I say if you want some alloy's get some Black Pro Comp Xtreme Alloy Rims. Those won't look good on your truck. Everyone has that style IMO

For $140 bucks, they would be worth getting and painting black. But you do wheel ALOT, and they wouldn't be as durable your steelies. They would however be lighter and probably help with gas mileage. I would go for it.

Bad thing about aluminum, is that generally if they bend, to bend them back usually fractures it. With steelies, you generally have alot more flexibility, and they don't dent as easily.

Wonder how much it would be to get them powder coated black...like 75 a wheel? might be worth looking into if you want them.

Buy them!! I've been looking for a deal like that around here for months with no hope. If you want them it is definately a great deal. Personally, I'd powdercoat them black if you really want that, but I'm not sure how much that would cost you because I do my own stuff.
