Re: Chrome wheel suggestions

I want that answer too. I need tires so now is a good time to add rims. For me, I am sticking with 18" as I don't want to change the way it rides. I have searched the forums and so far these are my favorites

Re: Chrome wheel suggestions

If you use your RL as a truck and load it, consider the load ratings of the new wheels vs OEM wheels.

Re: Chrome wheel suggestions

I'll say this....I'm never buying any wheel that has an integrated hub cap/lug nut cover. I've got some nice wheels, but replacement caps don't exist and when one cap went missing, I was glad to find a single cap on ebay for the insane price of $50, plus another $15 for shipping. Also I've got one cap developing a crack where the Allen screw attaches it to the wheel, so I did a little work on the back of the cover, but I may still loose that one soon as well.

So my next set of wheels will definitely be showing of my nice, black chrome lug nuts!

06 RTL, 2011 ROTY billet cubby cover, door sills and license plate frame. Polished Billet Grills, Custom paint, 275/45R/20 Yokohama tires on Rozzi Octane wheels. caliper covers, custom airbag suspension. Kenwood DVD Player, Rockford Power T15004 Amplifier, Six Rockford Power 6.5" speakers and 2 10" downfiring subs. Custom 3 color Wet Okle seat covers. Airraid CAI, throttle body spacer, Magnaflow muffler, Truxedo Pro Tonneau Cover, Hidden Hitch, smoked head and taillights.

All the wheel models we list for the Ridge carry the proper load rating for the vehicle. For those who may be unfamiliar, the Ridge requires wheels that have a 1622lb load rating or higher.
