I just got mine today :) they are boydcoddington smoothies, 20s front&rear with a front tire that is almost the same outside dimentions as stock.
I think anybody with different rims should get out the camera and post'm :thumbs
if we put'm all in here it would help other Fanatics make decisions in the future :flag

Thanks Mike for posting our picture.....they look great and now we've found that the Mothers Wax new powerball and polish works really great (on the '34 Ford's wheels) so keeping them looking so nice will be easy! :cool

I took off my running boards today to get'm painted black...
they're silver so they don't match the aluminum shine...
wasn't sure if I would want to put them back on...
they kinda make it harder to get in'n out when you can't open the door fully...
lighter without'm...
:rolleyes: hmmm...
then I turned around and looked back at black beauty :eek
the frame was showing out from under the body- it was like one of those young punks with their underware showing!
the boards are going back on the minute they are painted :flag
p.s. where's everybodys rim pics?

VERY nice, I always have liked the smoothies since they came out with them. It would be helpful if you could post your tire sizes for the rest of us. I'd like to keep as close as possible with the stock tire diameter front & rear if possible.

By the way, are those polished or chrome?

They look fantastic on the black truck and nice that they are not the same as all the other stock chrome wheels most of us have.

polished aluminum

they pulled them out of the boxes 5min. before I started snapping pics, so they're way shiney :cool
ok...I suck at typing so this is like :banghead
the wheels are the same as stock- except 20s on front instead of 19s (boydcoddington suggests 18s but I don't like that look), It's amazing how much dish is hiding in the stock wheel.
I went with Eagle HP Ultraplus instead of the RSAs (saved them for winter) they come in the stock rear size (295/40/20). on the fronts I changed to a 255/35/20 from the stock 255/45/19. Goodyear's specs say that both front tires have a 27" outside diameter, but the Ultraplus's are actually 1/2" shorter. they are both very reasonably priced at tirerack.com and the Ultraplus's have a better wear rating.
here's some side by sides :flag
