Lookin at some rims....

http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/9103/0702091422.jpg my bro said he can get me these rims, for $100.im thinkin about it, but i dunno if they will look good on my truck now(old pic but shows rims best)= http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/6277/0608091656.jpg

http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/7025/pict0002cbo.jpg latest pic of my truck.

he also showed me the same ones, but aluminumish color. im debating, $100 aint but, but then again nothin wrong with mine.just the opportunity i guess, and maybe changing the look up, for the better maybe i dunno cant decide. heres a pic of what the others look like, found this pic on google. im planning on eventually painting my whole truck black, and get a white or blue pinstripe.

so what im getting at is, what would you do? get the rims, or skip?

black wheels would look good on your truck. You should do the pinstripe removal mod.

If you keep them clean, I don't think those orig chrome wheels look that bad.

im gonna say aluminum, blacks ok. it just depends on what else youll have to match it all. dont cheap out on wheels though. get what looks good. wheels are what gives a truck its look and sets everything off.

If you can get the aluminum ones for the price I would do it, the steel rims look good and all but at the same time they look cheap to me (Imean not quality but just flat cheap looking...I mean no offence to anyone with 'em). The aluminum rims always look good,especially when shined up and they weigh less
