    I am going slightly crazy trying to decide on wheels. I think I have made up my mind but than I second guess. They will going on my 2012 Silver TRD Sport with either the BFG AT's or Toyo AT 2's in 265 65 18

    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.

    I have the Spy and do not regret my decision at all. The Fuels are nice too... My second choice when looking for mine was actually the Fuel Boost

    The mavericks seem to be getting the best vote so far.. I would guess all this rims are TPMS compatible

    Someone told me to look at the Moto Metal MO962's... They are similar to the mav's and gears

    The mavericks are a matte black and that's the only thing that has me on the fence. I just think matte is dull looking but again I have seen some and liked it.. FML

    Well if your life depended on picking one of the three of those wheels, the better alternative would be to jump.:anonymous:

    It's all in good fun. Pick the one you like. I personally think the whole Black wheel thing is more played out than the Jersey Shore but that's just my opinion.

    I know man.... As for the black wheel thing, I have had chrome on previous vehicles and now I want something in a black with some milled/polished accents...

    I am seriously looking at the Moto Metal Mo962
