    Like the title says, You decide are my wheels ugly? I kinda have mixed emotions about them. If I were to get rid of them, Id prob. get the TRD off road wheels. Or just some black rock crawler.

    I don't know, I need help in my decision.

    Here are some pics.

    This is when I first painted them in January.

    I think they look fine. I do like the look of the TRD OR wheels better but not enough to spend the extra ~$500. Unless you can get a steal on those wheels I'd invest my money elsewhere. You live in Texas so I assume you offroad some so why not buy some sliders or skid plates? Just my .02
    Good looking truck btw

    Not a fan.

    Truthfully though, i have seen very few trucks with black rims that i didn't think would look better (in most cases much better) with alloy (polished aluminum) or in a few cases, some of the less 'blingy' chrome ones.


    Many of the black rims i see scream 'I'm between jobs'.

    Thanks man, Yes this truck is off roaded quite a bit, Yes sliders would be nice, Im just waiting on a deal on some. But Im gonna hopefully get atleast $150-200 or these rims if I sell them.

    They are way better than the chrome that they started out as.

    I sold mine within weeks of buying the truck, but they don't look too bad rattlecanned like yours are.

    Not a fan of black wheels. They look awesome on a few trucks, the rest of the time they look cheap. I still have stock with painted center caps cause I'm cheap.
