    Thanks! I am running 35x12.50x20 BFG KO2's on my '13 F150 and want new wheels. Wasn't sure what offset to go with. Was looking at 20x9 +20, but now I thinking I should go with more offset. Maybe 0 or something. I like how yours looks.

    Thanks Matt. I looked and labored for a long time on what offset to go with. As you go with more offset you bring in rubbing/clearance issues, but mine were't too bad. My stock wheels were a +44 offset and tucked in the fender quite a bit.

    How's the X5 diesels reliability? Bmw's scare me out of warranty.

    to be honest this was a great motor that they built which was placed in there 335d and x5 back in 09, mine being 13 the last model for this body style, they even put this motor into the new F series x5 and its great lots of torque approx. 465 ft/lb stock. Only concerns would be the normal wear and tear items, which you should expect with any car but can get pricy on BMW's. No issues with mine so far other than regular warranty items here and there. As far as towing the boat it is great did a 8 hr trip to VA and had no problem pulled like a dream and the comfort air suspension in this one adjust to the trailer weight and worked great! (Big german fan (expecially diesels, and cummins ;))

    My old 06 dodge ram 5.7. Only used for towing. Only upgrades are an audio system with a back up camera and a bull bar.

    So the expy blew its lid prior to your road trip!? Guess that means you can shut the other thread down then. No worries now. Nice looking new truck!

    That is a REALLY sharp looking combo. I like those F150's with the flat faces grey wheels. Nice setup!

    IMG_2036.JPG Here's mine..2012 Tundra SR5 Dbl. Cab. 5.7 V8 with custom exhaust setup, K&N drop-in filter, tinted all the way around (I think 10-15%?). It's got plenty of power for what I use it for.

    When we don't have the camper with us I tow the boat with our Ram 2500 with a Cummins. Little bit overkill but I love my truck.

    When we take the camper and boat my wife tows the boat with her 4Runner. Does a pretty good job. Hills definitely slow it down but its manageable
