New Rims and Leveling Kit on the Tow Rig
 
5 Attachment(s)
Got the new truck rims and 2" leveling kit installed today.The wheels are not an exact match to my trailer rims but are close enough for me.I think it looks great.Cant wait to see it with the boat in tow.I went with a 20"x9" rim with 295/60/20 Nitto Tera grappler's.

Looks great H. Quick question, how big of tires do you think you could have gone with before they started to rub?

Thanks Lake on which rig??If your asking about the truck I could have went a little bigger with no problems.For the boat 15" were the biggest real trailer rim I could find and it took a slight mod to make it so they did not rub

Talking about the truck. I have a Denali XL and was thinking about adding a 4" lift and new 20" rims with 33" Grapplers.

Lake if you are installing a four inch lift 33" Grappler's will fit no problem as long as you have the right backspace and offset on the wheels.I only leveled the front end of my truck so it would sit level with the back of the truck.I know the truck looks lifted but it's not.What wheels are you thinking of going with??

this, but a 4" lift instead of a 6" and either 18" wheels with 35s or 20" with 33s

Lake that looks great.I would definitely go with the 20" Those rims will look great on your white XL and tie the black on your boat and black trailer rims in nicely with your tow rig.

those novakanes are sick!

I want them for my f150

Sadly, those Terra Grapplers wear down way too quickly. Mine showed signs of wear at 10k, very noticable by 20k, and ready for replacement at 25k. That's on 17's, good alingment and regular rotations. At 30k there was a noticable loss of traction. I've nursed mine to 41k, but they badly need replaced, and were worn to the point I had to recalibrate my speedo to be accurate (I don't drive my truck much, which is why I've procrastinated so long).

You'll love the Terra Grappler! that is a sweet tire, I have them on my truck as well

Just an interesting tidbit of info- that is almost the exact same set up that Tim Duncan of the San Antonio spurs has on his truck.

Looks Awesome!

Thanks guys we love the rig. It tows so much better than our half ton GMC did. Dodge really stepped it up with the fit and finish on the interior and the new H.O. Cummins.
