New Wheels and tires

Went for a little different look than most here like, and a little different that what I was originally going to do. But, i love it.

i like them except for the lip. it looks striped. it would look alot better if the lip of the rim was all black/grey (whatever color it is)

I like the wheels and they go good with the black truck, but just a tad more rubber on them tires and it would be perfect IMO. I just have a thing with too low of a profile tires. I really like the wheels tho, good job!

May want to take those offroad lights off. It is like a Escalade with 26s and a brushguard, they just don't mix.

It looks ok to me, but the off-road lights don't look like they belong on the truck anymore.

You ever see the SoCal ghetto rides? They have chrome light bars and brushbars with 40" rims too......don't forget the Hummers, all blinged out looking like something from a rap video. Thing those ever see a dirt road.....nope.

This member went for something different, thank god he's different and not a sheep like most. Good on him for getting what HE wanted. As for the haters, well your comments add to your post ***** count I guess.

Who says we are hating? It looks awesome, but if we make a suggestion we get hated on. You are the ones hating on us. So according to you we cannot not make a suggestion to the owner on the vechile about a way that may make it look better. They may like the idea or they may not, but that is no reason to call us haters. When I posted a pic of my truck people said I should crank the T-bars to make it look better. Did I call them haters, no. I took their advice and did the crank and I am happy that I listened to them. So how about you stop calling people that give advice haters.
