Pictures pictures pictures!

The main difference between black and white (Minus color obviously)

Black needs to be babied to keep looking good.. dirt shows hardcore, and swirl marks suck..

White is much much easier to keep looking good, but its the hardest color to match up in case you ever need to touch anything up.

Dont listen to these guys. Black is where its at. Sure its hard to keep clean, but when its all shined up, its the best color EVER!!!! Plus white makes your truck look like you work at Autozone lol

the only way I would go with black is if it was matte black, I wanted to do matte black on my truck but its just too expensive(if you want it done right) but otherwise white for sure...looks better and stays looking clean wayyy longer than black

Trust me black is a pain in the *** to maintain. I used to have a white car, much easier to keep clean and little scratches / swirl marks don't show up as bad.

I'd go with red if your gonna do black rims.
