    no offense taken , that's why I'm trying to get some feedback. These were offered to me for a really, really cheap price so I was considering it.

    They would look good on a dark collered truck as is, but I bet they would look great if powder coated black on your truck

    While I don't like chrome, the Black chrome is not bad. I like the fact they don't look like every other Black and Silver wheel everyone and their momma has. So I voted yes.

    I'm going to vote yes. But I'm not completely digging it, but each time I look St them they look better.

    The concept 8 wheels are pretty sweet looking. Metal Mulisha makes a sick black wheel too, procomp makes them.

    I like the Dark chrome, sometimes i think an all black wheel is to heavy on a lighter colored truck, but then again i got all black on my yota so what do I know lol, either way i dont mind them. Plus if after a couple months you dont liek the black chrome you could just powder coat em black or sell em

    Half the guys on here will tell you to put a black wheel on everything.

    But on your silver TRD sport, with 18" wheels, those dark chromes look good.

    Not that they are my favorite color but they are easier to keep clean then chrome, especially with those nooks n crannys

    Thanks, well one of the main reasons I liked them was because no one has them around and they are different than what everyone else has, like you said everyone has the same ol, same ol styles and black wheels. I think black chrome looks good agianst the silver.

    Well at the price I was given I may have to end up getting these. I also liked the off set these wheels had as it kept the 285's still inside the fender wells and not sticking out. Thanks for the input guys.

    If the price is good get them, the Black chrome might have to grow on you at first. Good thing is you can always powdercoat them if you change your mind. But you may end up loving them.
