cannot decide on black or polished...

...wheels...i'm just not convinced on either one yet. I had my mind made up on black soft 8s, but i also really like the look of polished wheels...i like the look of "prerunners" and each wheel looks good on the set up, i just can't decide which ones to buy...before i get called a poser for wanting to look like a prerunner, suspension will be coming up soon...so i'm just lookin for opinions...i know it' smy choice, but like i said i'm having trouble deciding...basically i need wheels, these stockers need to go!!! do i save a lil money now and get the cragars, or spend a good bit of money now on some AR bajas?

Josh, btw, I didn't snap any pics of the truck since I thought I might be coming down there tomorrow and you could see it in person (still a chance I might if it works out). I'll try to take some quick pictures tomorrow morning before I head off to work and I'll send them your way.

Thanks!

Man, that first pic, white fullsize with blacked out rims...throw that on a white 01 SC 4X4 Ranger XLT and it'd be just like mine...

I think you already have the wheels I got, judging by the P-shop pic you posted. Or is that one that someone has already shopped for you?

I'd say get polished rims, they might be tuffer to care for, but the outcome is so much better.
