The wheels I'm thinking of going with are these.

I like em. What about these:



American racing baja. They are fairly inexpensive, polished aluminum that has the same look, they will be light and have the same look. I think they look a little cleaner without the seams. I had these on my F100 really liked them, I actually just sold them as they won't fit over the calipers I'm going to. Make sure to post pics whatever you do!

OH just had a though....our rams are 5 x 5.5 bolt pattern. The older (I think pre 1998) F150's were 5 x 5.5 bolt pattern. They had a oem wheel that is very similar to these, don't know the diameter though, but maybe you could look into it....they look like this:



I have a feeling being older they are only 15" in size though. Anyway, I once got a set for my F100 for like $50 from a junkyard, then later found out the F100 did not share the same pattern as the F150....that's how I know lol.

I like the American racing baja wheels. They are another wheel I been debating on. I always liked the looks of them too.

I like these too as they are simular, and I found these in 16x10's.

Same wheels off the Pro Comp website

http://www.procompusa.com/prodDetail...0073&plID=3626

And this is the look I am going for... These are not my trucks, just examples

Thanks. A lift kit wont be done right away, (I'm only going 3" anyway) but I do know 16x10 wheels will fit in the wheel openings at factory ride height, I asume the 35's wont fit, so what is the biggest I can put on 16x10 wheels under the factory ride height?
