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.

definitely disk brakes.....but it's not a cheap upgrade either.....how about some install pics of the system though? any interior upgrades other than stereo?

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.
