Default which wheels you like?

08 mineral gray with 275/60/20 cooper discover at3's.


Ultra has a +18 offset, platinum and eagle have a +15. All 20/9
Ultra and eagle have a nice configurator to get a better idea. Wish my truck didnt have so much chrome! Cant do chrome wheels up here in the winters so a silver black combo will have to do! Theres just to many to choose from.



ultra crusher

Platinum Diamonte

eagle alloy 027

It is hard to tell, by just looking at the rims.

Of the three I say the eagle alloys with well painted calipers. Might help your decision though if you could photochop them on your truck and see what looks best when placed on your truck.

I added a thumb nail of my truck
Wife likes the crusher, i like em all! Im just scared with any wheel it will look to flat and not like the pics on the web.
Kinda just threw in the platinum cause it looked good on the configurator, probably more for a lowered truck though

I'm partial to the ultra crushers, but that is just my opinion for what it is worth.

I prefer the ultra crushers too. It took me a bit to figure out why, but it came to me. Apparently I'm not as fond of wheels that appear to bulge outward. I like the design where the spokes and centers give more the appearance of pulling in toward the axle. Obviously just a personal preference. I guess if someone put a gun to my head and forced me to accept a free set of the other two wheels, I'd have to cave and accept them...LOL! All of them look quite good, really.

i vote for the ultra crushers also. everything is a personal choice though, but to me they look like more of a "truck" tire than the other 2, if that makes any sense

Thanks for the votes

I to like the crushers as long as they dodnt get so flat, kinda look like the kmc xd addicts which was my 1st choice but then saw they were alittle too flat black for me.
I like the ultra mavericks and barons also but thought it might be too much of a differant wheel.
Vision vtec wheels are sweet but my shop cant get them!
Hopfully i make up my mind soon, i just need to stop looking at them all!
I have a saved folder with all the wheels i like
