Ok guys, so I'll start out by saying I have yet to get sick of my hoss wheels on my truck. Still love the way they look and get a lot of compliments on them.. But. They took a hit from some kind of road acid something or other and in certain spots they have like a bunch of little light dots on them (can't see till you get up close). They also have 1 PA winter on them, which didnt help anything either.. Right now I think I could put a little time into them and polish them up, but with winter fast approaching, I don't really have the money right now to buy a set of different wheels and tires. Hunting expenses got the best of me this year..

So my newest little thing I thought of would be to run the hoss all winter, then in the spring just switch out my brand new tires I have on them over to a nice new set of BMF novakanes.. haha. What do you guys think?

Heres a pic of it with the Hoss.

another option could be to find some cheap 8lug wheels off craigslist (16") and run them for winter. They wouldn't look as appealing, but if you threw some black paint on them they wouldnt look bad IMO. And there's always a plethora of 16" tires on craigslist. at least around here. Would probably be a fairly inexpensive setup for you. Cheaper in the long run cause you wouldn't have to be buying brand new wheels in the spring either. Just my 0.02.

I mean I really do like the Hoss... But my trucks looked the same for a while now. I'm gonna search craigslist for some 16" steelies too. BMF's would really change the look of my truck. I just need to decide if its a look I want.

Agreed, but that's all up to you. It's also a look that tons of other people have.. just a thought
