Well I am at it again

My parents and my wife told me to start looking for some rims again for my truck since my birthday and xmas are so close together.

These are the 3 I have decided on

First Choice
2nd Choice
3rd Choice

I know it is my decision ultimately but i like feedback as well.

If you are into photoshop feel free, but I am not asking anyone to do it.

The first ones are too bling, the 2nd ones are played out, so I vote for #3!

I think the first or third would be awesome. As tight as the Cobras are... I just think there are too many of them/not right being a 'stang wheel on a truck.

I hope with those rims you slam it and put in a 3000 watt system. I think if you leave everything else alone the cobras or the Five's would have looked better. But if you go all out the first ones will look awesome.

Ok thanks for your input, even though I do not know what the difference is. The cobras would look better on a ranger. The Five's and the Venoms look about the same. I will not be slamming my truck ever, not on Mississippi roads. As for system just 3000 watts not 5000? How about a mild mannered system that sounds just about perfect to me?

I wasn't trying to come off wrong, just saying that I think those rims have the look of a slammed truck with a huge audio system.
