I say 24's...26's look big time but potholes can screw up your day. I have had friends loose big dollar wheels with potholes is Beantown and we are nothing compared to NYC.

If I lived where it was nice all the time I would have 26's, but where I live and drive 22's are the limit.

nofinga - like i said earlier i think 24's. I, like yourself, used to have a bagged ride. I know how much of a pain in the a** it is to worry about your ride every crack in the road, never mind a New England pothole (hold on and hope nothing falls off). Even though i think 26's look the best its allot more cash and i would think a much harsher ride that can rattle your car after a few years. I'm in the process of picking up an 07 EXT and i will be doing 24's if anything, because its going to be a daily driver that i don't want to worry about the nasty craters we got in Mass.

Good Luck,
NH

I always stick with 24s...

BUT.... if money is NOT an issue for you where if you hit a pot hole and blow up a tire or two, and can replace those tires no problem, then go 26s.

Me, I cant afford that sh*t. lol.

I'm in the same position as you, and like nhernandez, I'm from Mass where we have horrible pot holes. I don't even know if I'm going to go with a 24, I might just stay with a 22. There are some potholes in my town that are close to 2 feet wide.

2 feet aint nothin...right on my ave. i got one about 6ft. that has been around longer then me...i have to go into the oncoming lane to avoid it lol....but im more worried about losing speed and acceleration...also i have always had 22's and def. want 24's or larger

You acceleration will suffer. The speed will improve.

I had 22x9.5 on 305/45/22's and upgraded to 24x10 on 285/40/24's.

I went from a 31" overall to 33" overall.

I definitely noticed the truck lost some acceleration. The 24's weigh more and the larger overall diameter effected the torque. I know its only 2 more inches and probably only 5-10 more pounds of weight per wheel, but I noticed my truck was quicker with the smaller package.

As for speed, the weight and rotating mass when on the highway was better with the 24's. The truck also felt more stable with extra weight down low.

In the end, for me, the 24's look killer. Blow the 22's away. I do wish I had more performance, but you need 22's for that. And I like the looks of 24's.

IF you can swing 26's go for it. If I could I would, but thats a bit too much cheeze and I'd rather spend the extra dough elsewhere.

Just my 2 cents.

well i know if i get 24's ill regret not getting 26's...but only because of the size difference....let me ask it this way..how much of a difference would there be in acceleration between 24's and 26's...ride quality? and would 26's do any damage to my car because when i got it, the guys at the dealership told me anything over 22 will cause damage to my truck eventually...but i find that hard to believe since the truck has such a high towing capacity ..i dont know i could be wrong...thats y im here i need ur guys help :confused:

26's hands down. you just cant beat the look. I have some Giovannas on the way. We dont have to worry to much here in miami about potholes just pot houses. I cant wait... Anyone know anything about the Mcgoughys 2 inch spindles?
