    Anybody have any suggestions on a set of black 16 wheels. Not really concerned about looks. Just a plain set of cheap black wheels. Nothing fancy. Getting ready to purchase a set of BFG M/T. 285/75/16

    ^ Agreed. You can get entire sets here for about $150 bucks and spray them black. DONE.

    Then your cheapest route would be some black spray paint. Take the time to prep them right and they will look great and be less than steelies....

    Just another idea.
