    i currentl have BFG 33x12.50x15 on some cheap summit steel rims that are 15x10. it cost me about $280 for the 4 rims but only have 2 with the tires on them and the other tires are on 15x8. i really like the wider rim because it make the tire look so much wider. the rims were white when i bought them because i was going to paint them and white is the cheapest. i painted them red with a few coats of clear on them...they look really good. i say if your going to stay on the street alot but still go off road then go with a set of mud terrians and the 15x10 rims.

    are you gonna leave it stock height? if you are, use 8" rims with as much backspacing as possible, something like 4-4.25". that'll help you from having to trim the fender. if its lifted, get 10" wide rims. get 15" rims and tires, they are the cheapest, and the most plentiful.

    for mainly onroad driving, i like BFG A/T's. they do pretty good offroad(except mud) and are great onroad. get either 33-12.50's, or 33-10.50's if you are stock height and want to make sure you dont have to cut your fenders.

    well i have 2 inches of lift all around so im thinking 33's will be the best i have big O big foot X/T's 31/10.5/15 and their great so i might stay with those type of tires but for the rims it is all up ofr debate i will be more specific about the rims i want chrome or alum so that might help but thanks for the ideas so far

    I've got Remington Wide Brutes, and believe it or not, they rock! I've put about 60k on them so far, and they're still kicking.
    I really like plain steel black wheels. I got 5 for under $200 at Summit.

    I got Hummer H2 wheels and love them. Cheap on eBay if you watch. I run BFG A/T's which are great on the street and do fine on rock for me.
