DC-1s (Blacks) on my truck, personal opinions.

Hey, Im really considering these DC-1 Black wheels like many others seem to be, and I just figured id show you guys a pic of the truck, and see what you all think. Another thing is if I get them, should I save money and just get 15x8s and reuse my stock tires or get the 16s and then have to buy new tires to. The truck is a street only truck by the way.

I dont think they will look good on a blue truck, go with polished or chrome version. They will look alot better.

Well, I was also planning on getting different lights, such as the black headlights and tail lights to go with them.

If you think it will look awesome on your truck then why ask. Alot of people will think that the black DC-1s will not go with Blue and to go with either the polished or chrome ones. I hate to sound rude

Yeah man I agree, however I was still curious on the whole size thing if I should stay with 15 or go 16. I think with those different lights, and those wheels, it will give it a whole new look, and it should look good. Also your truck looks awesome

depends on how much you want to spend on tires next go around.

15" tires are cheaper.

16" wheels would be cheaper in the short run but more later when its time for tires.

you have stock tires which suck IMO, i say get 15s and new tires.

lol theres like 2 or 3 people on here that have them I think. Besides, just because they are popular on here doensn't mean theyre popular here in my area where I live, I sure havent seen any around here.

15x8 would be your best bet cheaper down the road
as in using your stock tires i did it only because i have only 16grand on them and broke lol

like you have not seen it before but here is a 235/75r15 on them not bad but needs at least a 31

i dont think they would look bad on a blue truck maybe some one can photo shop it for you
the chrm one would look good too

Ide say chrome on a blue truck....www.4wheelparts.com has polished and black for the same price! Only downfall to polished is you have to stay on them constantly for em to shine

polished is just raw aluminum while chrome is chrome platted.... chrome is 100X easier to care for but costs more...

do the dc1s even come in chrome under 20"? i remember only seeing big sizes for chrome
