Default Help me lift/wheel my 2014 Ram Sport!

Hey Guys!

This is my first time doing any truck modifications. I wanted to see what your recommendations are. I currently have a Dodge Ram 1500 Sport Quad Cab with 10000 miles on it. I've been wanting to do a lift and black wheels since I bought it, but I've held off until now. Now I need the experts (you!) to help me out with some recommendations.

I've been working with a local custom truck shop that I have a lot of confidence in. I originally was sold on doing 20" BMF Novakane's until I learned they don't offer the dodge pattern...so I had to go back to the drawing board. My truck will have a RC 4" lift with 35" Nitto Terra Grappler G2 Tires. I will be putting color matched fender flares on it and I have exisiting chrome lined running boards that I plan to keep and possibly rhinoline over time.

However, since I had to start over with the wheel, what would you recommend? I have been looking at Fuel Hostages but I'm not sold on them. Any advice?

Here's what my truck is going to look like, minus rims:



Here's what my truck currently looks like:



I'd really appreciate some help as I'm hoping to make a decision tomorrow or Monday!

Thanks guys!

Black fuel hostage would be sick. Whatever wheel you go with I'd get a -12 offset with those pocket flares. Good luck man.

Plus 1 the -12 offset. Wheels are all about choice. There are so many out there. I like these personally. The only bad they lowest offset is a +1 which will still work.

Hostage III D568
