Which wheel should I get??

Pro Comp 1079 15x8



Or the "overplayed" but beautiful Dick Cepek DC-1's




The DC-1's are $40 more per wheel. But I think they look so good.

I'd do the Procomps, I don't like the black/machined DC1's on any trucks that aren't either white or black.



I don't get why everyone says DC1's are so played out. If anything all of the M/T Classic II style wheels (like mine) and the steel Cragers are played out, they are on wayyyyyyy more trucks then DC1's are.

well i'm soooooo sorry for saying that. lol. IMO...they look good on some trucks...others they dont. i'm talking about the black and chrome dc-1's...the all chrome look good to me though.

Indeed the 8 hole alloys are on just about every truck out there...but they are a timeless good looking design...they'll never get old. sure everybody has 'em....but they are classic and will always look good.

Sorry I wasn't pinpointing you. There is one member on here who knocks the DC-1's constantly and he has quite possibly the ugliest stock rims to ever be seen on a ranger. I didn't mean to sound like such a dick. BTW I love your truck.

I would go with the Pro Comp 8179's I would have bought them when instead of the wheels I have, but I need them quickly and they were on back order.

I hate DC-1's. RangerMuse has the 1079's and they look great on his truck.

1079's get my vote.
