There are quite a few to choose from, but not that carry Mickey's in stock. I think your best bet is to do what I did. I went through Discount Tire (America's tire), but you should be able to do the same through any shop that wants to earn your business. First, you'll want to find a shop that can get Mickey's, if that's what you're dead set on. Call around and ask if they can get 'em. Discount was able to order wheels that weren't on their website, but I didn't ask about Mickey's. Once you find a shop that can get them, have them order 1 wheel, a "blem" if possible, that way they could even mount a tire on it and fit it on your truck. Again, they'll do it if they want to earn your business. Discount did it for me. This is the best way to be sure of your clearances, especially if you're planning to upsize and change the offset of the wheels. Pick out a few different wheels that you like so they can order 1 of each. They should not charge you extra for shipping of any wheels you decide not to keep. Hope this helps.

I just fought this battle as well. I found the best online price i could for the wheels I was considering and then emailed discount tire company in my hometown and they matched and beat it by a few bucks. Worth a shot to shop around on various sites ( tirerack, national tire and wheel etc,) see what they have to offer then contact a local shop and see if they can do any better for you. Best of luck and keep us posted!

Good point. Also, remember that they're going to give you a better deal on the installation for buying the wheels and tires through them, so be sure to get estimates on installation if you're ordering online.
