    What's up guys... I've done a good amount of research on here and am trying determine what wheels to get. I'm horrible at making decisions. I think I've narrowed down my choices to 3 different wheels: Moto Metal 951s, Mickey Thompson Sidewinders, and Ivan Stewarts. What do you all think?? I know some of you feel too many have the Motos, but I'm from central Illinois and you really don't see too many of these around here. Basically, I'm trying to decide what would look best on a black truck. All black wheels, black wheels with some accents or the Ivans. Thanks for any input, this forum is friggn awsome!

    I am also looking for wheels and having trouble deciding what to go with. I like the Ivan Stewarts but I have read the finish on them is not very durable. Don't know how true it is, just something I read.

    Welcome to TW!!! I think that the black with some accents will look awsome on a black truck. have looked into XD, or Procomp wheels?

    Just a quick fun fact... If you ever plan on getting a 6" lift for your truck you will need 17" or bigger!!! Just in case you didn't know that!

    Thanx. Don't think I'd ever go more than 3" though. Yesterday I liked the Ivans the best, today I like the Motos, and tommorow I'm sure I'll lean toward the Mickeys!

    Just realized I called the Mickeys "sidewinders". I meant sidebiters.

    what about the XD Hoss wheels? they come in a 16. I really like those, I might get them for when I get new tires.

    I like those too. I think I'd make up my mind easier if I could see each wheel in person, and that's not gonna happen. Guess I'll keep searchn for more photos of tacos with these wheels.

    I personally love black and chrome!! I'm hoping to buy the Moto Metal 950's in the spring (psssst ... don't tell my wife ;) ).

    Cheers.
