I need some opinions on these 2 wheels for the 35's

Ok guys which ones......



or the classic steelies.



They will be going here:


Price doesnt really matter, there's like a $100 difference, and the alloy wheel is the only wheel I decently like that comes in a 16x10

Neither. I like the wheels you have now. But I'm kind of bias.

Tyler, I love my stockies, but problem is they are toooooooo skinny, and my tires need to be set to a lower PSI to keep an even tread and not screw up how they wear.

I know what you mean. I have to run my 11.50's at 30-32 to have even wear.

First ones. Steel wheels suck. They are heavy, they rust, bend, etc.

Steve, I want to run 16x10's, and alot of wheels are only 16x8's. So theres my dilemma. I'd rather run all black, but they don't have the all black ones in a 16x10. I may just end up painting them in a flat black or something. The first set it is, i'll order them tonight when I get home from work.....

Buy the first set and keep them the way they are. Its really not that much silver. It will really separate everything.

There are tons of wheels out there. Just look around. If you wanted to check out 15x10s you would have even more to choose from.

Matt would have to get new tires then if he went 15x10.

Those do look hidious on that truck, but I think it's b/c they are extremely dirty and its a silver truck.

You'll see a difference if you go to the 16x9. I had 16x8 and when I put the new wheels on, I noticed a difference on how the tire sat on the wheel.

Defiantly look around. There's a ton of wheels that are black and look really nice. Just don't settle or you'll be kicking yourself in the a$$ later on.
