    I was looking at getting new wheels, I liked the look of steelies but i figured they would rust out after a year or so.. I went to my local shop and they have these ions for 140 a piece, aluminum which is lighter, wont rust. What do you think?

    Not a fan of the silver lip, personally. Of course that's just my preference.

    What color is your truck?

    IMO that wide silver lip wouldn't look good against white.

    Again, that's just me.

    With white tacomas, I absolutely love the all black rim (<-- sounds awful :( )

    fyi - hit up the photoshop request thread in the photography forum. Some of the posters here do insane work in photoshop and will give you a great idea of what your truck will look like. Just provide a good picture of your truck and the wheel both at the same angle.

    theres a thread on here with white trucks with black rims. theres one that did have a silver ring ,wasnt the ions. it mighta been granite alloys. you could try and find that thread.it had quite a few pics and would give you lots of ideas.
