19.5" wheels

I was wondering where to look for wheels. The Alco's are beautiful that come on the F450's but im not a pollished / chrome guy. So i was wondering if anyone made a more tough looking wheels that can be powercoated or painted. The thought of the factory ones in the mud makes me kida sick.

Also where do you look for tires. I looked on tire rack and they have nothing for a 19.5' wheel

The tires on the F450 are truck tires. You need to find a commercial tires store in your area. Steel wheel are gray painted or white or black powder coated. Other colors can be done at a local powder coat place, you buy the gray wheels and get them done. Colored wheels can look good with some chrome lug nut covers.

You powder coat steel wheels. The temperature of powder coating process is to high (400 degrees) to safely do on aluminum. Also steel wheels are much sturdier for off road applications.

My wheels are holding up flawlessly. Even with 14,000 pounds behind the truck. Powdercoating doesn't weaken aluminum.
