Trying to choose new wheels for my 06 f-350

    I just bought an 06 f-350 XLT 4x4 and love everything about it, except the wheels. I wanted the 18" standard chromed steel style, but the trucks my dealer located for me with the more important specs I needed, had the upgraded wheels with the eight circles. As much as I've tried, I just don't like them. I'm thinking about selling them and buying new wheels similar to the 18" five spoked style the Lariat has. The cost of ford factory stock are steep. Does anyone have pictures of their truck with wheels similar to those? And also the brand and price? It'd be great to see what they actually look like on the truck. Thanks-

    Take a look in my pictures, these are Weld Evo Cheyenne 8's. They're not cheap, but they are a lot less than factory wheels.

    Try looking on e-bay. I bought a set of wheels from a company called BTI. They were very good to deal with and reasonable too. I bought a set of 4 wheels to match the aluminum 5 spoke wheels on my 05 XLT Lariat with center caps for $125 per wheel. I bought them to use for a snow tire set-up only to find out that there were no other tires available in the size that comes from the factory.
