cragar soft 8s or d-window?

im having trouble deciding which wheel to go with for my truck. i like both of them. i like on the d-windows that it has a more edgier look i guess but i dont like the red and blue stripe on the edge of it. as for the soft 8s i like the fact that its completely black but its roundish looking and my truck is already round looking. does anyone know if the stripes on the d-windows come off? if so i would get it in a heartbeat. but the soft 8s are cheaper. idk give me your opinion. oh and i will be upgrading to 31s and adding 2" of lift in the front to level it out.

D-window w/static wheel balance. I've been static balanced for 10k miles and I can't tell any difference in the wheel balance at highway speeds compared to regular dynamic wheel balance.
