    I bought some new business about 6 months ago, finally threw them on the other day ......... and I don't really like em.

    They don't look as "cool" as envisioned it in my little pin head.

    Oh well.
    It be, what it be!

    (the old rims / tires will in the sale section next week)

    Always liked the look of a black truck with chrome wheels...

    I’m a fan of the new look. Easier to clean also.

    I've always liked polished and shiny, but the black and silver wheels look good on black vehicles, I concurred a few years ago.

    I like the smaller wheel with more tire look. The new wheels are too big.

    Sell the new ones, keep the old ones and have them powder coated.

    I agree with that to a point. The old 15's with 35+" look pretty bad too. I like a good rule of thumb to be 60% of tire diameter at Max for wheel diameter.

    Racist!:D

    I like black wheels but then, I live on a dirt road so black doesn't show the dirt as much.

    I also hate large diameter wheels, especially on a lifted truck. Small wheel, big tire always looks better to me.

    Absolutely. I think 35’s with a 17 inch wheel or 37’s with an 18 inch wheel are Max wheel size

    I normally like chrome over black wheels but I think the new ones look much better!

    Me too, Also most wheels have to much odd shapes. Still like a simple weld or centerline look

    Ya, I hear ya.

    The Old were 37x13.5x18rim
    The New are 37x13.5x20rim

    The next set of tires will be 39's or 40's to offset the bigger rim.
    But that will be like 6 or 7 seven years from now, with the miles I put on this turd.
