Which Rims?
 
There are 5 wheel options that I can see on the configurator for the 17' F150. Which wheels will you be going with??

Never cared much for wheels so the Standard Lariat 18 inch wheels will be it for me. This will be my daily driver and nothing more than that. But I do have to say those last 20's do look great and suit the F150 well

Which are you planning to get?

Yeah that makes sense at that point, and it's not like they look bad either way. I'm thinking of going more with the the first set of 20" (the one with more spokes) as this isn't going to be much of a work horse and I'll be using it for all of my commuting and I quite frankly just like the way they look.

Yup, over the years Ford has really come around on design, pulling more from their concepts instead of leaving all of that on the table. Completely different from previous generations.


Only thing I might consider in the future is whatever wheels give it an SVT look if ya know what I mean.

I'm not too sure if any other pickup truck offers you so many different wheel options either which is a huge plus. The more customization in the owners hands from factory is always a good thing.

OneFifty 04-28-2017 03:29 PM

I wouldn't care for it since aftermarket has many to choose from, this is just more of a bonus extra. But as brands like RAM get more into special trims we'll see wheel options grow with that too.

RAM has plans for a true Raptor rival, good future wheel picking for Rebel and regular 1500 guys

PaulM 05-02-2017 02:57 PM

That's true too.

I'm pretty sure Rams rival for the Raptor will end up with a Hellcat engine as that seems pretty predictable.

OneFifty 05-12-2017 06:04 PM

That would be a good approach which got even easier since the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is coming to market. In development of the GC Trackhawk they addressed some concerns about the Hellcat engine in a bigger application.

But now the only question is when it will happen, market seems primed, but RAM is stalling.

PaulM 05-16-2017 11:40 AM

I would presume if it does come, it'll be around the 2020 mark or something and heavens knows what Ford will come out with then for the Raptors.

Those ones would do the off-road very well and still be quick enough. I have nothing much against them.
