Wihch wheels do you like best?

Hey guys, I have gotten bored with my truck recently, so that means its time for some changes. Eventually I am going to go with larger tires, but my Michelins are still new so they stay until they are worn out. Right now, I have 3 wheel styles I am looking at, all of them are 16x8. Which one do you like best? My GF likes 1 and 2 the best, and I really like 2 and 3.

P.S. These are the only ones I am considering, so please don't post pics of other wheels.

the first one would look better on a lowered truck

and i like the second the best, mainly because 5 lug vehicles need to run 5 spoke rims, not 6 spoke, 6 spokes just look uneven to me


do you have a link to the middle ones?

^^^Me too. I think the 3rd thought would look best with a set of knobby white letter tires, but I really like the second ones too, decisions decisions. If all goes well, i would like to get these this Friday...

Edit: Anyone feel like a photoshop project? lol...

I really like your wheel selection, I chose the second one. My favorite rim is the third, but I think the second one will look better on your truck.


Is that a hot wheels logo on the first rim?

No, no, no... 16x8 as stated. My Michelin's are going on these until they are worn out. (they are brand new,maybe 12,000 miles, so they stay). When they wear out, 265/70/16 BFGs or Bridgestone dueler revo's go on...

those are 16x8, if you were closer, theyre for sale for 500, but not worth it probably after shipping

I can get them brand new for that. So, it definitely isn't worth it.

Aside from that, I still can't decide if I like 2 or 3 better. Maybe they will mount one of each for me...lol

I like number 3 the most, however if any of those rims are clear coated, I would go with that. I just polished up my the rims on my right side 2 weeks ago (intending to do the left)... now those wheels that I just polished are looking the same as the ones that weren't polished. Its a pain in the ***.

I think they are all clear coated, I wouldn't get any of them if they weren't. I am not going to f*ck around with the salt and stuff here in Michigan with wheels that aren't coated... :)
