That wheel/tire combo is 10k+ alone lol.

Normally yes, but while we were in miami we went to american force and my buddy picked the wheels up for 7k out the door, i joke that his tires cost more then my whole truck, but they actually do. Yah its amazing what hard work can do.

7K! I was choking on $1600 for rims and tires on my 2500HD. That is a sick amount of money. Looks cool but dam not that cool.

I agree but if i made 30,000-40,000 a month i probably wouldn't care about 7k on wheels and tires, its all relative to what you make and have for bills

It certainly is relative, but wow, that is like 25% of the value of the pickup. The nice thing about a set up like that is you dont have to worry about everyone in town buying the same wheels as you have.

7k for the rims and about 3k for the tires. My buddy has the same setup on his 2011 Ram 3500.

I ended up at around 4k for mine. Tires cost as much as wheels do going 22"+

Would not want to polish those wheels all the time either.
