    I have the Gear Alloy wheels right now with 285/70/17's I am thinking about switching back to the stock wheels painted black with spidertraxx spacers. Also, keep in mind that i have an all-pro bumper on it's way and plan on building sliders and a rear tube bumper in the near future.

    I also plan to turn the white lettering in (i bought the wheels and tires together and that is how they came). Should look similar to this pic of silverbacks rig, which is awesome, but in red!

    Not a fan of those wheels (I'm an old fart) but think wider is better, for looks and handling anyways. Keep 'em. I DO like those hubs! Where'd yah get 'em???

    I chose the stock because of the all black. I would've chose your gears if those were all black. The gears are nice either way but I'm one of those "chrome" haters.

    keep em. but maybe have the tires remounted blackwall out if you dont like the OWL.

    If you do get rid of the wheels, let me know what you'd want for the set. I like em.
