    If given the chance to run any size wheel you wanted, what size would you pick?

    I'm quite happy with my set of stock 16" PYO's, think they make the old BURB look purty nice. Had them on there for over 9 years now.

    Just big enough to fit over the brakes and suspension pieces.

    Kind of dated to the truck. I like the stock size wheels. I usually go a little bigger than OE on the tire though.

    I favor plenty of rubber showing. My 16" PYOs with 285s look just about right to me.

    19.5, 22.5, or 24.5 Alcoa wheels. No one will question the weight rating of those and when done right they look pretty good IMO. Not to mention those tires will last forever on a pickup.

    Don't the Medium Duty Tires give a pretty firm Ride when used on Truck like ours though?

    I am a huge fan of stock. :)

    16 inch PY0s are fine looking wheels.

    I did pick up a set of 4 factory 17 inchers from a 08 GMC Duramax with caps and 30 percent Nitto Terra Grapplers for 275 bucks, so the 93 4wd will get those. :)

    16.5x9.75 rims wrapped with 33-12.50x16.5 rubber was always my favorite combination. I was bummed when I learned the 16.5 tire market was going away, so I got out while the getting was good. I voted for 16.5, but I'm running 16s now. I've not warmed up to them yet.

    I've found 18" are pretty versatile, can fit a lot of tire, but not too much sidewall for towing, keeps things from getting too squirrelly.

    I rode in one w/ 22.5's and it wasn't bad. I run loaded alot so really it won't bother my ride quality.

    I really like the 17" X 8.5" Hummer wheels on my truck. I run a 285 Tera Grappler and they wear extremely well with that rim.

    Those are, indeed, nice looking wheels on that body style of truck.
