    I am blacking out my white taco now, and I want your opinions on which of these rims you think would look the best on my truck:

    And needs to look good with this bumper coming very soon. I thought the KMC wheels might look to clean for this offroad bumper.

    Yea I like the moto metal's too, thats why I will be keeping them with the Cooper mud tire on them. I will probably get Nitto Terra Grapplers for the new rims and switch off accordingly.

    The KMC's would be my second choice, with the Artillary being the first.

    I think I like the artillery from the pic, but WW FIREFIGHTER on here has the thug wheels and they look badass! The pics do not do it justice.

    I am with you socalblack, I do like the 18 inch KMC Monsters but not sure how a 18 inch rim will do offroad.

    tough decision between the kmc and the artillery, but I think the KMCs will look better, especially with the lift.
