Need a wheel recommendation. Specs:

17 x 9 -12 offset 8 x 170 bolt pattern.
Load rated for at least 4000 to 4500 pounds.

Steel or aluminum is fine. 8 lug pattern.

Any recommendations?

I'm not an expert, but at that high of a load rating you may have to go with OEM superduty wheels. It's kinda hard to find anything over 3600/3700 lbs.

Swapping the Gladiator to D60's?

That capacity in a 17" is going to be tough to find. Closest I could come up with was:
- Helo HE878 has a capacity of 3200.
- Black Rhino Madness has a capacity of 3640.

Stock Super Duty rims for many years were rated at around 3200lbs for 17" rims and a bit more for 18" and up.

Alcoa rims were a bit more robust, 3400 lbs I think. You might contact them for suggestions since they work in some heavy duty applications.

Ya’ll have a better chance at seeing the tooth fairy tonight than seeing me drive a Ford.
