i'm picking up my first brand new ride Tuesday, a 2004 silverado 1500 2wd shortbed reg cab. It's gonna be my daily and double as a work truck. My question is does anyone think 14x7 rev. wires could handle some weight? I'm talking about pulling a trailer with about 4500 lbs, not loading the bed. I'm having doubts about wires staying true with this hefty job. i'm kind of thinking about the old school with some cragar s/s in 14x7 rev. in front and 14x8 rev. in rear, since i'm needing good grip and weight capabilities. Anyone know about these things?

you can forget about 14's fitting on that truck homie brake calipers are way too big smallest size that will fit is 16's maybe a 15's.
if it's gonna be a work truck just leave the stocks on ;)
Bro, the hardest thing in the world for me is to leave any ride alone, i at least have to have rims! I am so set on keeping the traditional look, but if it don't work then it'll be 18's for me then.

20x9s reverse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!watch!!!!!!let me try and post some pics!
20x9 reverse really ain't that deep of a rim cause the rim is so tall but anything would look better than a standard rim.

yeah reverse 20x9's are tight
did you have to have them special made?
cause most wheel company's only make standards in a 20 inch.
hell dayton only makes a 20x9 reverse rim by special order only.
takes about 3 weeks.
what i hate is them damn 20 inch standards yuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
