First off, I really like the stock F150 FX4 wheels. For stock wheels I couldn't be happier with the looks. However, I going for custom look and wanting either black wheels or gun metal wheels. Any suggestions?

Right now I'm leaning toward the 18x9 XD Monster:

check how much they weigh... aftermarket cast wheels are HEAVY compared to your stock wheels. even the stock 20" and 22" wheels are ridiculously heavy and will take a toll on your brakes and gas mileage.

For anyone that has put a set of aftermarket wheels on their truck. What are you doing about the TPMS sensors? Do you just put them on the new wheels? Or run them without? I have a set of 17's from a 2004 that I like and plan to put on my truck instead of the 18's but they don't have TPMS on them (and I don't particularly care for TPMS anyways) But what can I do about the light when I swap wheels? Is there anything you can do?

On my older F150 I run bigger tires on my truck than stock- so my spare is useless- I then put all 4 sensors in my spare and leave them there. It wont ever cause me a problem because the spare is dead weight. Not the best idea but I really hate lights on my dash. I havent had to mess with my Eco boost yet and I dont know if the new sensors react the same way as the older band style sensors.

I would stay away from anything with those bolts if you live where it snows. They will rust in 1-2 seasons and look like doo-doo.

For that reason I like the Dunes and they look pretty easy to keep clean too.
