Ugh...Black Alloys?? Steelies?? Migrane!!

In the market for some Black wheels. I am trying to go with the whole stealth approach and since my truck is black and its the theme for me. :). I am having a rough time trying to decide. I am torn between the cepek DC-1 blacks, the cheaper pro comp alloy whachama call ems I think yellow ranger has em and the faithfull black steelies. My buddy hates the steelies and calls em wagon wheels, but he can fly a kite cause its my truck right? I will be picking up some new BF goodies AT KO's so they will go with them. Need all the insight if ya could and any pics on black rangers. I searched and really only found a couple black rangers with some but not great pics on em. Oh I was also told to just powder coat my rims, since I have the 5 spoke ones I think that came with the FX and later edge packages. Don't think I wanna do that though.

eh....both styles...desertrat.com

15x8 $186.95
16x8 $196.95
17x9 $208.95
Also 18s and 20s avalible., but probablynot in our bolt pattern. I believe all they make in our 5x4.5 is 15" and 16".

the teflon ones rock, i had a chance to pick up a used set for 60 each but didnt have the cash.
check into the weight of each wheel. steel wheels are heavy and add to the unsprung weight.

Hey.

If the mojave's done work out for me......I just found these browsing wheel manufacturer sites.

These are alloys painted gloss black. A 15x8 for our trucks have a 3.75" back space, so it'll stick out nice like. And priced at 4WheelParts is $120.99 each.

Pro Comp Xtreme Alloys 8069:
