Need Opinions - Which Wheels?

The time has come that I am in the market for a new set of wheels. I still like what I have, but I am replacing them due to one of them being warped. With that being said I need help deciding which wheel would look better on my truck. If you have any other suggestions on a similar wheel please post them.

-Mike

Pro Comp Xtreme Alloy 8179(1st choice)


Ultra Baja Champ(2nd choice)

I like the second choice, but it really hard to tell unless I see them in person or on another vehicle.

Here's the Ultras on WowMike2001's truck. I will see if I can find the Pro Comps on a truck.

I like the Ultras, but the Pro Comps look good too.

Having seen them on the trucks, I vote # 2. Wish I had the cash for wheels but new tires will have to do for now.


Keep in mind either choice will look amazing.

the pro comps look really good but if you are going with 15x10 good luck getting them. JakeH05 ordered some but they got put on like 2 month national back order. However i do believe you can get the 15x8s
