    TInt, Tonneau cover, wheels and tires.
    I know this is all over the threads, and I have looked but each situation is different, I have never done any upgrades to a truck and am trying to learn from scratch via the forums mostly. I just ordered a set of Ko2's in a 285/65r18, I am running stock trd off road wheels, for now, I also have the Bilstein 1500's for a 2015 CM sitting in the box still. I'll prob go with the top setting.

    I don't have the cash to get Tires and wheels right now, but eventually I want to get some new wheels. The 285/70R18 are ridiculous in price and I just cant justify the extra money for them, or am I completely wrong on this? Is there a better way to go that is reasonably priced?

    any advice helps. Thanks.

    Save your money for what you really want. Brands and sizes do make a change in the price of wheels and tires, but as always, shop around. Save your pennies, mods can get expensive.

    The 285 70s are a little less common than say 295 70s. You'd likely have to do a little massaging of the plastics but a lot of people are running the 295 70.

    That sounds like good tire
    That does sound like a good size to go with, don't look like the Ko2's have that size. anyone with 295 70's recommend a tire?

    KO2 is a great tire. I had them on my Frontier and they works exceptionally well in the snow so I just installed a set on my Tundra.

    Falken at3w is a great tire, talked to one of the guys from falken & they are coming out with a 295/70r18 in the next couple of months. Worth the wait in my opinion.
