Default Wheel Setup

Hello, I'm very indecisive on what rims and tires I should get! I'm pretty new to this forum and I've never even owned a truck, heh heh. I've posted before about what fits, but what size rims and tires should I get? Could some INers post pics of their setups so I can get a feel for what I want?

Is the truck stock height, lowered, lifted? do you plan to do anything to the height of the truck? Need more info on how the truck is setup before recommending wheel/tire setups.

It is stock height, and I would rather not lift it! Just slap some on that look nice

Mine had 18's on it when I bought it, at stock height. I thought the 18's were causing it to ride so rough so I sold/traded them for a set of stock Frontier wheels in 15", pics below are with 4x4 front fenders.

18's:



close up, this was with the front lowered about an inch, I raised it back up after:



15" Stock Frontier wheels with 215/60/15 tires:

Ahardbody, did your tires rub at all at stock height with the 18s and how wide did you go? Sorry one more Q, do you remember what tire size you put on? I like this setup!

I ran 235/75/15 tires on 15-inch steel Hardbody 4x4 wheels below:



Today, I'm running 225/60/18 on 18-inch Titan wheels below:

Not trying to thread jack but do you have to bore the hub on the titan wheel?
