As long as they are 5x 4.5. Those look like 4.5 not 5.5 rims They'd probaly fit ok. Paint them black!

Somebody would have to pay me to take those wheels and I still wouldn't put them on my truck. Those are some of the cheapest ugliest wheels ever made, imo.

They'd look decent black I think. But you already have some Awesome rims Why would you want to downgrade to these?

after all the offroading i did, they don't shine the way they used to. it seems like the dirt won't clean off. i would probably need some really strong cleaner. and a lot of the bead locks have a light later of rust. not too noticable, but i just bet new rims would just be sick. i was thinking of new black rims.. but any suggestions would work.

You have to polish them, they aren't clear coated so the metal gets oxidized.

your truck is too new for those rims. they won't look good. they would look good on an older rig.

i'm with trent. give em' some elbow grease and keep yours. as for the minor rust issue. take the rims apart (if you are able to) and paint the bolts.

even better idea. rock both sets. one as a off road/mudder set and the other as an at or mt daily set. if you do get them, keep them white. they'd look better white then black.

thanks guys ;D and hey what's up highroller! definitely been a long time bro. my truck is soo dirty and i swear it's been neglected. i need to redo a lot of lighting on the interior, replace my headlights and fogs with some silverstars, replace my tires.. shoot i don't know but i want my baby to be pretty again. i've been looking around the site and DAMN everyone's trucks look so sick. i think i'm gonna pull all my stickers off, paint either the ring or the bolts on the ring of my rims to black, put full limo tint, maybe do the black painted headlights, and just have a straight black looking truck. ahhh i miss working on my truck and having truck buddies :(

p.s. the last time i tried to get an alignment (almost a year ago) the guys at firestone told me that there was "play" in my bearings and ball joints and told me they couldnt do my alignment because of that. they were trying to charge me about 800 bucks for parts and labor. is that ridiculous or what? so i looked up the parts and found i can buy them for about 100 something bucks. how much do u guys think would be a good price for installation?
