    What would you think would be look better on a Red Double cab 04 taco?
    Xtreme Alloys Series 7028
    Xtreme Alloys Series 7032
    Rock Crawler Series 152 Flat
    or
    American Racing ATX Black?


    I picked these cuz i like the look. Anybody have pics of these on their rides?

    It's gonna be a daily driver so I don't know if if the Crawler would be less suitiable since it is steel (heavier). Would I even notice?

    thanks for any opinions..

    I'll be putting some 265/75/16 Grapplers on them.

    You give specific wheels on the others but just the brand American Racing ATX... which ones are you looking at? The ones with Teflon are greyish and not black.

    There are like 5 different ATX teflon wheels. They are not black... look at pictures in this forum. They are a little lighter than Magnetic Gray color in sunlight.

    181 is Artillery wheels. They are Gray FOR SURE, as they are the wheel I am getting. Chamber, Mojave, and Thug are also all gray color.

    An example of the color is above... NOT jet black like powdercoated or painted rims. Black rims would be DARKER than the tire.

    Its the lighting used. As long as you are not demanding BLACK you will be happy. Do not expect to get the color in that photo.
