Classic II or something better.

Ok, I like the looks of the rims with at least 8 holes in them. Im in a bind and cant decide which rims I want. Theres some from Summitt thats cheaper than the Mickey Thompson's, but Idk. Will I have to keep my old rims for winter?? The DC-1 Blacks, Idk if I like em or not.... Regular dc-1s Im not sure of either. IM TOO DAMN PICKY! What do you all think would look better on my truck?

Whatever you do don't get the DC-1's in black! They look like poo, imo.

I think they look great, but just starting to see them everywhere, just like Classic II's.

i think the all chrome DC1s look like crap, but i have never seen either in person, i like my MTs, but they are a pain in the *** to clean once you go through mud...

Mickey Thompson any wheel is about one of the best on the market.....the Classic II's are a really good wheel. However my advice is if you get Classic II's is take them straight to a body shop and have them clear coated.....

actually i have found if you dry your wheels every time you wash it they really hold up well.
