Do you want all terrains or mud terrains?

Do you like the more blingy rims or the classic style like Mickey Thompson Classic IIs or black steelies, etc, etc.

Unless you need mud terrains I'd go with an all terrain myself. Much better road mannerisms and tread life.

There are a ton of good wheel choices. Just depends on the look you are after.

i like the mud terrains but in my case i dont really need them, its a daily driver, and as for the wheels i lik the classic 2s not a big fan of blingy, but i do want chrome or pollished aluminum. I like alot of tire and a little rim, thanks for the opinions!

I would go with 15s then, as long as they'll fit. It will be cheaper overall and looks good with a 33" tire.

If you want to spend the money I love my BFGoodrich KM2s, they ride really well for a daily driver too. They aren't cheap though

BFG ATs are good, Goodyear Duratracs are good, Nitto Terra Grapplers have good reviews, etc, etc

Yeah i wasn't sure if the rotors would allow you to use 15" or not. 16" will work fine too, just cost a little bit more!

99 F150, 4x4 I guess? I'm assuming the "lift" is from torsion keys?
I think I would run something a little smaller, like a 285. A student of mine had an 01 or 02 with torsion keys and 285 and it looked good, but I don't think I would have gone much better with that setup myself.

285's are perfect in my opinion.
