    Thanks to Super Werty For the deal on the rims. Just got them installed today. Now I just need bigger tires.

    Thanks. I did not realize how heavy the stock steel wheels are until I took them out of the truck to put them in the garage

    I made a similar switch, though my new (to me) wheels were not black. Also made the same observation on weight of the steel wheels as I stacked them in my garage. I'm kind of waiting till I can sell them to get the new TPMS stems programmed and shut down the stupid dash light.
    Unfortunately, local CL is loaded with steelies, so I am only getting low-baller offers. I may just pull the TPMS valve stems from them and make the pipe canister pressure container, then sell the wheels without them to one of these low ballers.

    Your white truck looks great with the black wheels. I have MGM and like mine better with bright version of wheels.

    Sorry for pic quality, I thought I was getting better shots, but the hazy sun was messing with my exposure.

    Ok. It looks like my next mod will be a Satoshi Grill. Should I do the trim in black or white? With the black rims will that be to much black?

    Yes the Stormtrooper look is coming together nicely. God I am a geek.
