I started off with 22s got tired of the performance loss and driving around being careful not to hit any big holes. Went down to 20s and was happy that I did since I gained alot of tire back but the only problem with that was it was hard finding a 20 for our bolt pattern that was wide enough and that I liked, widest I found was 20x9. Finally ended up going back to stock wheels and a few weeks ago ordered some 18s by Boyd and should get them pretty soon, I hope. If your not worried about performance 20s I'd say are a good size and even then if you go forged they should be fairly light. The boze tach are good looking wheels I considered those at one point.

It's a tuff choice. From the one's you have listed above. I'm undeside on the TACH and the PT-22.

you should go staggard fitment...... nice and wide in the rear like a 20x11 and get some 20x8.5s up front..... something with a nice big lip on it so you can throw some nice meat on it for that wow factor when your looking from behind.

personally partial to the True Forged "Sleeper" with the assembly bolts in polished.....but the budget won't work for me

Well you got tires on your truck now haha. Swap the rears over. The fronts are great.

I don't have many pics.. they're not my dd wheels. What color is your truck btw?
