? Chrome & Black Wheels ?

I'm looking for a set of wheels in chrome & black but haven't had much luck finding any. Most of the wheels I find seem to be black with the machined and/or polished finish. Can anyone give me some ideas on some that maybe I've just looked over? Thanks!

Dick Cepeck Torque or American Racing Fuels are what I'm considering. Both black center with polished lip.

Fuels........



Torque......

Thanks but it's the polished and machined that I want to stay away from. I'm looking for chrome and black. I've had both machined and polished wheels before and both were a pain in the rear to keep looking new. Chrome is just so much easier to keep looking new and clean.

^^^^^Damn, had just about decided on the torques but those fuels look nice. I kinda like the machined lip on the fuels vs just the outside edge being machined on the cepeks. We'll see what the goodyear place comes up with as far as pricing and such since I'm using their cc for 6 mnth same as cash. Are the fuels TPMS friendly?

I paid just over $100 each for these 7 years ago. I'm sure they're a bit more nowadays. They are not tpms friendly though. I had them on my '08 since it was new so not having it really doesn't bother me much. Here's a pic of them when my truck was new and mostly stock.

Thanks for the info. I could just do the PVC pipe bomb thing for the TPMS but the other thing about the fuels is that they remind me so much of the wheels on the 05 I had before I got the 08, not that I didn't like them tho. KMC 18s.........



That is kinda what is pushing me towards the torques, that and they are TPMS friendly and the styling of them just seems more modern to me. Still up in the air tho. Been scoping wheels for months and it will end up being 1 of the 2. The fuels do look better than the KMCs to me and I like the dish they have where the torques seem more flush. Dammit, back and forth, pros and cons, hard choice.

If you're talkin to me, I don't want all black or all black chrome on mine. Have white SR5 with chrome rr bumper and chrome grill trim. Rest of trim is black. Want polished or machined/black mix. OP might tho........
