Question POLL: Keep Black wheels or go back to Stock?

Hye guys,

I recently did a small lift and added these American Racing black wheels, but, especially after hearing other friends opinions, I am not even sure if I like the outcome. My question here is, should I keep the black wheels, or switch back to the stock 5 blade wheels and turn the white lettering outward?

COMMENT AWAY!! Thanks!!

I think the only reason it may look a bit off is because it might look better with slightly bigger or more aggressive tires, so if you're going to spend on something I'd do that and keep the black wheels rather than spend money getting new black ones. But I think it looks good how it is with the black. Do what you like!

I think the black looks good. But I LOVE those 5 blade wheels, I am planning on swapping to those sometime in the future.

I saw a silver 4-runner with bronze 5-spoke wheels, but I wasnt sure if it would look as good on a truck or not...

I think it looks good with the black. Just rock it out man, I wouldn't buy new tires if you just got those.

Just saw your from Chesapeake. I grew up near Richmond, I miss it.

Some guys will vote to put black wheels on anything.

But they don't look that great on a color-matched silver like yours.

Go back to the polished aluminum wheel, IMO.

I think it looks perfectly fine. The tires look aggressive IMO, dont know why you guys are saying that they are not aggressive enough. They're BFG A/T's for crying out loud, they're probbably the most aggressive looking all terrain you can get.

OP, only thing I would do is level out the front end.

The truck is almost level. It is about .25 lower in the rear and it looks worse in the pic because I had all 4 stock wheels in the back at the time. I'll get around to switching out to a 1.25in shackle one of these days.

Thanks for all the comments.
