Icon7 Mazda Wheel/Tire Combo?

Alright guys, come June/July-ish I'll be needing new tires. Since I sold my old wheels to Jason (Chevyslayer925), I'm stuck with rusting out steelies. So it's time for some "dubs" too.....I'm asking for your input on what would look good on the Mazda. Remember she is Oxford White with black and chrome accents.

I'm 98% sure I'm going to go with BFGoodrich KM2s, in 33x12.5x15 or 33x12.5x18.....

If I go with the 15", I'm thinking Mickey Thompson Classics, the ones Stone has.

If I go with the 18", I'm going to go with these, XD Series 'Hoss' wheels. I'm thinking chrome 18"s on 33" BFG KM2s would be sex.....yay/nay? Black? Chrome?

I would go with a 15 in rim. Tires are going to be alot cheaper that way.

I like the black XD's.

Eh, not my thing. But if your going 18's that would be the way to go. Doesn't another member have them on his? Sullys_ranger, or something?

Personally, I think you should get the 18's, jsut because I don't like those wheels that Stone has. I had a set like them. They are a PITA to keep shining, especially if you live in an enviroment where there is salt on the roads during the winter. I HATED having them. Hell, I had polished aluminum 17" bullits on my 98 and I sold them after a few months because I got sick of how impossible they were to keep clean.

I think the 18's would look good, but they also would hold up a little better. Yes, I'd hold you to it to keep the chrome shined up, but from my experience chrome wheels are better at resisting oxidation that polished alum wheels. Even the black wheels I think would be better than the polished aluminum wheels.

Never realized you had those rims, maybe that's why I've always liked your truck, lol. I think I'm going to go with the wheels in chrome, in 17", on 33" BFG KM2s. Thanks guys! Keep the input coming.
