I think it is +44 and an 8.5" wide wheel. I like the Platinum wheels. They will sell quickly.

I like the look of the platinum wheel, just from experience though with work and friends f150's the ride in them is smoother. Not too mention I'm going for a slightly more rugged look

Anyone interested in purchasing a new set of 09-13 tux black fender flares? They were taken off when new. I bought with intention on a little project. I've decided to go another route. I wish I could make my mind up on mods!!! PM me if u got any questions.

I just put in a set of the piaa's both heads and fogs. Let me know what you think of the sylvania's once you've had a chance to try em out. I noticed a night and day difference (yea ok, PUN) with the piaa's vs. stock.

PIAA only has a one year warranty.

i've had em for just over 2 years. can't really see myself dropping down 175 for new ones when i could just get a pair of cheaper ones and use the extra money towards HID's... and billinvic's retrofits.

if a 2013 setup is possible...

what bulbs do the 2013's take?

is it possible to have 2013 lenses and still run the H13 bulbs from a 2010 and then upgrade to a plug n play HID kit?


if so... i may pull that trigger quicker.

I found a de contented set all black on eBay, slightly used for $390 shipped...another person is selling the remaining required oem parts such as bulbs ballasts custom wiring harness, for $425 shipped. So for $815 I have a whole 2013 oem hid plug and play set up...I could have had regular housings retro'd but then id have to wait months...oem hid still puts out much better light then halogen plus the 2013 heads are awesome looking...

Oem hid bulbs r d3s...
