Finally got the new tires and rims on, and couldnt be happier love how stuffed it looks, pocket style flares tomorrow, should I color match or leave em black? I cant decide, I really like both looks and if I leave them black I can throw the cash into my next mode sooner than later

Nice looking tires and rims. What size are they? I would color match the pocket flares. That's what I want to do to mine next.

Those look great. I think the flares would look good black. Also, please share the info on the specs for the wheels and tires. Is your suspension still stock or have you changed anything?

Thanks for the reply's guys, I think keeping em black will probably match up better and I love the black on white, need a bit more black so I think I will keep em black to start.
Sorry I should have posted the tire specs earlier, 325/65/18 duratracs with Fuel octanes 18x9 -12mm 4.5bs
I have the Bilsteins all around with the front set at 2.8, took off the front mud flaps just in case but I have had zero rubbing stop to stop and no problem on speed bumps either, I don't want it lifted but I may add a small BL for piece of mind.
I love these tires, this is my fourth set of duratracs I run them all year round on all my trucks with no trouble, they are quiet, great in the snow and wear reasonably well, I highly recommend them, my f350 did eat them up quit a bit faster with the extra weight but still so awesome in every way.

I love it! Those are some nice meats! Not sure about the flares though. I had a white truck that I had black flares and then painted them white. Not sure what look that I liked best.

Since you have the black wheels, and will soon have black flares, I would probably get a can of black plasti dip and spray those chrome steps to match. I put 5 coats on mine as I wasn't crazy about them and actually made them look a bit better.

I agree. Since you have the black wheels, I think the black running boards would look good.

I have the 325/60/20's on my truck. I've got 5k on them so far and couldn't be happier.

What PSI are you running them at? I've found 46-47 to be optimal. I tried 40 and had issues with wear on the edge of the lugs from turning.

I agree the running boards will need to be changed to black or removed, I will post a pic tonight once the flares are on and see what yo guys think.
I have been running 42psi and I was thinking they looked like they could use a little more, I will try 47psi and see how they feel.
What do you think about the grill, I am looking for ideas, I really think it would look great black

Looks nice man. Those are the tires I plan on getting soon - hopefully. I think you should keep the flares black, get a color matched grill with black honeycomb, and have your bumpers sprayed with linex. I think that would look pretty tuff!

Could also spray the steps with linex. I plan on doing that with my chrome ones. Cheaper than buying new black ones (I think).

Well I got the flares on, I like the look with them on but I think it looked a bit tougher without them, I like all the rubber hanging out, but my paint will thank me for them

I like it a lot. So, you went with the bilsteins all around? How you like em?

Would you mind taking some measurements from ground to fender? I'm split between leveling or a 4" lift. I don't want to lose too much practicality since I use my truck for hauling stuff as well as little kids.

Definitely stay with the black fenders.

The ride is awesome with the shocks, I am running 50psi now in the tires and it feels really tight and smooth.
Front height 39.5 inches rear 40 inches, measured through the center of tire to the bottom of the flares
