretty sure i can afford to maintain them or replace of need be.all i need is for him to reply or someone else to tell me what they are or someone that knows him to ask him for me.

Start searching on the cheap wheel and tire package websites. Those don't look to be expensive and the tires are on the cheaper side too.

If you just have to have 26's there are numerous wheels virtually identical to those. Pick one that doesn't stick out so far outside the truck....that white truck looks hideous. Anyone can buy big wheels....taste is optional it seems.

Well i think his truck looks good. but i will agree with you that the wheels do stick out too far.well maybe you can help me find some.i want a similar pattern design in all black or also with a little chrome. and i deffinetly wna try to keep it inside the fender or as close as possible to it.if you could point me in the direction of some id really appreciate it alot.i just dont know anything about offset or backspacing to make it stay close to the fender.

Most big wheels like that will have a 10" wide model available. You want a max of 10" wide with 25mm offset. STick with a 295 or 305 width tire and yours won't stick out.
As far as wheel style...that's all you.
Type "26" wheels" into Google and start looking....you'll be busy for days.

It took me since August to settle on the wheels I'm having made now to replace the temporary wheels on it now. Take your time and make some phone calls to dealers...you'll thank yourself later for not jumping the gun and buying something expensive that doesn't fit.
