Changes over thanksgiving (pics)

Hey. Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. I went back home and my brother (sanityaside) and I swapped out our rims. What do you all think?

yeah i definitely like the black look. think it makes my truck look allot meaner. Ill definitely rock these though. they are especially appreciated because i havent been able to regear yet. The lighter weight wheels definitely make a difference

Yeah thats what I was about to say, the classic IIs are way lighter. It doesn't look bad at all, I just like the whole black and white thing you had going.

I wonder how the classic IIs would look powercoated black? You'd get the weight of the aluminum rim and the looks of the black.
