Next is to get rid of those rear drum brakes. Please do not paint them, replace them with disk brakes. Those wheels will thank you.

You will see there is no god

they're wrapped in Nexen N3000 245/45ZR18 rubber. And after a couple of days driving on them I can honestly say I like these tires. Great grip, great cornering stability, NO noise whatsoever, that I've noticed.

Very Happy with my choice on rims and tires so far.

those are 18's? dang, I thought I was good at guessing that. Maybe it's just the lower profile tire that makes them look smaller to me.

They do have a 2" lip, and the way that they are made with the 5 spokes all inside the rim that way I find make them look smaller. Myself I find they look closer to a 17 but, they are 18's.

It's cool, I actually think 18s are the perfect size for trucks/SUVs. good proportions with the wheel well without looking gaudy.

Depends on the truck/suv IMO. for example: Ford F-150's need 22's when lowered IMO because they have a huge wheel well.
