Truck is looking sweet, why didn't you go with 20s.

There were a couple of reasons I went 18” and not 20”
I wanted a four ply tire because of a better ride and this was the only 18” four ply tire I could find this big. More side wall also makes for a better ride. I also think that more rubber makes the overall package look bigger. More Brauny if that makes any sense.

Makes sense, and looks great.

How do you like those tires? I am thinking of buying the same tire because of the 4 ply. How is the ride compared to stock with the level and tires?

Anything you do to your truck after stock will ride different. I like this setup a lot. It does ride a tad stiffer than a stock 18” tire but I think it rides better than the stock 20” tires and it looks way better than stock. The nitro tires do hum a bit more than the highway tires but I think they are going to be real nice in the snow

Do you think you could have fit the Wheels on stock tires without a lift?

totally agree, i'll never have "20's" on a truck... it's just flash and impractical.
