Thinking about putting some 20's on the F-150 for some Bling. Help me decide by voting for your favorite:D Remember, this is a 4x4

4x4 I'm thinking I want some substance with them. I like 3 but 2 looks stronger. Just my opinion.

FWIW: I watched an Escalade with 20's follow me across a median to avoid traffic and when he went over the sharp edge of the curb back onto the street, folded the rim 90 degrees at impact. Maybe they were underinflated, I don't know but it was ugly so be careful.

I was thinking new rims until I saw that and now I can't make myself do it after laughing at him considering some of the places I go.

I'll bet he had some super low profile tires on them.......I'm still going to run a All terrain tire around this size 295/45 20 Also two of the rims are Forged....the other two are cast

BTW, the 8 lugs on #2 look cool but your F-150 won't have 8 lugs and may not look the same as in the pic.

I've tired a number of the sites with interactive rim selectors, and the rims I liked were never available as choices. One site even let you adjust ride ht.............it was pretty cool:cool:

1 and 2 look the same to me. The depth of the wheel and the 8 lug appear to be the difference?

Bob, I like #4, nice clean look w/ the hidden lugs and easier to clean. Good luck

A 5 spoke, the style of #1, with a cap to cover over the lug nuts like #4 and a set to match the boat trailer, that way with the different number of lug nuts and pattern size will be hidden behind the cap and the wheels will match exactly. On the trailer drill a hole in the cap for the bearing hub to protrude if the cover won't fit over it. $.02

Which rims did you get?Went with Ric's choice. Instead I've spend the $ on Polk component speakers, subs, and amps.

Mag, remind me to talk rims with you while I'm down there....I've got an idea :)

#4 looks pretty good to me and you have to go with the "MasterCraft" brand tire, right?
