    I got tired of the look with 20 inch wheels, (like every other newer truck today), so I went back to 16's.

    Super hard to find but these are 16x12 mickey thompson wheels and 35 inch mickey thompson mtz's

    Changed the look of my 2006 duramax big time.

    Much better looking!

    @Frankenchevy most of the IFS Chevy trucks require the whole front cradle to be dropped. IIRC you even have to cut of one of the OEM diff mounts from the frame to clear everything.

    Sometimes I think about switching out the 20's on my Duramax long bed but, these are not too bad.
    I have LT285/75-16's on my other Duramax.

    I think it looks bad ass either way. I'm biased though.. I got big rimz with aggressive tires.

    I’m a big fan of OWL! I’ve actually thought about the iron on ones to put on sports car tires for the cars! But I’m too fcking old to pull that off!
