    I scored these rims about 2 weeks ago. They were an impulse buy and I liked the way they looked but still have not 100% warmed up to them. Not sure if I want to sell them and back to the stock rims? I got a great deal on them which was why I bought them. I will be adding an avid side steps and light bar when they arrive.

    They're not bad, I'm just not a big fan of chrome wheels, especially on a sport. But overall I think they look fine, I would keep them for the sake of being different.

    is it the style of rim you dont care for or the chrome?

    if its the chrome, try plasti-dipping them and if you like that then get them powdercoated or something. (or you could leave them plast-dipped).

    X2. Being different, especially on this site is hard. I am not a fan of chrome either, but those look pretty good.

    I'm not a fan of them on your truck. Which stocks do you have, are you talking steal wheels?

    Thanks everyone for your input. I have the stock alloy wheels. I liked the fact the black on the rims brought out the black trim. Never had flashy wheels so I just may need to get used to that.

    I agree with this too. Especially considering you got a deal on them in the first place.
