    Think its time for a change. If i could go back id have bought black wheels. That being said, you think i should get mine powdercoated?

    If i do, then i will do the BHLM too.

    I think totally black wheels disappear. Maybe have some accent, center cap, lug nuts, etc?

    I say do it. I wanna do this to my X. It gives it that stealthy look. Especially on that Super white taco, it breaks up the brightness.

    BHLM + black rims would look killer with your setup

    Your rims now are badazzzzzzzzz. I 1st saw your ride on another thread, and all the pic showed was the lip of the rim. I searched and searched unitl I found out what wheels you had. They are unique and look great. If I had the money I would have gone with the exact same wheels/tires.

    I have never been a fan of black rims, until I saw some in person. That's why I went with a black and machined finished. I say go with whatever makes you happy.....but my 1st thought was would you want to mess up some kickass wheels?!?!?!

    You could always paint'em black. Cheaper and looks just as nice. Easier to fix when damaged too.

    Nice truck... The black rims will look clean. I am not a fan of chrome but that is just me. The only chrome I have left is the rear bumper and that will be gone soon.

    Hmm, it's a tough one. I really like those wheels, and there are a lot of white trucks with black wheels. But I do prefer wheels when they are not chrome. It's a tough decision...
