And whats wrong with either one of them? They look good and they are reasonably priced. I know some people want to be different.

I think I would get them in black, because my truck is black too. I dont know havent decided yet. anything beats the my stock ones tho. I just want somethign better looking and cheap. I think these are the ones. and ill probably end up going with the 15 x7 because they are the cheapest

Chrome sucks in the winter, any chrome does, the salt gets to them and they rust and you have to scrub them alot....But its worth it in the summer....Get some pro comp all terrains, they last long and they do great if you do go in some mud, some dont like them but i think they are awesome compared to bf goodrich, pro comps have alot deeper tread too

Yes the chrome sucks when salt comes out, but in the summer they look good.....just have to scrub them alot during the winter, i think i waited too long to scrub mine so they will have alittle rust on them...
