Wheels for race truck...?

I'm doing a Regular Cab 4x4 race truck and want to put on some black wheels. I'm thinkin about a 31-33" tall tire. What rims should a guy run? 18x10?? I want to try and stay away from drag slicks as long as I can, the truck will be fully streetable. Any suggestions welcome.

I just looked through Toyo's site, browsed 8 types of "Proxy" tires.

Hey, if you get a 30" rim, you can run the Proxes-4 tire and it'll be a 35" tire! (They make 30" rims? WTF)

I would find a light weight Aluminum rim in either an 18x10 or 20x10 and run a set of Mickey Thompson Drag Radials in a 31". The smaller rim diameter would be better if you are going to do an all out drag truck. Good luck on what ever you choose!

How about these...[IMG][/IMG]

I figure a set of 20x10 for street use and a set of 17x10 for drag slicks.
