    I reckon I'll go 1 ton. Where is the cheapest places to get quality aluminum wheels similar to my Outlaw II wheels?

    Like these but 8 lug?

    I like pepboys for wheels. They are accessable if you need another and cheap..... at least around here. Cost around $50 for a rim there that cost around $80 at 4wp and $70 at bigO. They don't have anything spectacular, but they have those.

    What size is ideal for D-60/14B axles? 15 inch tires are cheaper I know but if the wheels rub the calipers or steering, then is 16 inch a better choice???

    I wanna get my ducks in a row as it's my daily driver!

    I used these people http://www.tomzwheels.com/ to buy this set of rims for my truck. They have some of the cheapest prices I have found, and I had no problems with completing the purchase transaction with them.

    You need steel wheels if you still want to be able to use (much cheaper and easier to find) 15 inch tires. You'll find a LOT more choices in tires if you stay with the 15 inch wheels. As for prices, check the difference between a BFG 35x12.5x15 and a 315/75R15. Both are 35's, but the ones for the 16 inch wheels cost a bunch more ca$h. :mad:
