I'm looking for new wheels for my 06 MC.

Anyone have suggestions for a wheel that has same or greater load rating as the stock steel wheels?

Preferably in black, but not required. Looking more for keeping load rating the same or higher.

Planning to stay in the 33" tire ballpark and prefer to keep the look/stance of the truck the same. Will post a pic of current setup for reference when I can.

Thanks!

Gear Alloy has some that exceed stock rating with 3700lb rating. AR are 3600lb which matches or exceeds. I think stock 17" are 3450 but it has been ages since I looked.

I know my Moto Metals are rated for 3,640lbs, but they are a 10"/-24 wheel. I initially liked a couple other wheels more, but when I saw they were only rated @ 3,000 - 3,200lbs, I moved on from them and looked elsewhere. I do know Moto makes some black, 17" x 9" wheels that are 5.7" BS, which should keep you real close to stock look/stance, and are rated @ 3,600lbs :thumbup:

Thanks. Looks like the Nitto Terra Grappler G2 for the 18" will get me closer to the 3,600 load rating than the ones for 17" wheels.

All the backspace and sizing numbers look the same except for the 18" instead of 17" on these MO98489080718. Would those still keep me close to stock with 33" tires? I mean, the wheel should just be a larger diameter, but the overall diameter should still be close to the same.

Any ideas which specific tire size would go on those to stay close to the 33"?

Thanks. That saved a lot of clicking.

Looks like it's rim width rating is just shy of those wheel's width.

LT275/65R18 E 123/120S and LT265/70R18 E 124/121R are both just under 33" and would work. Any ideas what exactly the difference is between those two? Mostly the part after the E rating.

Thanks again everyone.

Looks like the second one can carry an extra 80 lbs but only at a speed of 6mph less than the first one. And it's about half an inch taller than it as well.

So not really much difference at all.

Load index actually has more meaning than the C,D,E ratings which only apply to the amount of pressure the tire can handle. E1 is a 80psi tire while E2 is a 65 psi tire but both are E rated.

Load Ratings
Index Weight
121 3197 All new model 17 inch tires are limited to no greater than this by TRA
122 3307
123 3417
124 3527
125 3638
126 3748
127 3858
128 3968
129 4079 This is the highest I've seen in a 18 tire. (LT285/75r18 (35.2) and LT295/70r18(34.4) both are E1 rated)

Look at the LT285/65R18E125 rim witdh range is 8-10, Height is 32.5 inch which is considered a 33 inch tire.

BTW: the second number of the 125/123 rating is when used in a dual wheel configuration. Dual mount requires the tire to be derated by 9% according to TRA.
