I held out as long as I could. I mean I did some stuff to my Titan, all listed in my signature, but the stuff you guys are doing has inspired me. Baby steps here, I am not a rich man. On your recomendation I have ordered the PRG leveling kit, went to another vendor and ordered a single exit magnaflow cat back ($465 for stainless seemed like a good price), and I'll be at the tire store tomorrow getting a quote for a BFG AT KO. I am thinking a little bigger but nothing crazy. If I remember right they do a 285-65-18. Now I have to decide....stock rims or aftermarket? I hate the extra money an extra set of tps's are gonna add to the price if I go aftermarket. I say a second set as I would probably keep the OEM set up for winter. So I guess that will be round 2 of mods, what the heck will be in round 3.....I need some overtime!!!:eek2:

I figured if I went aftermarket I would use my OEM wheels and tires for winter. I live in the north east and we have some nasty winters up here. Here are a couple of rims I am concidering, what do ya think...and yes I know they would be hard to clean,,,but aren't they purty.

Maybe I read this wrong, but if you are going to keep the OEM wheels and tires on for winter .... why buy now?

Also, the BFG KOs would be much better than the OEM for winter, so if you get them, use them, and run your aging tires when it is dry and snow free.

That is the argument for putting them on the OE rim. I know they would be better in the snow than my good for a years, past experience has shown me that. There is only 13,000 miles on the GY's, so they would be "good enough" for winter use for a while. When things get to greasy I do have a 4X4. As for buying them now if I go with an aftermarket rim, your wright again, but I plan to keep this truck a while and storage isn't an issue so I may just do this all at once. It's like pulling off a band-aid.

One other thing, if you guys think I am going to small with the tire size let me know. I want to make sure there are no rubbing issues and I wasn't sure how big I could go with just the leveling kit.

wheels look similar to ones I was wanting... but I went with a different one when it came down to it...

I found my rubbing issues-- the plastic wheel well covers-- I saw they were coming loose for some reason, so I tucked them in last week, and ever since, not problems... so far anyway. now to make a permanent fix .

I also think the KOs will be OK in the winter, so put your TPS in the new rims and go with one set. I kept my original rims just in case, if I need them, I will deal with the flat tire light for a while.

I'll share my humble opinon...Keep the factory wheels for now, and spend that money on the suspension...If you need the most bang for your buck, for the price of some wheels you can get a set of 2" Radflos up frt and a set of DR's in the rear...Your suggested tire size is fine, good for power, good for milage and plenty of tire for off-road/snow.

The suspension upgrades will "enhance" your driveing every single minute you're behind the wheel, while the wheels look best at rest...Think about it!

P.S. I walk it like I talk it...The wheels I want are about 1200-1300 clams, but I went with the suspension mods first!

I would go with a CAI next to compliment your Magnaflow exhaust.

Excellent point. You'll get way more enjoyment from a suspension upgrade.

I've pretty much decided to stick with my OEMs wheels for now. I was looking at the Procomp chrome 6089 because they are wider than my off road rims. But they are about $800 and chrome is a little blingy for my taste, and although their 7089 black painted ones are about $600 for the same style rim, I really don't like how black rims look my silver Titan. Based upon American Racing's Try Our Wheels On Your Car. Not the same wheels but you can get an idea of black vs. chrome, and to me black and Teflon looks best on the darker Titans, (or at least ones with black door handles, mirrors, etc. as I've seen some like, here on TT).
