    So I was just about to buy some wheelers steelies or some Pro Comp 7089's on Monday but there was a guy in town selling some 16" American Racing 172 series with some 265/70R16's Yokohama Geolanders so I bought them but not sure I like them.

    I think the tire has allot to do with making a wheel look good. They look great, don't get me wrong....I love the way they look on first gens...but I'd get a beefier set of tires and that would set it off and make it look allot better! Still looks good though IMO!

    You bought a set of wheels and tires without making sure you liked them first, and you originally said you were a female stripper but now you say your name is Rick?

    I think you've got bigger decisions to make than deciding on what rims you like...but...as far as the rims go, bigger tires would help but I'm not personally a fan of them as they are now.

    Maybe painted black...not sure.

    i guess it really depends on how much you paid. They look allright, I agree with others... beefier tires would make a big difference. I also think painted or powdercoated black would look sweet as well.

    i dont like um, think they look too plain for that beautiful truck u got and i dont think tires will make the actual rims look better, def tha whole truck but nothing will make those rims look better
