Looking for outside input

I've been considering these wheels since I purchased the truck. However, I don't know how the black centers would look.

It would be helpful if anyone had a picture of a truck with them. I can't seem to find one.



Ion Alloy Series 171 wheels in a 15x8 with a -27mm offset.




Here's the truck.



Clean picture with the old 31's.

I like those rims, but I love the Alcoas.. Keep it stock or go all the way with a body lift, 33"s and all that jazz..

I like the alcoas. But I guess 8" wide wheels would give you a little nicer stance, but also may cause some slight rubbing on the back of the fender (easily fixed).
I could go either way I guess really. Helpful huh?

I would get the new rims. You could probably sell your Alcoas for the same price as the new wheels would cost you.
