check out KMC. they make my wheels (though my specific wheel isnt in production anymore) and have a good selection of black ones.

I'm reviving this thread, I'm still relatively undecided. Logic tells me that if i must have wheels, that i should buy 16's and save some green. But Darn! those 17's and 18's would look so good.

For 16" wheels, i have decided Pro Comp 8179.





For 17's, Pro Comp 8115 with 265/70 terra grapplers (31.5 x 10.5)



For 18's Pro Comp 5806 with 275/65 terra grapplers (32 x10.8). Can't find anyone who owns a set of these.



These also look awesome!

What do you guys think?

Can't get them in a 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern in anything other than a 17. I really don't want to lift (not yet anyway), so i don't want to go too big on tires.

If i act pretty quickly i could get the 18's i have pictured for under $400.
