Need opinion on which Pro Comp rims to buy

I'm having one heck of a time deciding on what rims to buy.
Looking to get 16" rims.
I know I want black wheels and like the look of the 3 from Pro Comp below:

Pro Comp 7069 Xtreme Alloy Wheels



Pro Comp 98 Rock Crawlers



Pro Comp 52 Rock Crawlers




and this is what I'm working with:



Any and all suggestions will be taken, thank you
The rear will be raised 3-4" when my All Pro Expo Leafs come this week
So don't mind the temporary bro lean.

Again, THANKS!

I like the 52s as well, and I'm not crazy about the look of that Yota rim. It looks too "stock". I like more of the 4x4 look

Will probably go with 32 since I can't afford to regear and don't want to turn the truck into a turd

I would avoid the center caps on the 7069. I've already had to replace too because they will come out/ chip paint/ and the very center part will get all melted.

Two* and this was on my rims which are 3 years old now, so I suppose they could have upgraded them

Hm, yeah that's what I was gonna start researching, you lose that much power with 33s huh?

Replace two center caps? I feel like it would look pretty good without center caps as well..?

I'm also curious as to what the center caps alone will set me back if I do so happen to go with the 7069s?

And lastly... how the heck do they melt?

Consensus seems to be it sucks with a standard. It's somewhat better with the auto. Most folks seems to agree there's not a big difference going 265/75r16 or 235/85r16 (just shy of 32") from stock. That's what I'm leaning towards doing.

Well that's no bueno considering I have a 5-speed.
Those are pretty much identical tires except the 265s are 1.18" wider.

So why not just go with the 265s since those seem to be a more widely used tire?

Some folks don't like the pizza cutter look. 235/85's are what i am probably going to put on my truck once my current tires wear out. Think 255/85r16's will be too much without a regear.

What's involved in a regear? Sounds like more of a PITA than it's worth...

In short: it will cost you $500 - $1500 depending on deals / if you do it yourself / etc. Personally, I am handy and have done every form of regular yota maintenance, but i think a regear is beyond my skill-level. YMMV
