As Alex said, d-windows (if you want steelies)

Other than that, I dont know. Id say stick with an alloy or chrome wheel.

aside me giving you crap for being new, I'd also go with what Scott said, classic locks with blue rings. They'll look good on your truck. It will be a smaller version of Patrick's. I've seen his in person and those wheels lewk gud. Kinda wish I got locks now lol


Good choice on non steelies, they're FTL :D

I think they look okay on most trucks, don't get me wrong. BUT, I'm amazed that the ONLY wheels people seem to suggest or buy are wheels with "holes". There are about 20 versions of round-holed wheels in alloy form, the Classic, Classic II, the Pacer model, the Pro Comp model, Razor MB wheel, etc. etc.

Then, among steel wheels theres the D-window, and all the various black steel wheel options with round or "D-shaped" holes in them.

I'm always amazed when I see somebody put wheels on a truck that have actual spokes.

What do you like, post up some wheels you like and get opinions on them.
This thread is all about what others like, it is your truck.
