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)

Once you go Black......

I also went to the dark side...
Feels like a new truck for $1,200

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

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

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

Just me, but not a big fan of the black...on everything. Guess im old school, polish or chrome
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!

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.
