So the truck is mostly painted (still have to do the grill and bumper) and just stumbled upon some wheels I've always liked at a price I couldn't pass up. Even with the purchase and modifying of the $400 adapters, I came in way under budget of other wheels/tires I was looking at. These are from a 2010 Corvette. 245/40/18 (18x9) and 285/35/19 (19x10). Will probably switch to 275/40/19s out back when these need to be replaced later this year. Just need to get a sway bar installed out back, having some very slight rubbing on the inner fenders of the bed during tight cornering (which I do too often).



Love the new fatness out back





She's coming along. Just need some new paint and some interior work.

Thanks. And these just fell in my lap. Was looking through pages and pages of crappy over priced wheels, then a friend that works on my corvette (corvette and camaro accessory shop), decided to sell the wheels he got with his '09 vette so he could get new ones. The adapters ending up costing more than the wheels and tires! Still saved a ton of cash over new wheels and got the look I really wanted.

A new pic from the rear. Finally got the roll pan aligned better so I can actually take some pics.
