I had aftermarket 18x9" wheels and 285/65/18 tires on my 2011 Quad Cab 4x4 a few years back. I am now looking to put aftermarket wheels on my new 2022 Reg Cab Short bed 4x4 and I'm having a hard time deciding on which size wheel. The 18" look great on the Quad Cab, but I'm not getting that great vibe on doing this to the Reg Cab. I have stock 20" on it and it looks good, I just don't know if the 18" would look as good as they did on the Quad Cab.

Any Reg Cab Short bed 4x4 guys out there with 18"? Could you post pics, as I'm not finding much on the internet.

Thanks

Check the weights on load rated aftermarket wheels, you'll be shocked.

Can't say as i've seen or heard of anybody putting 18's on a RCSB,there's lots of RCSB trucks with 17's though,just hit up some of the regular cab or R/T sites on facebook,and you'll find lots of pics of trucks with 17's,usually called a "dragpack" set-up,as it's the guys generally racing the trucks who've stepped up to a lighter tire/rim combo in a 17 inch. I run 20's on the street,and 17's with drag radials on the rear at the track on my lowered 4X4 RCSB

I ran 18's for a few years before switching to 17's. I can't find any pics on my phone unfortunately, but the 18's looked fine imo. I'm lifted too if that matters.
Not the best pic but here's the 17's.

For weekend wheels I have 17" OEM/stock 2003 Dodge RAM 1500 fat 5 spokes that were powder coated bronze and some Firestone M/T tires.
The R/T is still stock height in this picture ...
