If you're sold on Black, have you looked at any of the Method Wheels? I have methods wheels myself and get compliments on them almost daily. What I like about them is they are aftermarket, but the design is clean and simple. Here is a pic of some Black Method wheels (Not my truck) below.

XD's...
I just went through the same pain staking decision making process. I also have a 2012 silver sport and was tossed between the XD spy and Dick Cepek DC-2. I went with the XD's and once the tires were mounted I have no regrets. It's a good mix of black and machined which pops on the silver. Mine are 17's on Duratracs 285/70/17. I just installed my lift today and the wheels go on tomorrow morning with the alignment. Check out the poll I posted a couple weeks ago on the wheels. Anyway, good luck and go with your gut...

Post some pics as soon as you can.... I am picking up a moto metal sample from my local rim guy on Thursday which is cool cause it will give me time to think.. If I don't go for those than it may be XD's or fuels..

I am looking at...

18" XD Spy
18" Fuel Maverick
18" Gear Alloy Big Block

All come in 18x9/ 4.5 BS/ -12 OS

I know the Fuel and the Gears are very similar the main thing being the Gears are gloss and fuels matte I will admit I am partial to a gloss look.
Which ones did you go with?

I ended up going with Moto Metal 962's.. The picture shown of just the rim on the web looks all black but it is a nice gloss black with some milled accents.. I got a smoking deal on them so it was hard to pass up..

How did your spy's turn out?
