yea im not a big chrome guy either--i didnt really want to do black, i think thats too much, but think theyd go good with my chrome bumpers. maybe ill keep looking.

i just looked them up..(i think these are them) his price looks a little steep. and the backspacing i dont think will be enough

Honestly, if I were getting wheels like this at a good deal, then they would ONLY be for offroading.

I wouldnt want them for the looks, because Im not a fan either lol.

With some decent center caps, they will look good.

the first set is ugly and chrome will flake over time, even if you paint them.

2nd set are the same wheels i have and will probably need to be polished which is easy. good price for them with tires. I actually just bought 2 more of them today and sent them to my uncles garage lol
for center caps, you can use your stock ones if you run the stock lug nuts. I ran my rears like that for a while. for the front i didn't run a cap. the hub fit perfectly through the hole and it looked good that way
