Black wheel help

I would really like a set of black wheels with chrome/polished/machined accents.

I won't do any lifting, just a t-bar to level out, so nothing HUGE.

Got any suggestions for me? Links? Brand Names? Pics? I'll take anything.

So far i have come up with Moto Metal 951's, but only in a 16x9 or 17x9.


Gear Alloy 712, not too crazy about these, 16x8 17x9

I like those, but i'm just feeling them on my truck.

Completely unrelated, but where did you get the EDGE Off Road decals?

I also like these, not as much as the Moto Metals, but they are cheaper and 17x8 oppsosed to the MM's 17x9. So no rubbing issues there. Sully's Ranger used to have a set, now on Freddie's truck.

The Procomp ones are gloss, they are the same wheel aside from that.

Their lip is slightly different too, but they are the same wheels and are made in the same place side by side.

I would probably go with 16x8 because i have a set of 245 75 16's with less than 8k on them, i could finish getting my use out or them.

For something that I could getaway with on my truck, I really like the stance of yours. Do you have lift or just the bigger tires?

That ProComps are Flat where holes in the wheels are, my Eagles are round, kinda bowls shaped. They look a bit different.

ibowl9 - undestandable. i needed tires and i paid just $70 more for 15" wheels with tires than I would have paid for just tires to fit my stock 16's. Plus they got me the rear wheel drive offset i wanted.

boborone - thats exactly what i was thinking. when i bought the truck it had 1" blocks in the rear and the t-bars were slamed down. So i jacked them things up and through on 31's

Now...my suggestions.....

Pro Comp Xtreme Alloy Series 5806. Never seen 'em on a rig before....and is very clean as i personally like...gotta bump up to 18x9 since they dont make anything smaller...BUT....17s and 18's look DAMN good on rangers.


Pro Comp Xtreme Alloy Series 7189. Pretty sweet lookin', and spoked design like you want. AND avaliable in 16x8 as well....


And of course i'm a little partial to my Pro Comp Xtreme Steel Series 51's....

Found them $468 shipped to my door. Not too bad. I'm going to do a little research on the cost difference in getting just 16 inch wheels, and getting 15's with tires.

KLC did a photoshop for me, give you an idea.

Definitely would turn the tires blacks out. The more i see Trigger's wheels, the more i like them. Kinda torn between the spoke and bullet hole designs.

You have 15x10's, the ones in the pic aren't as wide. I have 15x10 Procomp 1069's (same thing just polished and have a smooth outer lip) and they are shaped the same as yours. They are the same wheels.
