Black, Polished or Both? Pics!

I'm having a hard time deciding on e set of wheels for my truck. Should i go the black and white theme or should i go the polished route, or black & polished wheel, i have a buddy that will trade straight up for some polished MT classic II's for my stockers. Any suggestion or opinions welcome! Here is a pic of the truck and some wheels to kinda get an idea:









I really want these but cant afford them


What do you guys think would flow pretty well with the white?

I like the first rim pictured (round holes). The contrast between the black and the polished works for me, and I really am getting bored with the "all flat black" look. I'm particularly annoyed when folks assault perfectly good stock Toyota alloys with a can of Krylon. Sorry to everyone that does that, but I find it a little uninspired..... seems like everyone wants that look. I'll stick with a little more individuality..

Reminds me a LOT of the recent home-buying market. 9 out of 10 homes I looked at had every single cliche.... granite counters, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, pedestal sinks, all white EVERYTHING, and my personal favorite: a 4-person bathtub w/ mood lighting, candle holders, champagne bucket and cocaine mirrors (not really), but a 4-square-foot shower.... a cracked elbow waiting to happen.

Uggh.

Ask the guys in the photoshop thread to put both on your truck and then try and decide, they're good and they'll help you get a better idea.

I agree, I am leaning towards the black w/ polished look! On the other hand just trading my stock ones for polished classic II's isnt a bad deal eaither, I just dont know how the polished wheel will look when everything else will be black (rock sliders, bumbers etc.)

I know what you mean, I like to be different too, thats why I stuck with the classic bullet holes, and I got a hell of a deal on them, $350 on wheels and tires, although they were just radial tires, but I still have them. Be different thats what I say but its up to ya, gotta get what looks good!

Definately! I don't see them on tacos much around here, but on the big dodge diesels in my area everyone has the rockstars, absolutely everyone. And they all have the black ones, noone wants the chrome, which is understandable no one seems to want chrome anymore, but my wheels are chrome, I guess im old fashioned
