Top Wheel and Tire Packages for YOUR TRUCK!


If you’ve ever wondered what wheel and tire package matches
your driving style best, today we’re gonna cover the top five wheel and tire packages for your truck. Now to kick things off
we’re gonna start with the off-road package. Now a lot of times what
we’re gonna see you guys do is run those smaller sized
wheels with more rubber, more tire I guess on those wheels. So a lot of the times one
of the most popular ones that we see is gonna be Method
Race Wheels or Anthem Wheels. Now Method’s been in the
game for a long time making light, fast, strong wheels
is kinda their motto and Anthem kinda the same story. They’ve got the Anthem
Democracy where they’ve just been making wheels that people want, in these off-road packages
you’re gonna see a 17 by eight and a half or 17 by nine,
maybe an 18 by nine. But typically no larger than that, and when it comes to
figuring out what size tire you want to run I would say a 33 by 12 and a half is very common. But that really depends on what
application you’re running. On the complete opposite
end of the spectrum, you have your street truck look now, one of the popular options
I see here is gonna be something like the Gear Big
Block, or a Moto Metal 962 wrapped in something like Nitto 420s. These are just this very
sticky, very aggressive looking street tire, not aggressive
in the sense of off-roading but aggressive in the
sense of you feel like you’d see it in an Audi,
or Wraith or Lamborghini or some sort of exotic
car, just with the way they have the tread pattern designed it’s just a very aggressive looking tire. You’ve got your OEM plus guys, which are typically gonna be running an OEM replica style wheel. So OEM reps are available
in your typical sizes that your OE manufacturers
would equip your truck with. But they’re also available
in larger sizes too. So we’ve seen people go
with 24, 26 inch OE replicas and then again just
wrapping them in pretty much whatever tires you can find. Usually whatever’s cheap and
available on the website. So you can actually sort by price when you’re building these packages to see the lowest price
option that’s gonna work with your vehicle. There are the guys that just
drive their truck around every day, it’s their daily driver the basic get to work
vehicle, maybe a commuter. A lot of times we’re seeing
people go with something like an Ultra Hunter wheel,
something that looks good but isn’t gonna break the bank,
still has some style to it, you know you don’t wanna run the OE wheels because it’s just not as
exciting so you get something like the Ultra Hunters and
again you’re wrapping it in pretty much whatever
tire is available for you, at the price that fits your budget. Now if you put a ton of highway miles on, you might want to pay a little bit more for a tire that lasts a little bit longer. But if this is just your commuter and you’re not going that
far, or you’re not concerned about mileage, wear, or doing
any sort of mild off-roading. You can pretty much select
whatever the cheapest option is on the website that you think looks good. Lease for number five
we have your show truck, so this is the guy that goes out, they’re gonna get the
26 by 14 Arkon Lincolns it’s a cast wheel but it’s
still proper directional, it’s available in multiple
finishes if you get it in the big chrome ones it looks
like a giant forged wheel, but you don’t have to quite pay for it, and then typically most guys
are throwing on Fury tires only because Fury is one of
the few manufacturers of tires that actually makes tires
that fit these wheels. That aren’t giant, so
what I mean by that is, you can have a 26 by 14 and you can run a thin rubber band tire,
some people would call it. You don’t have to run a 42
inch tire just to get it to fit on that 26, so again like I
said it’s gonna be something like an Arkon Lincoln
wrapped in some Fury tires, it’s a very very show truck look. So if you guys wanna
check it out for yourself you can actually browse millions
of wheel and tire packages. Like these, at sdwheel.com.
