Black wheels thread

Im currently going to be getting new wheels in spring. Im going one size bigger to an 18, not sure about 20s or not. Im lookin at the black KMC XD series Rockstars... BUT Im not 100% sure on them. Also lookin at the KMC Hoss wheels, Revolvers or even the Spy's. I like the black wheel with some polished accents. Anyone have any other ideas? Thanx

I really like those ProComp wheels. I think Sea-Bass has some for sale.

Moto metals are cool too.

I like the 'stars, RBP's, and the XD Diesels. The Maxx 6's are too much like your current wheels anyways.

I say the diesel's or 'star's cause they are the 2 "least common" wheels you mentioned

If he can't, depending on if he's planning on wheeling much or not, he could always run wheel adapters

That true, and I'm assuming if he's tossing the idea of possibly 20's there will be limited to no off pavement driving. But in saying that I think those wheels look bad ***

Yeah, I agree, completely badass. I think maybe they'd see the same amount they see now, occasional offroading, right chris? Sully, this look familiar?

The Monsters or Hoss's are also badass. Those 2 tacoma's look pretty good, for what they are, Wanna be trucks.

tacomas and tundras are great trucks lol id say the rangers were inferior... but that only because the tacomas are more a match to f150s and tundras to 250+

The big problem with the new taco's are that they have a Polycarbonate bed. God help your pocket book if you ever get enough force to crack it.
As well the tundras are only rated as a Half ton truck, Have you ever seen a tundra towing a trailer? The rear spring are really soft.
Besides that, Taco's ftw

I meant Tundra's, sorry.

Ok, Here's the link.

Now, go to the "Silver Creek Durability" and watch the Tundra Vs the F150. Watch and see the Tundra fail. KTHNXBYE

You don't have a clue, do you....? The Ranger is a compact truck, the Tacoma is a midsize, the Tundra is a half ton, and the F150 is a half ton. Compare sizes.

Ranger(Compact)<Tacoma(Midsize)<Tundra(fullsize wannabe)<F150(fullsize) The Tundra is in no way comparable to an F250..

It is. But I've been a grouch lately, and I felt the need to correct him about the Toyotas. Now, back on topic
