Here you go......I have it posted on other threads also. Might as well post one here too. After looking at yours, man, I should've waited to go for 24's.MacFly said:thx bro! i'm in the chino hills area, how 'bout you?
post some pix of your ride!
thx M4ck! i searched high and low for the perfect rims. was gonna go with 22"s but once they put 'em on, i just didn't think they were big enough. our rides is huge!m4ck said:MacFly that is a sweet ride man. Just beautiful. Love the shoe on it.
that's sweet bro! ya, as i was saying above......i got 22's and even 23's, but they didn't fit right in my eyes. so i dug a lil deeper in the pockets for the 24's. and you know, there's a huge price jump from 22/23's to 24's! not only with the rims themselves, but also the tires.Gunslinger420 said:Here you go......I have it posted on other threads also.

Inland empire / San Gabriel Valley sure seems to be the place for Armada's! I'm in Glendora.UNIT said:Mac, that is a sweet ass truck....That is the same grill that i am picking up on ebay and should have my 24's within a month. Chino Hills,,,I play at Big League Dreams in Chino a few times a week. I live in Riverside
the ride is nice! as a passenger, you hardly notice the difference from the stock shoes. as the driver, bumps on the road is a lil bit more noticable.UNIT said:MacFly, how is the ride on those 24's??? I know to expect some loss of comfort, but how bumpy does it feel?
Nice rims, but have you found any issues with the stock brakes? Several shops and wheel techs I spoke to all told me 22's are about the max the stock brakes can handle. And even with that there was a huge difference in stopping distance/time.MacFly said:the ride is nice! as a passenger, you hardly notice the difference from the stock shoes. as the driver, bumps on the road is a lil bit more noticable.
i've put on 4,500 miles on my 'mada, 4,200 miles rollin' on the rims you see there. i haven't had any problems with my brakes and although the truck is heavier than stock.....i've notice a lil difference in stop distance.PumaFiveOh said:Nice rims, but have you found any issues with the stock brakes?

I want 24-26's but am waiting to perform a brake upgrade, I just can't see the small ass calipers/rotors stopping so much added weight from the rims and tires. Especially with all the wonderful brake problems our SUV's have stock from Nissan.
yeah, i had no problems whatsoever!!! my wife drives it alot, so if i didn't feel safe driving it.....i wouldn't let my wifey drive it.PumaFiveOh said:Yeah I live in the Bay Area, so if your car didn't have any issues with the dumb ass drivers and steep hills around here then that's sweet. Good thing you brought up the rubbing issue, I completely forgot about that. I was only planning on going 10" wide with 305's...do you happen to know if that combo will rub?
I might just take the safe rout though and stick with 24's then...plus I think i would go broke trying to buy and replace 25-26" tires. Ohh yeah...were you also able to swap the tire pressure sensors on the 24's and does the system still work correctly?
thx bro, appreciate it!GCFiend said:Just missed ya McFly! Sweet rims, sweet ride! Lived off of Butterfield Ranch Road in Ridgegate! Now I'm in the desert (Chandler, AZ) I hardly see any Armada's out here.. Mostly domestic (Chevy, GMC).
By the way, Kobe's killing the team but I still love the Lakers!!
Hope they fixed that 71 by now and the 91 still sucks!
FYI, traffic is just as bad out here so don't move!!
