Icon5 Cant deside!

Ok well i'm getting a lift kit soon, so i want new wheels and tries. The tires im going with are 315/75/16 General Grabbler AT2s.... I just cant deside what type of wheel i want. Idk if a polished or black wheel would look better on my truck. Here is a pic of her for reference, Let me know what you guys think on the wheel selection.

So much fun!

I say polished or chrome, because I hate black wheels. Really, though, it's your truck and the decision is ultimately yours. We can tell you black or polished all day and night, but do you really want other people telling you what to put on your truck?

Again, we all can tell you what looks good. We're all good at that.

I personally think that the Mickey Thompson Classic II's are the best looking wheels in polished (or chrome, or whatever) like Trent has.

I do have to say that I like black wheels on white rigs.

Don't tell anybody, though.

Some sort of satin black would look nice. Would make your truck look stealthy.

Go with black wheels. Then do the headlight/corner mod, and tint. It'd be sexy as sheit black on gray.
