    20?!!! Dude.... it's your ride, but I'd stick with 16's to 17's with black wheels. Big wheels equals less tire which defeat the purpose of going off road, unless your planning on staying on the street all the time.

    18 are cool i have 17's on my truck and they look great i think and you still have alot of tire to hope curbs if you dont want to wait for stupied drivers and have no fear off road! my 2 cents!:D

    I had the 20's on my Ram, I hated them. They rode horrible compared to the 17's i had. 18's would be fine, but i wouldnt go any bigger than that.

    IMHO i like the matte black wheels on the magnetic grey trucks. They look sweet. I own a Indigo Ink ( dark blue) I dont think I can get away with the black wheels. I would need to go chrome or grey. I am looking into some grey TRD FJ's though.:D

    Ahh the eternal arguement, black or white.
    Well it's gotta be black with black rim, chrome with others including white, but white rims only with white. Right?
