Need help, which wheels?

Well.. I'm working on getting my 98 back on the road for the time being, and I wanted an opinion..

Here's the truck

I would probably use these with my 31's, or buy my old wheels/tires and put the 32's on these DSG Alcoas

Buy back my old 32's (still in awesome shape) and 15x8 American Eagle wheels - $350

I think I might buy these back anyways, just to have 32's

Save my money and wait for a set of chrome Alcoas to come onto the market...

and yes, I know, the truck will need a couple inches of lift to fit the 32's. Its a stock 2wd. Its getting AAL's and shackles this weekend hopefully., and I'm going to keep an eye out for lift coils or spindles.

^^ If you buy them you get tires and wheels for $50 dollars less then just rims.

Thats true, but I hate the polished aluminum wheels that those tires are on. I was considering buying them back and reselling the wheels...

The 32's and Eagle alloys are the best deal.

I might be interested after the Branson trip in buying them if they are the right price.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh those DSG Alcoas are HOT. And $400 isn't a bad price either. I've been keeping some cash set aside for a set, but I've only seen them for over $500 or they are cheaper but in really bad shape.

Bump! Ok, so I can get those DSG alcoas for less than 400 cash. I'm going to see about picking them up this week. Lmao

If I dont like them than I will try to sell them or trade them for chrome alcoas.

Um I guess I just got lucky.. I found them on Craigslist, emailed asking for pics. And then replied back asking what he'd want out of them if I brought him cash this week. And the price dropped more. :)

But I had seen them listed on Craigslist a few times over the past few months...

I'm going to get them. Then most likely, I'll try to trade them for the chrome ALcoas. I like them, but I dont know how they'll look on my 98, and I prefer chrome... :)
