    I never like the look of completely black wheels on a silver truck, but other than that you need to let us know a little bit more about what you are looking for in a wheel and tire.

    I want off road type wheels preferably gloss black or machined. I'm new to the wheel's and tires thing so I don't really know the popular brands to look for.

    if you have the stock wheels just plasti-dip them to see if you like black. 6 bucks a can is better then 2 grand and then you dont like them

    Thanks I may do that just to see I am leaning more towards machined but I just don't really know what wheels goes with the truck.

    I too have been pondering this same question for quite sometime. I finally found 2 different types of wheels that I like that don't have a price tag that would put you in the poor house. Level 8 is set to intro a new model late March / early April, the MK6. That also have a style that looks a lot like the TRD wheels that Toyota offers. The Second is the F-5 by SCS Wheels. Both will be offered in different colors (4) but the color I like is "Gun Metal Gray".
    I've photo shopped in the Level 8 wheels, take a look.

    Just start going through sites like discounttire, discounttiredirect, wheelmax, ect. and start looking for types that you like. Sooner or later you will find the perfect one. May take some time though haha but I promise it's worth it when you find the perfect one.

    these were not my first choice but the ones I liked more were quite a bit more costly, plus I got a deal on them. When I got mine they went for $115 each on Amazon. Was the cheapest I could find.
