I rode on 22s for almost the longest.  I sold them and went back to stock for all of 2 or 3 months.  Found a good deal on 24s so I had to jump on it. 

Before with 22s

Well after a long winter, time to start looking again.  Be getting summer tires/rims to swap with my factory 18's and winter tires with studs. 

Narrowed it down to 10 different rims.  Choice is a good and bad thing sometimes.  Going for more of a classy look with a small center hub, just not  afan recently of the big center hub (althoguh my last truck had them)  Since this is a family truck to, want something more classy looking.

Since I will be using my truck as a truck and for hauling a camper and water trailer, Im not pimping it out with bih 24" rims and thin rubber.  Just upgrading to 20" with a set of Goodyear Wranglers.  I had those on my last truck and the rim protector side walls gave the tires a beefy look.

Models I have picked are

Helo He-869B

American Racing AR894

Liquid Metal Dyno

Cruiser Alloy - 904MB switchblade

Dip Gunner D88

MAAS 031B Stirling

Pinnacle P35 Elite

Core Racing Gambler

Diamo 17 Karat

Liquid Metal Magna

I will post pics when all is said and done

I have some wheels and tires picked out, just need to wait for approval from the wife before getting them. I tried sneaking them in last time on the other truck, she noticed the 1300.00 deficit in the checking account. :beating:

looks nice with the color of your AV to.

That was one of the main reasons I got this one, black to go with the black trim here and there and the silvcer to go with the paint.

Also wanted a small or no center cap since I think the AVY is more of a classy vehicle than an off road mud truck.

Not saying bug center hubs arent nice, had them on my old truck.  Just like the clean look of this

Guess you might as well join the lifted nation. Those wheels and tires alone have added a lift to your truck before the lift needed to get them to fit.
Other than that I see a lot of front end suspension and steering parts replacement in the near future for you. Those wheels and tires are going to wear the hell out of your brakes, tie rods and idler and pitman arms.

Besides that they look really good IMO
