    just wait till you get the 3/4 or 1 ton so you won't have to buy an extra set of rims /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    No problem. OK, my advice is to buy rims that fit the tires.

    Seriously, I could give all sorts of advice on lots of stuff, including wheels, but you really haven't given too much information. I assume that you want to continue using the claws when you get the 8 luggers, so I'd say go with 16" wheels to avoid grinding on the 8 lug front axle when you get it, which you'd probably have to do on 15s. I'd say get 15x10 with 4.25" BS or 15x8 with 3.25" BS, depending on the width of the tires you're getting.

    That could be awhile. I am a college student, and i pay for everything, books, school, apartment, ect. I work 48+ hours a week and go to school full time, my funds are limited with all those things. I think im just going to go with black rockcrawlers.
