Hi All:

I've had my 2011 Black AVY for 14 months now and the tires are done. The rims are well worn as well and have plastic rim covers over them. I'm looking for some nice looking aftermarket  alloy rims and a good AT tire that is well respected among owners.
I had recommendations to get Hercules Terra Trac AT II. These do have very good reviews. The factory rims are P265/70R17 113T.  I would like to go bigger without damaging the power train and/or the wheel wells. Any recommendations?
I'm open to various styles, alum alloy, black alloy and chrome.

Thanks.

Boy what an opened ended question....best looking tire and rim setup? Depends a lot on individual tastes and whether you are independent or a trend follower.
There are many many threads about many tire and rim combos on this website and spending some time reading the older threads may give you some ideas since many of them have photos and you can decide if you like that setup or not.
You might want to look at sites like Tire Rack to read about tire and rim reviews to help you decide as well:

Good luck with your search...

I second that...tirerack is nice because it shows you an idea of what it will look like.  I also recommend looking at cardomain.com

good luck and let us know what you end up with.

Thanks I will check out that link.

I was hoping some would provide what they have?
Tires I think I have them nailed down but rims, XD, fuel or just the OEM's ?
Looking for a balance of chrome/paint with still a nice bolt pattern.

Anyways thanks again.
