Black wheels or Chrome?

Okay guys I'm second guessing myself..

I first planned on getting new black 15x8 rims on some 32" BFG A/Ts..as well as painting my valence and other trim pieces black.

However now I'm not sure if black would look great on green? So I'm debating about just putting some Mickey Thompson Classic IIs or something similar on and calling it quits?

Ideas?

Chrome. Black is for Nancy boys.

DON'T get black and chrome wheels. Get either black or chrome. Not both.

If you get black and chrome DC-1's, I will no longer consider you a Ranger-bro, but a Ranger-no.

Once you go black, you never go back.

i concur with the statement about black and chrome wheels.

they look so ugly.

i think black would look good on that color truck.

mmmmm the Eagle Alloy 185s are sexy... And not toooo pricey. I like.

Would the truck look like complete crap if I got black wheels and kept the trim gray?

Chrome + Green = FTW

The rims Trigger has on his truck wouldlook good on yours, but if you got any other rims like black Soft 8's or something, they'd just look like cheapo winter rims on your truck.

Chrome stands out. If you have a chrome grille and bumpers and stuff, go for the chrome wheels. And I don't generally like chrome and black on the same wheel.

Nice chrome rims with white letter tires will look good.

White letters FTW.

I dont care for the spare tire look.
or the hub caps fell off look, not on my daily driver anyways.
mickys and whites! if nothing else.
blacks for the winter and wheelin trips.

if your truck is mostly off road than who cares.

I don't off-road a ton so I'm not sure. Should I get the 32" tires? I'm afraid it'll be pretty stuffed in the wheel well.. and I'm not planning on lifting my truck so maybe 31s are better for me?

Yeahhh that doesn't look bad at all. I'll probably stick with 31s though unless I can find a great deal on 32s. Plus discounttiredirect or whatever doesn't carry the 32s I want..Just 31s
