    Depends on your plans. Most inner dually wheels are just plain steel wheels. Now if you plan to rotate all 6 tires then you would obviously want 6 purdy wheels. For me, the two inner ones are not gonna be rotated, heck i may not rotate any of them and just replace the front two tires as needed

    Most bling sets are only 4. If they're larger than stock then it'll likely be aluminum and 2 inner steelies. Some do come as a set of 6 aluminums. I'd like to get a set of stock aluminum wheels from a 4th gen just way too cheap to buy a set.

    Ah yes, Fiat, formerly know as Daimler, formerly known as Chrysler, formerly known as AMC. It gets worse every generation.

    If you're talking parent companies, it's FCA. Ram and Fiat are subsidiaries.

    Pretty sure Ram was a brand/trade name and never business entity. But I have looked at it in a while

    Probably right. If you check the manufacturing data, it probably says FCA, LLC or something like that.

    ^ I agree with this, at first I really liked the truck but I’ve come to realize it’s no ford or Chevy. But I’m stuck with it for now so I’m going to put some decent looking wheels a little window tent and maybe even a ready lift 3” kit on it and polish or at least attempt to polish a turd
