    Talking New Boss rims and Falken tires

    I finally got the pictures of my new wheels today. The truck is dirty from spring driving though. Next on my list is to put on a 2/4" suspension drop to even out the ride height and fix the fender spacing. Nothing radical because it is my only vehicle. Comments about the wheels/tires and suggestions for my suspension are welcome. Thanks.

    Are you planning on putting on a little more chrome in the future? A drop will make it a lot more sleek.

    Chrome is like everything else - it comes when the money allows. I like the clean look of having everything body-colored, but I think my truck needs chrome to look right to me. When I get a chance I want to do a chrome tailgate handle and a couple of other accessories. I think that with the suspension drop it will help make it look sleeker. thanks

    Just my opinion...I believe only three things should be chrome on any vehicle Bumpers Grille and Wheels

    BTW I really like the wheels!

    I somewhat agree on this too. I like chrome, but there is a point when its too much - unless its like a 67 c10 or something. I want to do a little bit more chrome, but not like chroming the whole thing.
    thanks.

    definitely.

    whoever built those has too much money and no taste in vehicle style

    Don't DO that!!! Couldn't you have put a warning before posting the picture!? "Fellas, you'll need to get out your sunglasses for this picture I'm about to post." .... or "Might want to turn the lights off behind you before looking at my next post."

    My eyes feel like someone just took a close up picture of me with the flash on!..

    I like the new wheels on your truck, and I bet they are easy to clean too! I would add a little more chrome to the truck for a nice touch, red and chrome are always a nice look to go with. I love those chrome trucks too, that is totally insane like something from Transformer's! ..............AMY

    New wheels look awesome. I agree with too much chrome is not a good thing. With the red truck I think you should stick body colored parts and lose the black molding down the side. Then it will look sleek. IMHO.
