Icon5 Which one?

Which do you like better?

Painted stockers:


New wheels:


Now, the good and the bad.

The Good:
1. They're 16x8 where the stockers are 16x7
2. They will stick out a little further than my stockers
3. They will be easier to take care of than my stock ones(I won't have to worry about painting them)

The Bad:
1. It's going to mean me spending a good bit of money(around $400)
2. I kinda like the look of my current wheels
3. Umm... I can't really think of much more.

But I want to get some of your guys opinions. Sooooo which one???

Had to edit this because I thought of another reason... I'm going for the whole white/black theme with my truck and having the DSG wheels kinda screws that up. BUT I have my headlights painted DSG so I still don't know what to do. I'm thinking get the new ones because it'll give me a little bit of "chrome"/some shiny **** which I kinda want more of.

hmmmm....tough choice.

I like the new ones because the chrome/black matches your flares/bumpers and stuff and looks good against the white.

Also i really dig your stockers. if you buy the new ones, sell me them ok thnx

Edit: i voted for the new ones so you could sell me your stocker lol

Hard choice. Stock is unique, aftermarket your truck will look just like WowMike2001

Another good reason about the new wheels. When I do my body lift and go up to 12.50's I'll already have wheels with the right width.

Oh by the way, 10 points for the person who can figure out whose wheels these belong to.

I assumed you were painting your stockers to make them look like that first picture? or are you buying them?

Zach have you NEVER seen pictures of my truck? Haha I already have the wheels that are in the first picture. I've had them for like a year now. I'm possibly/most likely buying the wheels that are in the second picture.

See you understand what I'm going through then haha it's such a difficult decision. On one hand I want to just buy spacers and keep my stock wheels and on the other hand I want to just get these wheels because in the future I could safely run 12.50" wide tires on them.

The trade? Dude... What? Hahaha I would do spacers but I think I just would go ahead and get a wheel that's 8" wide so I can run a wider tire in the future.
